The Department of Psychology is a large, vibrant research community with a strong track record of extramural funding and transdisciplinary research and commitment to diversity. Psychology Department faculty conduct highly collaborative research with a variety of organizations within and outside of the University. Researchers at the University of Miami benefit from our location in a highly diverse community.

Secondary appointments in Psychiatry and/or Pediatrics can be arranged for suitable candidates. More information about the Child Division, including links to faculty bios, can be found here: https://www.psy.miami.edu/graduate/child-division/.

License-eligible clinical psychologists are preferred. A Ph.D. in clinical psychology or a related discipline is required.

To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by September 15, 2019. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, reprints or preprints, a brief statement of current research and teaching interests and a statement about their commitment to diversity.
