Job Description

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst ( invites applications for a tenure-track, academic year, faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in our Clinical Psychology Program, starting in fall 2024.  We seek an outstanding and creative scientist with an established record of success and a program of research, or evidence of the ability to establish one, with the potential to address the biggest problems in the field of mental health. We recognize that high-impact programs of research take many forms, including potential for sustained extramural funding, driving paradigm changes in public policy and/or discourse, or pioneering the study of new and important areas within clinical psychology.  

 Preferred applicants may possess expertise in any area of clinical psychology, including interdisciplinary fields connected to clinical psychology, whose work complements and broadens existing strengths in our program (e.g., clinical and developmental neuroscience, family research, psychotherapy and intervention research). We believe that research that is community-based, utilizes qualitative approaches, and addresses issues related to diversity science are rigorous and important areas of inquiry in our discipline. We are excited to review applications from candidates whose research programs engage with such topics and methods, as well as those from candidates who utilize innovative approaches to neuroscience and advanced quantitative methods in clinical psychology. 

 Along with the application, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, statement of teaching philosophy, a diversity statement, three samples of representative research papers, and contact information for three references.

 We will begin to review applications on October 1, 2023, and will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.  For more information on the position, including minimum qualifications and to submit an application, please visit:
