Ph.D. in psychology prior to their appointments. All positions involve
teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels and the direction of
theses and dissertations. Ability to teach graduate statistics courses is
desirable. Teaching experience, an established publication record, and
strong potential for extramural funding are expected. We are especially
interested in applicants whose research complements that of current
faculty, including health psychology, family relationships,
psychopathology, higher-order cognitive processes, and forensic psychology.

graduate and undergraduate social psychology courses.

CLINICAL (2 positions): Applicants must have received a Ph.D. in clinical
psychology from an APA-accredited program, must have completed an
APA-approved pre-doctoral internship, and are expected to become licensed
