Position Summary

The Department of Psychology at The University of Tulsa (TU) seeks candidates to fill 2 full-time tenure-track positions in Clinical Psychology at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 15, 2020.  Tenure-track faculty have a 9 month contract period (Aug 15-May 15). Successful candidates are expected to develop a funded research program, teach undergraduate and graduate level courses, and supervise the clinical work of graduate students.  Information about the Department and our APA accredited PhD program can be found at: https://artsandsciences.utulsa.edu/psychology/

The Clinical Psychology program at TU is APA accredited and adheres to the scientist-practitioner model.  The faculty is small, collegial, and committed to research, with strong ties to community organizations.  Several faculty are members of interdisciplinary research institutes.  Our goal is to train professionally competent clinical psychologists with a broad background in the field of psychology who can apply psychological theory, assessment, research methodology, and clinical skill to complex clinical problems. Our students go on to obtain both clinical and academic positions in child and adult specialties.  The program has an in-house training clinic that provides free therapy and psychological assessment services for all ages, with an emphasis on underserved populations. The clinic provides foundational training to graduate students in the program prior to their seeking external practicum experiences from a wide variety of community placements.

All faculty within the Department are expected to engage in teaching (undergraduate, graduate), research, and service.

Minimum Qualifications

Applicants must have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from an APA accredited program and be licensed or license-eligible in Oklahoma.  The applicant should have a strong record of programmatic research, external funding (or the potential to secure funding), and an interest and ability to contribute to clinical supervision of students at the Department’s training clinic.  The area of research specialization is open, but preference will be given to those with a strong quantitative background who use cutting-edge methodology and seek to incorporate psychobiological and/or cognitive processes.  The clinical program seeks to fill teaching gaps not covered by existing faculty including, but not limited to:  objective personality assessment, psychopathology, cognitive psychology, addictive behavior, and intellectual assessment.  Interdisciplinary interests are encouraged and it is important that the candidates share our commitment to the recruitment, retention, and mentoring of students from a wide range of underrepresented and marginalized groups including those from diverse racial, ethnic, and LGBTQAIP backgrounds.
