Job Details

Job Description

The University of Indianapolis’ Graduate Department of Clinical Psychology (GDCP) is growing and seeking TWO faculty members at the Assistant Professor level beginning in Fall 2023. These are full-time, tenure-track positions within our APA-accredited PsyD program. The successful applicants for these positions will be able to demonstrate outstanding commitment to doctoral teaching and dissertation research mentorship.

Any specialty area of interest/expertise in Clinical or Counseling Psychology is open. Additional duties include developing a program of research that engages graduate students, participating in ongoing program development within the PsyD program, and serving on faculty and university committees.

The area of research interest is open, but the successful candidate’s area of scholarship should lend itself well to the development of a program of applied or basic research with the potential to make a significant contribution to the literature. Furthermore, candidates should bring a strong desire to apply their research expertise to chairing and mentoring student dissertations. The program supports many project types, including: traditional quantitative, qualitative, program development/evaluation, integrative/theoretical, and empirical single-case study design dissertation projects.

The PsyD program fully promotes and furthers the value of diversity and seeks to recruit and retain faculty, staff, and students from diverse and under-represented groups. UIndy is looking for candidates with a demonstrated commitment to and success working in diverse, multicultural and multi-racial communities. Applicants who can demonstrate a history of effective mentoring of students from underrepresented backgrounds will be particularly competitive. We offer opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to participate in College- and Department-level diversity committees. In addition, we are home to professional organizations including ABPsi UIndy Student Circle and faculty-led support/climate enhancement groups for students.

The GDCP is located within an academic unit that offers an APA-accredited PsyD program in clinical psychology; MS/MA degrees in Psychology, Mental Health Counseling, and Social Work; MA specialization in Art Therapy; and BA/BS degrees in Psychology and Social Work. The doctoral program, which has adopted a practitioner-scholar model, accepts 30-40 students per year and offers concentrations in adult psychopathology and psychotherapy, health psychology/behavioral medicine, and child and adolescent psychology.

Preference will be given to applicants from an APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology who are licensed as a psychologist or license-eligible. ABDs and doctoral candidates currently completing internship will be considered with the expectation of degree completion prior to starting the position. UIndy GDCP faculty are encouraged to actively engage in provision of direct clinical services to maintain clinical proficiency.

Applicants are asked to submit a list of at least three professional references, a curriculum vita, a cover letter speaking to their qualifications in relation to the position responsibilities, and a statement reflecting on how they infuse diversity into their teaching and scholarship. The positions are open until filled with the review of applications to begin immediately.
