Assistant Professors (Clinical and Developmental)

Murray State University

Murray, KY
Assistant Professors (Clinical and Developmental). The Department of Psychology at Murray State University (www.murraystate.edu ) seeks to fill two tenure-track assistant professor positions, both beginning August, 2013. For both positions, the PhD must be completed by time of appointment (ABDs with a documented plan of completion by appointment date will be considered). Successful candidates will provide evidence of excellence in teaching, the ability to establish an active research program, and the interest and ability to involve undergraduate and master’s level graduate students in their research.

Clinical Psychology
Must have Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from an APA-approved program and licensure in Kentucky (or eligibility for licensure within one year). Preference will be given to candidates with a cognitive-behavioral orientation who complement existing areas of faculty specialization. Candidates must have the ability to teach General Psychology, additional undergraduate courses (e.g., Abnormal Psychology), and graduate courses in our clinical master’s degree program (e.g., psychopathology, psychotherapy, treatment electives). The successful candidate will serve as a Practicum instructor, supervising adult and child therapy and assessment cases in a community-serving, sliding-fee-scale clinic based in the department.

Developmental Psychology
Must have Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology. Area of interest is open but preference will be given to candidates who complement existing areas of faculty specialization. Candidates must have the ability to teach undergraduate courses in General and Developmental Psychology, and graduate courses in our master’s degree programs (e.g., Developmental Bases of Behavior).
