Area of research expertise for the Clinical Child position is open, including research conducted within community settings (e.g., primary care clinics, schools, community agencies). The successful Clinical Child candidate will adhere to a behavioral orientation and will be required to secure and maintain licensure in West Virginia. The Life Span position requires doctoral training in developmental psychology, an active research program that complements the Developmental faculty, and the potential to contribute to graduate training in life-span psychology.

Obtaining significant external research support, as well as undergraduate and graduate teaching (including student research supervision and, for the Clinical Child Psychology position, clinical practicum supervision) are expected. Laboratory facilities will be assigned in our Life Sciences Building. Additional facilities and opportunities for both positions are available through the University Health Sciences Center, Center for Excellence in Disabilities, Center for Advanced Imaging, and the Center for Neuroscience.
