Assistant/Associate Professor - Neuropsychology and Health Psychlogy

The Department of Psychology at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. These are full-time, 12-month academic appointments for research-focused faculty members. We seek applications from individuals with programs of research that can contribute to our Neuropsychology or Health Psychology tracks. Candidates with either an established track record of extramural funding or strong potential to obtain extramural funding within the next 5 years are especially encouraged to apply. Competitive salary, space and start-up packages will be provided.

Expectations include obtaining external research funding, as well as teaching and mentoring doctoral students within our PhD program in clinical psychology. Additional clinical supervision, and service opportunities will be secondary to research-related activities. The successful candidate will have a doctorate, postdoctoral training experience, and a demonstrated track record of research productivity, with strong potential for developing an extramurally funded innovative research program. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research interests focus on issues related to diversity and those that have direct relevance to clinical neuropsychology or clinical health psychology. Applicants whose programs of research may complement other areas of strength within the University including neurodegenerative disorders, stress and psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, and the intersection of neuropsychology and behavioral health are also encouraged to apply. Candidates with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, experimental psychology, or related fields are also encouraged to apply.

The Department of Psychology at RFUMS houses an APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical psychology with specialization tracks in Neuropsychology, Health Psychology, and Psychopathology, as well as an MS program in Clinical Counseling. The Department is comprised of eight full time faculty and is strongly committed to the Boulder Model of training. The Department of Psychology is uniquely situated to collaborate with active research groups within the College of Health Professions, the Chicago Medical School, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, the College of Pharmacy, and Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. RFUMS is committed to maintaining a strong research reputation and facilitating research through state of the art research facilities in the new Innovation and Research Park which houses the Brain Science Institute and its three aligned research centers: The Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and Therapeutics, The Center for Brain Function and Repair, and The Center for Stress Resilience and Psychiatric Disorders. Moreover, there are ample opportunities to develop research collaborations in Chicago (35 miles to the south) and Milwaukee (50 miles to the north). The RFUMS campus is adjacent to the James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center and the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, both of which provide the Department with additional research and clinical training resources. The Department of Psychology also plays a key role in ongoing community-based research collaborations focused on enhancing health and reducing substance use in the surrounding communities.

RFUMS recognizes the value of diversity within the Department, College, and University. It seeks to diversify its faculty along multiple dimensions, including via recruitment of faculty from groups that have been historically marginalized or excluded. Individuals from historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed continuously until the position is filled. It is expected that initial interviews will begin in late November 2019, and for full consideration, applications should be received no later than November 1, 2019. To apply, please email (in a single pdf packet): a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, statement of teaching/mentoring philosophy, and 3 letters of recommendation to
