The Wright Institute Doctor of Psychology Program invites applications for a full- time and half time tenure track faculty positions. Each of these positions are for 10 months. These positions will begin with the 2020-2021 academic year.

We are seeking candidates who can teach and mentor students in a clinical psychology program with a mission to develop “clinicians to society.” We are particularly but not singularly focused on seeking applicants who include extensive academic knowledge and familiarity with socio-cultural issues related to the experience of Latinx populations and communities. The candidate should have experience in clinically serving Latinx populations and the knowledge and ability to assist students clinically serving Latinx populations. Additionally, the ideal full time candidate will possess expertise to teach 8 or more of the following subjects listed below. For a half time position the expectation would be to teach 4 or more of the following subjects: Sociocultural Issues (*this is a mandatory requirement for a successful candidate to teach); psychopathology; intervention classes: psychodynamic, group, CBT, family systems, models of brief intervention, clinical supervision and consultation, therapeutic factors and efficacy; research series: research methods, statistics, tests and measurement, prospectus development; health related courses: psychopharmacology, motivational interviewing, integrated health care (or other health psychology related topics); advanced clinical seminar. Candidates are also preferred who have the ability to direct and instruct graduate level qualitative research.

Applicants must be license eligible or licensed as a psychologist and hold a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA accredited graduate program. Candidates are preferred who also attended an APA accredited internship program.

Applicants must demonstrate the ability to engage students through excellence in teaching and research skills (through dissertation chairing, publications and/or presentations), as well as have a commitment to multiculturalism and to diverse student and faculty bodies. The potential for sponsored research is a plus. Minority applicants and applicants from under-represented populations are encouraged to apply. The Wright Institute is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty.

Full-time faculty typically teach 8 trimester courses per year (Courses are taught weekly for 3 hours per class for 10-13 weeks.) Half-time faculty typically teach 4 trimester courses per year. Other activities include but are not limited to chairing dissertation research, governance service, mentorship of students, and scholarship.

The salary range for these positions is competitive and will be determined by experience. Applications for these positions will be reviewed beginning in November 2020. The positions will remain open until they are filled.

Applications should be submitted digitally to Dr. Allison Briscoe-Smith , and include the following:

• Letter of interest outlining your teaching interests and pedagogy, and your scholarly and clinical interests

• Curriculum vitae

• Syllabi with course evaluations (or other demonstrations of teaching effectiveness)

• Graduate school transcripts if doctorate has not yet been awarded or was received within the past four years (these can be submitted non-digitally)

• Sample Peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and/or professional presentations

• Three letters of reference
