Pediatric Psychologist Endowed Professorship-Suicide Prevention Research

Pediatric Psychologist Endowed Professorship 

The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Sciences at Children’s Mercy Kansas City invites applicants for Nick Timmons Endowed Professorship in Suicide Prevention Research. Psychologists with an academic record in suicide related research are encouraged to apply. This faculty position will entail clinical care, research, and program development. The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Sciences is comprised of 52 child psychologists, 8 developmental pediatricians, and 7 child and adolescent psychiatrists. In collaboration with the Children’s Mercy Research Institute and Department of Pediatrics, we seek to expand upon existing suicide prevention clinical and research programs. Additional responsibilities may include community educational presentations and teaching/supervision of medical and psychology trainees through the hospital’s APA-accredited psychology internship, psychology and developmental-behavioral pediatrics fellowships, pediatric residency program, and psychology practicums.

This position requires: 

  1. An earned PhD or PsyD in clinical psychology or counseling psychology from an accredited college or university
  2. A completed APA-approved internship
  3. License eligibility in Missouri and Kansas
  4. A record of funded research and scholarly publication commensurate with an academic rank of Associate or Full Professor

Consistently ranked among the nation's best children's hospitals, Children's Mercy integrates innovative clinical care, research and academic advancement to transform outcomes for half a million children in Kansas City and across the globe. In 2018, the Children’s Research Institute received $150 million from the Hall Family Foundation and the Sunderland Family Foundation. This funding is supporting the construction of a new 375,000 square foot research building (anticipated completion August, 2020), as well as extensive investments in faculty, staff, and programs, all dedicated to pediatric research. We have mature collaborations with more than 50 hospitals and academic institutions worldwide, and strong ties with regional partners such as the University of Kansas, University of Kansas Medical Center, University of Missouri-Kansas City, and Stower’s Research Institute, which provide a rich research environment and support for continued professional development.

The position carries a non-tenure track academic appointment at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine, with rank commensurate with qualifications and experience. The position includes a competitive salary, benefits package and research stipend. The Division of Developmental and Behavioral Sciences at Children’s Mercy offers a desirable and collegial work environment with an excellent quality of life. Children’s Mercy is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff and fostering their success when hired.
