TWO Tenure-Track Positions Clinical Science

The Clinical Science area in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech invites applications for two Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty positions in our nationally awarded (2017 ABCT Outstanding Training Program) and dual accredited (APA and PCSAS) program, to begin August 2019.


Virginia Tech's Clinical Science area emphasizes the integration of science and practice in research and training for health improvement and preventive intervention across the lifespan. In order to complement our existing strengths, we are especially interested in candidates with diverse emphases in minority or rural mental health and health disparities, translational psychological science, intervention efficacy and effectiveness, transdiagnostic mechanisms, neuroscientific approaches, dissemination and implementation in community settings, policy development, and/or innovative service delivery. The content area is open, but we prioritize research that aims to reduce health and mental disparities, promote equity, and address the needs of under-served populations. Our faculty has multiple interests including risk/resiliency and adaptation across contexts, decision making, developmental psychopathology, stress and coping, emotion regulation, and neuroscience perspectives cutting across conditions such as autism, anxiety, PTSD, depression, obesity, and drug use. We seek clinical scientists with a successful track record in research, obtaining (or potential for obtaining) extramural funding, and teaching effectiveness. Candidates will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses, mentor undergraduate and doctoral students, and engage in department, college, and university-level service activities.

 

Research in the Clinical Science area aligns with several of the university's Destination/Strategic Growth Areas (www.provost.vt.edu/destination_areas.html), most notably Adaptive Brain and Behavior across the lifespan, Data and Decisions, Global Systems Science, Policy, and Equity and Social Disparity in the Human Condition. Consistent with Virginia Tech's land-grant mission, the Clinical Science area is dedicated to public health and service, which allows successful candidates to have potential collaborations across the university, including the Virginia Tech School of Medicine, the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, School of Neuroscience, School of Public and International Affairs, Master of Public Health Program, Center for Transformative Health Behavior, and the Center for Autism Research. For more information about the Department, College, and University, see www.psyc.vt.edu, www.cos.vt.edu, www.vt.edu/index.html and www.provost.vt.edu

 

Candidates must hold a doctorate in Psychology or allied discipline, with preference for candidates with doctoral training in clinical psychology. Applications must be submitted online at http://listings.jobs.vt.edu  (#TR0180131) and should include the following. A cover letter; curriculum vitae; a statement of research interests; statement of teaching interests and philosophy; a statement of any previous activities aimed at expanding the diversity and/or mentoring of minorities, women, or members of other underrepresented groups as well as how the applicant will further Virginia Tech's commitment to build a culturally diverse and inclusive educational environment (www.diversity.vt.edu); relevant publications; and three letters of reference. Inquiries about the position can be sent to Dr. Angela Scarpa, Chair, Clinical Science Search Committee, ascarpa@vt.edu; please include CS search in the subject line.


Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received, and will continue until the positions are filled. Candidates are encouraged to apply before October 15, 2018.
