The Department of Psychology at the University of Vermont seeks to fill a tenure-track position in Clinical Psychology at the Assistant Professor level, to begin August, 2013. Candidates should have an established program of independent research in clinical psychological science, focused on adult psychopathology (e.g., anxiety, mood disorders, eating disorders, addiction).

The successful candidate will be expected to: 1) undertake an active program of research that leads to publication and presentation in peer-reviewed scholarly outlets and to seek extramural funding for that research; 2) teach courses as needed by the department, including some of the following: undergraduate courses in abnormal psychology and introduction to clinical psychology, graduate courses in adult psychopathology, and specialty courses in evidence-based clinical intervention; 3) mentor undergraduate and doctoral students in research; and 4) provide clinical supervision for graduate trainees. The University of Vermont is committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment and is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and/or service.
