The University of Mississippi Medical Center
| The Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the University of Mississippi Medical Center invites applications for a tenure-track, faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank to work as part of the APA-approved Psychology Residency (internship) Training Consortium (http://psychologyconsortium.umc.edu). The consortium has a long and prestigious history of training productive clinical researchers. Due to Jackson, Mississippi's demographics and location, UMMC is an ideal site to conduct research on health disparities, minority mental health, and rural mental health, in addition to research typically conducted in urban settings.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree in child clinical psychology from an APA-accredited program and have completed an APA-approved internship. We are particularly interested in child psychology applicants who will collaborate with psychology faculty in established areas of research (e.g., child anxiety disorders). Formal postdoctoral training and experience are desirable. Applicants are expected to have a record of scholarly productivity. Responsibilities will include maintaining scholarly productivity, attracting extramural research funding (e.g., NIH), provision of clinical service, supervision of trainees, and limited teaching. Tenure-track faculty members at UMMC receive a state salary. Salary and the research incentive plan are competitive. Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
Send a letter of interest, CV, and 3 letters of recommendation to Chair, Child Psychology Search Committee, Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior, UMMC, 2500 N. State St., Jackson, MS 39216 (LLJohnson2@umc.edu). The Medical Center invites and strongly encourages applications from women and members of ethnic and racial minorities.
