The Department of Psychology, College of Arts and Sciences, Loyola University Chicago (LUC) invites applications for the Frank J.

As an urban-based Department of Psychology, we are dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from under-represented and under-served populations. The Department currently has over 25 tenured or tenure-track faculty, serves 1,800 undergraduate psychology majors and more than 600 neuroscience majors, and has three PhD programs (Developmental, Clinical, and Social). For more information about the department, please visit its website at As part of a university-wide, multiyear hiring initiative that embraces diverse perspectives and voices, the department seeks applicants in Clinical/Community Psychology who employ community participatory research methods to understand and promote health/mental health equity and address contexts that contribute to disparities (e.g., poverty, inequality, discrimination, oppression). This could include community partnered approaches to understanding community needs, developing community-driven solutions, designing prevention approaches, translating basic research into evidenced-based community interventions, or informing and advocating for policy that addresses racial inequality. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the Clinical PhD program, and to teach one or more undergraduate course(s) in as well as graduate courses in, for example, Clinical Psychology, Community Psychology, Assessment, Health Psychology, Family Psychology, Community Participatory Research Methods, and/or Statistics.

The candidates will have a Ph.D. in Psychology at the time of appointment. Candidates for the position must clearly demonstrate the potential for excellence in research and teaching and have a record of (or clear potential for) distinguished scholarship, grant-funded research, and student mentorship. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to mentor and support students from diverse backgrounds. We especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. We also encourage applications from scholars committed to interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines) and the successful pursuit of external grants. The candidate should be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic Education. Candidates should submit to (1) a brief letter of interest; (2) a current Curriculum Vitae; (3) a statement outlining the applicant’s research agenda; (4) a statement on teaching experience; and (5) a statement addressing past and/or potential contributions to mentoring a diverse student body through research, teaching and other channels and engaging a diverse community through scholarship and service. Applicants should also arrange for three recommendations from individuals prepared to speak to their professional qualifications for this position, especially in terms of scholarship, teaching and mentorship, to be submitted electronically to the above website (letter writers will receive an electronic prompt from LUC). Candidates may forward additional materials related to teaching excellence and samples of scholarly publications to: Catherine DeCarlo Santiago, PhD, & Scott Leon, PhD, Search Committee Co-Chairs, Department of Psychology, Loyola University Chicago, 1032 W.
