The Department of Psychology, College of Science, at Virginia Tech invites applications for TWO Assistant Professor, tenure-track faculty positions in Clinical Science to begin August 2023 in our nationally recognized (2017 ABCT Outstanding Training Program) and dually accredited (APA and PCSAS) doctoral program.

Our department values a wide range of methods and approaches, including neurobiological (e.g. fMRI/EEG/ERP), sociocultural, translational, computational, qualitative, big-data, and community engaged research. Similarly, skills in advanced statistical expertise are of interest. All applicants are expected to have a strong and fundable program of research and to contribute to both graduate and undergraduate supervision and instruction in clinical science. Individuals studying the effects of adversity, social determinants, race/ethnicity, discrimination, neurodiversity, or those whose work samples predominantly under-represented or minoritized populations are especially encouraged to apply. Review of applications will begin on October 10th and will continue until the position is filled.
