The Department of Psychology at Louisiana State University anticipates filling one tenure track assistant professor position within the Clinical Psychology program effective August 2023. This appointment will be full-time (nine-months). The candidate must contribute to graduate training specializations in either clinical child psychology or clinical neuropsychology and to the department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in research, teaching, and service. This is an exciting opportunity for a new faculty member to contribute to a doctoral program with a long history of high quality teaching and research in areas of specialization identified as priorities for growth. The new position will be part of the APA-Accredited doctoral program in Clinical Psychology, which endorses a model with a strong emphasis on clinical research. Thus, the candidate is expected to maintain a strong research program with potential for extramural funding in areas related to clinical child or clinical neuropsychology. The candidate must also contribute to the teaching and service mission of the department, as well as the department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. The department houses a psychological clinic which can support clinical research activities, including those related to clinical child and neuropsychological assessment and intervention. Many faculty members also maintain active clinical or research partnerships with area hospitals and schools. Further, there are many opportunities for collaboration with other doctoral programs in the department (i.e., APA accredited-School Psychology, Cognitive and Brain Sciences, and Industrial-Organizational Psychology).
