Position Details

The Department of Psychology at Wesleyan University (Middletown, Connecticut) seeks to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Clinical Psychology. The appointment is scheduled to begin July 1, 2018. Preference will be given to those whose work focuses on psychological or behavioral interventions, although research area is open.

Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level. Salary, fringe benefits, and start-up funds will be competitive. The Department currently has 18 full-time faculty members in cognitive, developmental, neuroscience, psychopathology, cultural, and social psychology; some faculty also contribute to interdisciplinary programs including Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Integrative Sciences, Neuroscience and Behavior, and Science and Society. There are additional opportunities to participate in a departmental postdoctoral training program.
