The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Iowa invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Psychological Clinical Science to begin in the academic year 2016. We invite applications from candidates with outstanding research records and exceptional promise who work within any sub-area of clinical psychology, with a focus on biobehavioral processes. We are especially interested in candidates who work at the intersection of biological and psychological processes underlying mental disorders or health outcomes (e.g., mechanisms of etiology or treatment of psychopathology in children or adults, clinical neuroscience or neuropsychology, and clinical health psychology). Candidates must hold a PhD, and have an established record of research in high-quality journals. Candidates are expected to show strong promise of an externally funded program of research in psychological clinical science. In addition to maintaining an ongoing successful program of research, the faculty member holding this position is expected to teach courses (graduate and undergraduate) in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and supervise clinical PhD students in the Seashore Psychology Clinic. The appointment is expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor and requires that the PhD be received by August 17, 2016. The review of applicants will begin on October 12, 2015, and will continue until the position is filled. The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is experiencing a period of vigorous growth and enhancement, including planned construction of a new building containing laboratory, teaching, and office space. The Clinical Psychology program at the University of Iowa is a top-20 ranked program and was recently awarded an NIH T32 training grant. There are extensive opportunities for collaboration with researchers across many other departments on campus, including the Carver College of Medicine (e.g., Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Public Health). There are also state-of-the-art MRI and fMRI facilities at the University of Iowa, including a research-dedicated 3T scanner and a new 7T scanner, along with state-of-the-art high-throughput genetic analysis facilities.
