The integration of science and practice in service delivery and the development and dissemination of behavioral interventions for a wide variety of problems is a major interest of our faculty. Our work in this area seeks to bridge traditional health models of treatment development and practice in both our research and training emphasizing the links between efficacy and effectiveness research, prevention, access and cost, dissemination science, program evaluation, and social policy. This entails multiple levels of analysis including individuals and their environments, the healthcare systems in which interventions are delivered, as well as healthcare policy. The candidate will be an integral member of a diverse faculty with strengths in basic and/or applied studies on behavioral principles in remediation of diverse clinical problems, meta-science, integrated healthcare, behavior medicine, health behavior, gerontology, MBSR, trauma and adversity, emotion, and cultural competence.

We encourage all candidates with a strong research record in clinical psychology to apply. Teaching and research interests in measurement theory and research methods, statistical methods applied to clinical research, approaches to inventions with complex clinical presentations (e.g., DBT, etc.), dissemination science, and/or learning theory would be a plus.
The successful candidate will be expected to publish original research, seek/obtain grant funding, mentor graduate students, supervise clinical training, and teach graduate and undergraduate courses. The orientation of the program is cognitive-behavioral with an emphasis on behaviorism. The Department also has programs in Applied Behavior Analysis and Cognitive & Brain Science. Collaboration across program areas is encouraged. The Department has state-of-the-art resources for research through a recently funded NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) for Integrative Neuroscience, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), high-density EEG, and functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).
