California Lutheran University — Assistant Professor – Clinical Psychology


Background:
The California Lutheran University Graduate School of Psychology (GSoP) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in our APA-accredited PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology beginning in August 2019. Applicants must have a PhD or PsyD in Clinical Psychology at the time of appointment and be licensed or license-eligible as a psychologist in the State of California. The successful candidate for this position must demonstrate outstanding commitment to doctoral teaching, clinical training, and dissertation research mentorship as well as a record of scholarly productivity.

Cal Lutheran has recently become a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and McNair Institution, and we are looking for candidates with a demonstrated commitment to and success working in diverse, multi-cultural and multi-racial communities, particularly in mentoring African American, Latino/a, and Native American students. Cal Lutheran encourages applicants from all faiths, and advocates for justice and fairness for all people. Cal Lutheran is an accredited, private, comprehensive university that engages students in critical inquiry and is dedicated to educating leaders for a global society. The campus is located midway between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, and is home to more than 2,800 undergraduate and 1,250 graduate students who come from 35 countries and represent a variety of faiths. 45.2% of Cal Lutheran students are from underrepresented groups.

California Lutheran University is committed to providing equal opportunity in employment for all persons, regardless of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender, gender identity or expression, or any other basis protected by applicable law. No person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in any program, activity or facility of the University on the basis of these factors in a manner consistent with applicable federal and state laws, regulations, ordinances, orders and rules, and University's policies, procedures, and processes.

Upon request, reasonable accommodations in the application process can be provided to individuals with qualifying disabilities. Please contact the Human Resources Department for further information or to request an accommodation.

Primary responsibilities include teaching doctoral-level courses in clinical psychology, including courses that address both the applied and scientific foundations of psychology as well as research methods. Additional duties include developing a program of research that engages students and contributes to the cultural diversity of Cal Lutheran, participating in ongoing program development within the PsyD program, serving on faculty committees, and establishing collaborative relationships within the University and broader community. Because Cal Lutheran is designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), applicants who can demonstrate both a commitment to improving access to higher education and effective mentoring of students from underrepresented backgrounds will be particularly competitive.
The GSoP has 10 core faculty members in a School that is comprised of a PsyD program in Clinical Psychology, Master of Science programs in Clinical Psychology and Counseling Psychology (MFTemphasis), and two large community counseling centers that provide low-fee Spanish and English clinical services. The Centers also provide practicum and clinical research opportunities for PsyD andMFTstudents who are supervised by a Clinic Director and 21 licensed clinical supervisors.

The PsyD program accepts 17 students per cohort and offers emphases in areas such as dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and intimate partner violence. The School distinguishes itself by having small classes, a caring faculty and staff, state of the art facilities and technology, and a rigorous curriculum designed to train students in accordance with APA's Profession-wide Competencies. The program is committed to training students to integrate practice and research, develop competency in research and scholarship, and appreciate human diversity by serving the underserved. The PsyD program fully upholds and furthers the value of diversity as stated by the University and seeks to recruit and retain faculty, staff, and students from diverse and under-represented groups.

Applicants must have a PhD or PsyD in Psychology from a regionally accredited institution at the time of appointment (ABD applications accepted).
