Duties and Responsibilities:

Responsibilities include teaching two graduate courses each term; chairing dissertation committees (3-6 additional course credits); and scholarship and service to the department.

As director of the program, this individual will collaborate with the university-based training clinic director to enhance the clinic’s infrastructure related to clinical research. The new hire will work in partnership with the department leadership team.

This tenure-track position will be filled at either the associate or full professor level.
