The Psychology Department at Eastern Illinois University (EIU) has an opening for a full-time (9-month) Assistant Professor, tenure-track faculty position beginning August 2013. Duties include teaching graduate courses in clinical psychology and undergraduate courses in psychology, maintaining an active research program, supervising graduate student theses and practicum/internship experiences, and participating in service to the department and university.

The Master's of Arts in Clinical Psychology is designed for students with career interests in master’s-level clinical practice or those who plan to obtain a doctorate. The foundation of the Clinical Psychology program is the scientist-practitioner model with training rooted in theoretical knowledge and ethical practice. The clinical training component provides students with instruction in empirically-based psychotherapies, assessment, and diagnosis, culminating in a practicum and a two-semester internship. The research focus of the program is designed to develop students’ critical thinking and quantitative skills, and includes coursework in research design and analysis, and a required thesis. The program typically enrolls 10-12 students each fall with a total of approximately 22 students across the two-year program.

The EIU Psychology Department has 18 full-time faculty members, including four who hold doctorates in clinical psychology. The department serves approximately 450 undergraduate majors and offers, in addition to the M.A. in clinical psychology, a school psychology specialist degree.  For training purposes, the Department recently opened a Psychological Services Clinic, which serves the local area.

Candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) from an APA-accredited clinical psychology program, although ABD candidates will be considered.  Other requirements include demonstrated evidence of teaching excellence at the college/university level and a commitment to research and scholarly work.

Electronic applications are preferred, but paper applications are welcome. Applicants should send an application letter, vita, three letters of reference, and available reprints to:
