The Department of Psychology consists of 21 tenure-track faculty and offers a BA and BS in psychology, an MA in experimental psychology, and a PhD in clinical, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology (See http://psy.uncg.edu for more information). UNCG’s clinical program emphasizes the integration of science and practice and values both basic and applied research on human behavior across the life span. All applicants should show evidence of a strong independent research program, a commitment to working with students from diverse backgrounds, and excellence in graduate and undergraduate teaching and practicum supervision. We invite applications from psychologists whose research focuses on child/adolescent clinical psychology, broadly defined. We are especially interested in applicants whose research utilizes a risk and resilience perspective in the study of health behaviors/healthcare disparities or childhood adversity, particularly within African American youth and their families. We seek to build on a long-standing training focus of our clinical program to provide services to underserved populations in a culturally competent manner, as well as complement current research strengths in ethnic minority populations.

UNCG is a Minority Serving Institution, with an undergraduate student body consisting of approximately 27% African Americans and 7% Hispanic or Latino Americans. UNCG and the Psychology Department foster an environment of collaboration across departments and schools and support community-engaged research. UNCG is proud of the diversity of its student body and we seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position. We are an EOE/AA/M/F/D/V employer and are strongly committed to increasing faculty diversity (http://web.uncg.edu/hrs/).
