This position offers a unique opportunity to contribute to training in a research-focused, clinical science doctoral program.

Primary responsibilities of the position include ongoing direct clinical supervision of adult outpatient psychotherapy, related didactic instruction, oversight and review of external practicum placements, and formal evaluation of students’ developing clinical competencies.  Area of specialization in clinical service delivery is open, although demonstrated competence in evidence-based practice of psychology with adults, and related supervision capacities, is strongly preferred, consistent with the orientation of the program.  The successful candidate must have a doctorate (or A.B.D.) and appropriate training in clinical psychology or an affiliated field (e.g., counseling psychology).  The successful candidate either must be licensed by the State of Indiana and credentialed as a Health Service Provider in Psychology (HSPP), or prepared to acquire these credentials as a condition of ongoing employment and promotion in the clinical ranks.  Prior experience providing formal supervision is highly desirable but not required.  Clinical faculty are full members of the faculty, and are expected to demonstrate excellence in the areas of clinical practice/application, service/engagement, and clinical/classroom education.  Opportunities for collaboration with research faculty on a variety of ongoing projects, as well as for additional didactic course teaching, are available.
