Open-Rank Tenure Track Positions in Clinical Science

The Department of Psychology at Florida International University (FIU) is searching for two Open-Rank Tenure Track positions in the new Child and Adolescent Clinical Science program. Mid-rank and senior candidates with a strong record of publications and active federal grant funding are especially encouraged to apply. Junior candidates for the position must also have a demonstrated evidence of or very strong potential for extramural funding and a solid track record of scholarship in refereed journals.

The preferred area of specialization is autism spectrum disorders, although other areas in clinical child and adolescence are also encouraged to apply. For researchers in the area of autism who are interested in studying and treating individuals transitioning to young adulthood as well as children, the possibility exists of a substantial recurring endowment. The successful candidate will join 13 current clinical faculty with research interests that include but are not limited to assessment, longitudinal outcomes, prevention/intervention with and/or mechanisms of childhood or adolescent internalizing, externalizing, and learning disorders, and adolescent substance use. The Clinical Science program is closely affiliated with the Center for Children and Families (CCF), an interdisciplinary Center that focuses on research, education, and service, with strong connections to the community and the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the seventh largest District in the nation. In addition, the CCF has as an active mental health clinic for children and adolescents with a well-established staff supportive of evidence-based practice and clinical research and serving more than 2500 families annually.

The ideal candidate would complement the existing faculty in Clinical Science, Developmental Science, or Cognitive Neuroscience doctoral programs. Collaborative research is emphasized in the Department, and many clinical science faculty share investigator status on grants. Many faculty in Developmental Science and Cognitive Neuroscience employ a variety of technologies and populations to study typical development and developmental psychopathology, executive function, emotions, language, social development, learning, and memory and the brain bases thereof.

The department has 38 tenure-track faculty, 8 instructors, and 5 research faculty, more than 150 graduate students spread across five doctoral specialty programs and a master’s program, 9 full-time undergraduate advisors, and 4700 undergraduate majors. The department is young and vibrant, with 32 new hires in the past 5 years, the vast majority being assistant professors, but with well-established and well-funded senior faculty in each area. Currently, department faculty hold over $50 million in grants from federal agencies (e.g., NIMH, NICHD, NIDA, NIAAA, IES, NSF, DoJ).

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to Job Opening ID 510555 at facultycareers.fiu.edu for the tenure track Child and Adolescent Clinical Science Program and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research statement. Candidates will be requested to provide names and contact information for at least 3 references who will be contacted electronically and automatically upon submission of the application. Applicants are requested to send a copy of their materials to the Chair of the Search Committee, Daniel Bagner (dbagner@fiu.edu).
