Full-Time Non-Tenure-Track Lecturers in Clinical Psychology

The Department of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Boston invites applications for two full-time, non-tenure-track Lecturers in Clinical Psychology with a track record of success in teaching and clinical work/clinical supervision. Our goal is to successfully recruit one adult-focused and one child-focused lecturer, who will (a) teach undergraduate and graduate courses, (b) provide clinical supervision to doctoral student trainees, and (c) provide therapy or supervision and/or conduct assessments as part of faculty research projects. Courses taught could include, for example, Personality, Abnormal Psychology, Principles of Psychotherapy, or Psychological Testing, as well as additional courses proposed by the lecturer and approved by the faculty.

Requirements include a Ph.D. in Clinical or Counseling Psychology obtained from a scientist-practitioner or clinical scientist program; current professional identity as a scientist-practitioner; current licensure as a psychologist (MA license preferred); demonstrated experience and skill working with people from diverse backgrounds; and clear evidence of excellence in, or potential for excellence in, teaching and clinical supervision. Although initial contracts will be for one year, with the possibility of renewal, these are intended as multi-year, long-term positions, subject to satisfactory performance. The start date will be September 1, 2014.
