The I-O specialization requires a PhD in I-O psychology, quantitative psychology, measurement or a related field, while the clinical specialization requires a Ph.D. from an APA- or CPA-accredited clinical psychology program. Faculty activities include establishing an independent research program, research mentoring, and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are seeking applicants with a strong record of research productivity. In addition to contributing to the I-O or Clinical programs, we especially encourage applicants whose work fits the broader mission of the department and University, including candidates who specialize in an area of scholarship that leverages technology or has implications for technology, or who have an interest in developing relationships with underserved and low SES communities in the Chicago area.

I-O Psychology Program: The I-O Program at Illinois Tech is dedicated to a scientist-practitioner model with a balance of research and practice. Current areas of I-O program strength include methodology, selection, training, leadership, occupational health psychology, humanitarian work psychology, diversity and cross-cultural research. An ideal candidate will complement and strengthen the current areas of expertise in the program, with preference for research and teaching interests in methodology, big data and analytics, or group dynamics and technology.

Clinical Psychology Program: The APA-accredited Clinical Psychology Program at Illinois Tech is dedicated to a scientist-practitioner model, with a balance of research and practice and a cognitive-behavioral focus. We are seeking applicants with a strong record of research productivity and the potential to secure external funding. The research emphasis is open, but we are particularly interested in the areas of neuropsychology,addiction science, trauma, mood disorders, aging, and health psychology.

 

The Department of Psychology has three scientist-practitioner graduate programs, in Clinical Psychology, I-O Psychology, and Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling, as well as a growing undergraduate program. Faculty and students work in a collaborative atmosphere both within and between programs. Many faculty collaborate with the Center for Research and Service, an on-site consulting center that supports training, funding, and research efforts of students and faculty and draws on our close affiliations with organizations in the city and suburbs. More information on the I-O and Clinical programs and the Department of Psychology can be found at http://www.iit.edu/psych/. Illinois Institute of Technology is located in the vibrant city of Chicago with wide range of opportunities for research and consulting.

The Department of Psychology is committed to promoting a climate that enhances diversity and inclusion, and also to achieving diversity in its faculty. We are particularly interested in applications from qualified applicants who could contribute to the diversity of our department.

A letter of interest (including statements regarding research and teaching), curriculum vitae, selected publications, and three letters of recommendation should be sent to iitpsych_search-group@iit.edu (or alternatively I-O/Clinical Search Committee, 3424 South State Street, Tech Central Room 201, Chicago, IL 60616).

Colleagues – Please forward this to any young investigator who might be interested (my apologies for any cross postings)

 

The Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory at Davidson College invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the Department of Psychology. The successful applicant will join an NIH-funded laboratory examining behavioral and pharmacological factors contributing to substance abuse using animal models (e.g., drug discrimination, drug self-administration). Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree in pharmacology, neuroscience, or psychology, and experience with animal models of behavior. Ideal candidates will have a background in the experimental analysis of behavior with basic expertise in neuroscience and pharmacology. The person accepting this position will play a strong role in overseeing two large NIH-funded projects, and typical activities will include (but will not be limited to), collecting data, writing manuscripts, presenting data at scientific conferences, and preparing extramural grants. Teaching may be an option for those with interest, but it is not a requirement of the position. Because the individual will be working with a diverse research team that includes undergraduate students, candidates with experience with undergraduate populations through teaching or supervising research projects will be especially desirable. Interested candidates should send their current CV and arrange to have three letters of reference sent electronically to Mark Smith at masmith@davidson.edu. Inquires may be made to Mark Smith at the same address. Davidson College is a highly selective, nationally recognized, Liberal Arts College located 20 minutes north of Charlotte, North Carolina. We are an equal opportunity employer and encourage applications from diverse populations.
