The Clinical Psychology Program at Vanderbilt University in the Department of Psychology of
the College of Arts & Science invites applications for a tenure track position as an Assistant
Professor in Clinical Psychology. The Vanderbilt Clinical Psychology Program is internationally
recognized for its strength in experimental psychopathology, affective science, intervention
research, and clinical neuroscience. We seek an exceptional individual who has a strong record
of creative, methodologically rigorous and conceptually driven research, who has clear potential
for obtaining extramural funding, and who has demonstrated the potential for effective
teaching. We seek candidates who will also increase the department’s commitment to diversity,
equity, and inclusion through their research, teaching, mentoring and/or lived experience.
Although individuals from all areas of adult clinical psychology will be considered, we are
particularly interested in scientists who specialize in behavioral genomics, socio-neurobiological
contributors to psychopathology, or substance use/addiction research. A Ph.D. in Clinical
Psychology from an APA and/or PCSAS-accredited clinical program is required and completion
of an APA-accredited internship is preferred but not required.

We have strong collaborative relations with the Department of Psychology and Human
Development at Peabody College and with the Department of Psychiatry and other departments
affiliated with the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Institutional resources are outstanding
and include the Vanderbilt Brain Institute, the Academic Computing Center for Research &
Education, Vanderbilt Institute of Imaging Science, Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science &
Engineering, the Data Science Institute and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on
Human Development. For information about the faculty, department, and interdisciplinary
opportunities, please see

academically and culturally diverse community of faculty. Minorities, women, individuals with
disabilities and members of other underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
