University of Florida Department of Clinical and Health Psychology

United States

Description

The Department of Clinical and Health Psychology in the College of Public Health and Health Professions invites applications for a 0.5FTE non-tenure-track assistant professor faculty position in the Neuropsychology area of concentration.  The successful applicant will be responsible for providing clinical assessment services to the Interdisciplinary Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Clinic at the Fixel Center for Neurological Diseases and will be expected to build an intervention service designed to treat persisting symptoms after concussion and more severe traumatic brain injuries.  Ideally, the intervention service would contain treatment elements designed to promote brain health that could also be extended to patients with disorders of aging, including cognitive and movement disorders. Clinical services will be conducted by the faculty member with psychometrist assistance, with the potential to expand to provide a clinical training rotation for advanced graduate students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows in the Department’s training programs.  In clinical training, the incumbent is expected to provide direct supervision of trainees and to be committed to diversity initiatives. A key component of the position is involvement in interdisciplinary efforts throughout UF Health.  The successful applicant will show dedication to the scientist-practitioner model of education and training and is expected to show commitment to fostering departmental goals through collaborative efforts and participation in Departmental decision-making. This is a half-time (0.5FTE), 12-month position with the title of Clinical Assistant Professor.

The Department is a free-standing clinical psychology department within a CEPH-accredited college of Public Health, which allows it to establish its own missions in research, teaching, and service to the larger University community.  The Department has over 40 core faculty, over 80 doctoral students, and two APA-accredited programs: a doctoral program in clinical psychology and a clinical internship in professional psychology. The Department has a 60-year history of providing APA-accredited doctoral and internship training in clinical psychology and advanced specialty-specific training in four major areas of study: Neuropsychology, Clinical Health Psychology, Clinical Child and Pediatric Psychology, and Cognitive and Emotion Neuroscience. The doctoral program has been ranked in the 93rd percentile by the National Research Council’s data-based ranking system.
