THE UNIVERSITY OF TULSA
HENRY KENDALL COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
The Department of Psychology at The University of Tulsa (TU) seeks candidates to fill 1-2 Visiting Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology positions that will begin August 15, 2022. Candidates are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses. Information about the Department and our APA accredited clinical psychology PhD program can be found at: https://artsandsciences.utulsa.edu/psychology/
Preferred applicants will have a PhD or PsyD in Clinical or Counseling Psychology from an APA accredited program, but applicants who have completed all course requirements and an APA approved internship will be considered. The ideal candidate will be an experienced instructor at the college/university level with a strong interest in teaching both undergraduate and graduate students.
This will be a 1-year appointment. There may be an option for renewal, pending budgetary constraints and candidate performance. The teaching load is 6 courses per year with opportunities to teach at graduate (Psychopathology, Neuroscience and Psychopharmacology, Professional Ethics in Clinical Practice, Evidence Based Clinical Interventions) and undergraduate (Intro to Psychology, Social Psychology, Research Methods) levels. There is also the possibility of teaching a course in a specialty area, but candidates must be interested in teaching at least 2, if not more, of the listed Graduate courses to be competitive for the position. It is important that candidates share our commitment to the recruitment, retention, and education of students from a wide range of underrepresented and marginalized groups including those from diverse racial, ethnic, and LGBTQAIP backgrounds.
Our department offers both the MA and doctorate in both clinical and industrial-organizational psychology. The Clinical Psychology program at TU is APA accredited and adheres to the scientist-practitioner model. Our goal is to train professionally competent clinical psychologists with a broad background in the field of psychology who can apply psychological theory, assessment, research methodology, and clinical skill to complex clinical problems. Our Department is small, collegial, and committed to teaching and research. TU is a small, private university with approximately 4500 undergraduate and graduate students. Thus, our class sizes are generally small and provide an opportunity for faculty to work closely with students. Professional development opportunities are available at the Henneke Center and Faculty Resource Center (https://utulsa.edu/henneke-center/). Tulsa is a mid-sized (population ~400,000), family-friendly, affordable place to live, with easy access to urban, suburban, and rural areas. The city of Tulsa is nestled in an area where the Muscogee Creek, Cherokee, and Osage tribal territories share a common boundary. Tulsa is also home to The Gathering Place, an expansive riverside park, that Time magazine calls “One of the World’s Greatest Places” (https://www.gatheringplace.org/). Oklahoma is geographically diverse, including plains, grasslands, rocky mesas, and mountains, and is culturally unique as it is home to 39 federally-recognized Native American tribes.
Review of applications will begin February 1, 2022 and continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should submit (preferably in PDF format): a cover letter, statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching effectiveness (teaching ratings, if available), a current curriculum vitae, a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement, and 3 letters of reference. If available, applicants may also submit representative publications (optional). Inquiries should be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
