Location Chicago,  IL
Other Location
Description The Adler School is founded on an important idea: Our health resides in our community life and connections. This is what drives our groundbreaking curricula and commitment to social responsibility, from our campuses in downtown Chicago and Vancouver and through Adler Online. We work with those courageous enough to want to change the world.  Our doctoral and master's programs—many of them nationally recognized in fast-growing fields—prepare students to lead social change in the fields of psychology and mental health, criminal justice and public safety, business, public policy, and advocacy.  In January 2015, we will become Adler University, a new name selected to support our vision as the leading academic institution advancing socially responsible practice, healthy communities, and a more just society.
 

We are announcing full time core faculty openings for academic year 2014-2015 in the clinical psychology (PsyD) program. Position duties include teaching in the PsyD program, providing service to the Adler and greater professional community, participation in committees, chairing dissertations, and effectively mentoring graduate students.  We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in the areas of assessment, child and adolescent psychology, biological bases of behavior and psychopharmacology, trauma, and Adlerian psychology.


 
Required Skills Applicants must have a doctorate degree in Psychology (PsyD or PhD) from an APA-accredited program, demonstrate a strong record of graduate level teaching, familiarity with the scholar-practitioner training model (the local scientist model in particular), and evidence of proficiency in scholarship and other professional activities. It is preferred that clinical faculty have an Illinois license or be license-eligible. The positions require excellent communication and interpersonal skills and an ability to collaborate effectively with students, faculty, and professional staff. A particular commitment of the School, rooted in Adler's emphasis on social interest, is training psychologists to work with marginalized and underserved populations and who are committed to social justice. Demonstrated commitment to socially responsible practice, social justice issues and diversity are important.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions have been filled pending budgetary approval. Applicants should submit a detailed curriculum vitae, the names of three professional references with contact information, two to three course syllabi and/or teaching samples for review, and a letter of interest electronically to dkatz@adler.edu or by mail to: David Katz, Ph.D., ABPP, Chair, Clinical Psychology Department, Adler School of Professional Psychology, 17 N.
