Postdoctoral Fellow in Psychology at Smith College

The Department of Psychology at Smith College invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in psychology beginning July 1, 2014.  Under the supervision of Patricia Marten DiBartolo, Ph.D., this postdoctoral fellowship offers a combined teaching and research position at a selective liberal arts college. The candidate will conduct independent research with the focus aligned to Dr. DiBartolo’s research programs in perfectionism and anxiety, especially in youth, as well as learning outcomes assessment within classes and for our undergraduate psychology majors. Teaching responsibilities are two courses per year, to include contributions to the department’s research methods course and a course within the candidate’s area of expertise that complements the offerings in our department. A Ph.D. in clinical psychology is strongly preferred, although other related areas of specialization (e.g., counseling; social work; applied developmental) may be considered. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand or all requirements for the degree fulfilled by the start of the appointment. A commitment to undergraduate research is essential.

Our psychology and related faculty have expertise across a wide range of clinically relevant topics, including autism spectrum disorders, risky alcohol behaviors, health psychology, positive psychology, hoarding and obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, transitions following divorce and many others.  In addition, the Five College Consortium, comprised of Smith, Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Hampshire Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, provides a rich intellectual and cultural life for faculty and students, as well as collegial opportunities for teaching and research.

Submit your application at http://apply.interfolio.com/23054 with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a teaching philosophy statement, a statement identifying how your own programmatic research converges with Dr. DiBartolo’s scholarship, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on November 30, 2013. Smith College is an equal opportunity employer encouraging excellence through diversity.
