doctoral student trainees, and (c) provide therapy or supervision and/or
conduct assessments as part of faculty research projects. Courses taught
could include, for example, Personality, Abnormal Psychology, Principles of
Psychotherapy, or Psychological Testing, as well as additional courses
proposed by the lecturer and approved by the faculty.

professional identity as a scientist-practitioner; current licensure as a
psychologist (MA license preferred); demonstrated experience and skill

possibility of renewal, these are intended as multi-year, long-term
positions, subject to satisfactory performance. The start date will be
September 1, 2014.
