Assistant/Associate Professor in Child Behavioral Health
Munroe-Meyer Institute/ University of Nebraska Medical Center  

The Department of Psychology in the Munroe Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center invites applications for a tenure-track, faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank to work with a decidedly behavioral group of colleagues. Mid-career candidates (at late Assistant or Associate level) are especially encouraged to apply.  The position requires a balance of clinical, research and teaching related to children and adolescents with behavioral, emotional, social, developmental, cognitive, and physical disabilities. Specific areas of research focus are open, but demonstrated success in applied clinical research is essential.  Possible research areas could include medical adherence, health promotion and outcomes research, diabetes management, ADHD, chronic pain, academic interventions or parent training.  Due to Omaha, Nebraska’s demographics and location, MMI is also an ideal site to conduct research on rural mental health, integration of behavioral health into primary care, and health disparities, in addition to research typically conducted in urban settings. However, the specific area of interest is less important than promise of scholarly success.  An important responsibility will be the development or continuation of an independent research program.  Faculty rank will be commensurate with experience and productivity. 

Faculty at the Munroe Meyer Institute teach courses in two graduate programs; a master degree program designed to produce licensed level practitioners with BCBA certification and a PhD program in applied behavior analysis. The Department is also part of the APA-accredited Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology (http://cehs.unl.edu/nicpp/). The consortium is one of the largest in the country and has a strong history of training successful practitioners and clinical researchers.  

All candidates should have a Ph.D. and clinical internship from APA/CPA-accredited programs in psychology with specialty training in pediatric or clinical child psychology or school psychology. Formal postdoctoral training and experience are desirable. Applicants are expected to have a record of scholarly productivity.  Responsibilities will include maintaining a clinical research program, teaching, mentoring and supervision. Tenure-track faculty members at MMI receive a state salary. Salary and benefits are competitive. Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. 

Send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to Chair, Psychology Search Committee, Department of Psychology, MMI 985450 Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE 668198-5450 (vmorriso@unmc.edu). The Medical Center invites and strongly encourages applications from women and members of ethnic and racial minorities. An Equal Opportunity Employer/M/F/D/V.
