The University of Minnesota's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has an opening for a licensed or license-eligible adult clinical psychologist to fill a clinical track Assistant Professor position. The Department is recruiting an outstanding clinician with expertise in working with mood disturbance, personality, self-harm, suicidality, and trauma using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Prolonged Exposure, and Motivational Interviewing, among other therapeutic approaches. Clinical experience across the lifespan - including adolescents, adults, and older adults - is critical. Although this is a clinically-oriented position, candidates should have clear academic potential as demonstrated by recent publications including first-author publications and some evidence of NIH grant-writing experience.
The new faculty member will collaborate with other Psychologists and Psychiatrists in the Department who employ DBT for a variety of presenting issues in an outpatient setting. The existing DBT program (certified by the Minnesota Department of Human Services) offers individual therapy and skills groups to adolescents and adults and is actively engaged with community providers of DBT. This includes a longstanding formal DBT consultation team. Inpatient facilities are on site, allowing for uninterrupted patient care when hospitalization is necessary. An adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is under development and may offer additional opportunities for intervention if the candidate is interested. The position includes the opportunity to supervise outstanding trainees, including practicum students from the University of Minnesota's clinical psychology program, pre-doctoral psychology interns from our APA-accredited internship program, and psychiatry residents.
The new faculty member will join an active and growing faculty of 55 members, 25 of whom are psychologists. The University of Minnesota is a highly ranked research institution and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has an extensive portfolio of ongoing studies with opportunities for collaboration, including studies involving neuroimaging, neuromodulation, cognitive training, and psychotherapy. This is a unique opportunity to exercise creativity in clinical care, to collaborate at a high-level in building a program, to teach and supervise outstanding trainees, to contribute to cutting edge clinical research, and to join a highly collaborative and engaged faculty.
