Director of Clinical Training (DCT) PsyD Program

Summary of Duties

Marywood University is seeking a tenure-track, core faculty member with the necessary training, experience, and abilities to serve as the Director of Clinical Training (program director) for our APA accredited Psy.D. program in clinical psychology.  Continuously accredited since 2006, this competitive, university-based, full-time program includes an on-campus Psychological Services Center (student training clinic serving the community), small cohort size (8-10), and excellent student outcomes.  In addition to providing students with foundational knowledge in psychology, the program teaches students to be sophisticated consumers of research, reflecting our scholar-practitioner model.  The structured curriculum allows students to progress from novice to the early stages of a competent clinician in assessment, intervention, and supervision/consultation.

This 9-month full-time position combines administrative, academic, and clinical responsibilities with part-time administrative duties over the summer months also required.  The ideal candidate will have demonstrated successful leadership experience in an academic or clinical setting.  Full-time teaching load is 18 credits for the academic year, with a 6 credit reduction for program administration.  Teaching responsibilities will be primarily at the graduate level, although there is the possibility of teaching undergraduate courses.  While area of scholarship is open, research and clinical experience in trauma, forensics, or substance use would nicely complement existing faculty areas of interest.  Supervision of student research is required.  Clinical experience and expertise in working with both children and adults is ideal.  Faculty are also expected to provide service to the department, university, community, and the profession.  Rank is at the assistant, associate, or full professor level, commensurate with qualifications.

The search will be ongoing until the position is filled.
