The Department of Psychology at Eastern Michigan University announces an opening for a tenure-track faculty position to serve as Clinic Director in our on-site Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CBHC). This will be a full-time, assistant or associate level, tenured or tenure-track position to begin Fall 2022. Candidates must have their PhD in clinical psychology, must have completed an APA-approved doctoral program and predoctoral clinical internship, and must be fully licensed as a clinical psychologist in the state of Michigan within 6 months of hire.
The successful candidate will be expected to manage the day-to-day operations of the training clinic associated with our PhD program in clinical psychology. This includes: training and supervision of doctoral student trainees; supervision of clinic staff; oversight of clinic scheduling, billing, and budgeting; preparation of reports on clinic operations for APA accreditation; management of clinic technology needs; development of wide-ranging clinical services to meet curricular goals and needs; providing clinical supervision and coordinating supervision provided by others; establishing and maintaining relationships with referral sources and external practicum placements; evaluation of clinical outcomes and program evaluation of clinic operations; updating clinic policies and procedures; and obtaining service or training grants relevant to delivery of clinic services. Clinic director candidates must be committed to supporting evidence-based approaches to assessment, therapy, teaching, and supervision. The successful candidate must be highly organized, dependable, team-oriented, have excellent communication skills, and be able to work at a high level of relevant productivity with minimal supervision.
The clinic director will serve as a core member of our doctoral program faculty, working on an 11-month contract that includes all benefits afforded tenured/tenure-track faculty members. Clinical psychology faculty are expected to mentor students, maintain a program of research, and engage in service on departmental, college, and university-level committees. The successful candidate also will be expected to teach clinical psychology courses (which may be clinical supervision) and supervise graduate student milestone projects (e.g., thesis and dissertation research, qualifying exams) for students under their mentorship. Competitive applicants will have a vision for further developing the clinic by increasing its visibility within the community, expanding clinical services, and incorporating innovations that further the mission of the clinic and the clinical psychology doctoral program. Previous experience managing a clinic is desirable but not required.
