Individuals with backgrounds across the field of psychology (Clinical, Counseling, Developmental, Social, Cognitive, Cognitive Neuroscience, Community, etc.) with relevance for health will be considered for the position.  The successful candidate will be expected to teach at all levels of the curriculum and to maintain a dynamic research program that engages undergraduate students in substantive research outcomes.
