About James Madison University

Mission

We are a community committed to preparing students to be educated and enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives.

Vision

To be the national model for the engaged university: engaged with ideas and the world.

Who We Are

Located in the heart of Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley, the city of Harrisonburg is approximately 120 miles from Washington, D.C. and Richmond, VA. With a population of just over 53,000, Harrisonburg is one of the most diverse communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia. JMU is a selective, public institution with a growing national reputation for offering experiences that lead to an outstanding education and inclusive environment for students, faculty and staff. The student body includes approximately 20,000 undergraduate and 1,900 graduate students, with over 1,000 full-time instructional faculty.

JMU offers thriving programs in the liberal arts, science and technology, and professional disciplines at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral levels. The university is committed to expanding diversity, fostering equity and inclusion, and supporting superlative teaching and scholarship. JMU has achieved national recognition for the high quality of its academic programs, focus on maintaining strong student/faculty interaction, and innovative faculty research.

General Information

The Clinical & School Psychology Doctoral Program in the Department of Graduate Psychology at James Madison University (JMU) is seeking an outstanding professional psychologist to join the core faculty of its innovative, APA-accredited program in Clinical & School Psychology in August, 2022.

The College of Heath and Behavioral Studies (CHBS) is working to identify and dismantle oppressive racist and discriminatory policies, practices, and processes while advancing inclusive excellence and promoting a CHBS culture in which every member can flourish. We are especially interested in qualified candidates with a demonstrated commitment toward building equitable and inclusive environments. Consider joining us in achieving our goal of continuing to grow as a diverse college that embodies an atmosphere of belonging.

The new hire will serve as a core faculty member and program director. We wish to recruit a strong scholar in clinical research in the areas of psychopathology, assessment, intervention, or other areas relevant to professional psychology. With the majority of time allocated to supporting students and instruction within the Clinical & School Psychology Program, this hire will also support JMU's transition to R2 and National University status as an institution.

Duties and Responsibilities

Responsibilities include teaching two graduate courses each term; chairing dissertation committees (3-6 additional course credits); and scholarship and service to the department. The program director will receive a course release. This is a 12-month position as the program curriculum requires students to complete courses in the summer. As director of the program, this individual will collaborate with the university-based training clinic director to enhance the clinic's infrastructure related to clinical research. The new hire will work in partnership with the department leadership team.

This tenure-track position will be filled at either the associate or full professor level.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will possess a doctorate from an APA-accredited program in Clinical, Counseling, School Psychology, or a combined program, be eligible for licensure in Virginia, and have a commitment to an integrative, scientific, humanistic approach to the field and profession.

The Clinical & School Psychology Program emphasizes intensive, integrative training and scholarship with high-quality students who already possess at least a master's degree. The program mission is “to produce leading health service psychologists who are broadly trained in the science and practice of psychology, actively self-reflective, optimally prepared to work in a wide variety of settings with diverse clientele, and committed to an ethic of personal responsibility, social awareness, and global engagement.” The program is highly collegial, collaborative, and self-reflective and enjoys excellent administrative support. Core faculty are committed to JMU's values of academic quality, community, diversity, excellence, integrity, and a focus on student development.

James Madison University is committed to identify and dismantle oppressive racist and discriminatory policies, practices, and processes while advancing inclusive excellence and promoting a culture in which every member can flourish. We are especially interested in qualified candidates with a demonstrated commitment towards building equitable and inclusive environments.

Employment is contingent upon the successful completion of a criminal background check.
