Assistant/Associate Professor in Psychology (47 views)

The Department of Psychology at the Munroe Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation is
recruiting a Ph.D. or PsyD. in Clinical or School Psychology. The department is a collegial group of
clinical educators and clinical researchers who seek to incorporate training and research activities
into clinical service delivery within a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary center. MMI recently
moved into a brand new, state of the art facility and has prioritize expansion of innovative clinical
and educational programs serving those with a wide range of physical, cognitive, social emotional,
and behavioral disabilities.
Clinical activities center on delivery of behavioral health assessment, diagnostic and treatment
services for neurotypical individuals (especially children, adolescents and families) as well as
individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the lifespan. Referrals come from
schools, physicians, and community agencies throughout the region. Faculty may choose to focus
their clinical services, training and research in 1) outpatient BH clinics at MMI, 2) integrated primary
care sites across the Omaha metro area, or 3) school based mental health clinics in the surrounding
community.
All faculty members at MMI play an important role in education and provide clinical supervision in a
large, well funded internship program within the APA accredited Nebraska Internship Consortium
and in a growing postdoctoral fellowship program. The department is also home to the Mid America
Mental Health Technology Transfer Center, which is a federally funded collaborative network that
supports resource development and dissemination, training and technical assistance, and workforce
development to the mental health field. We are a decidedly behavioral program by orientation, but
are open to applications of diverse, yet aligned theoretical orientations. Some faculty in MMI
Psychology teach courses in our ABA Masters degree program which prepares graduates for
licensure as a mental health practitioner and also certification as a BCBA. Licensure (or license
eligible) in Nebraska is required, while board certification (particularly BCBA) is also valued. Faculty
members are encouraged to develop and participate in clinical research. Specific areas of research
interest are less important than fit within our mission.
Candidates with a clinical internship from APA/CPA
accredited programs in psychology are
preferred. Salary and benefits are competitive. The Institute invites and strongly encourages
applications from members of ethnic and racial minorities. Omaha is a growing metropolitan area of
over 900,000 with a vibrant arts community, low cost of living and excellent schools. Review of
applicants will begin Jan 1 and will continue until the position is filled. Rank will depend on
qualifications. Send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to https://unmc.peopleadmin.com/postings/55327
