The University of Alabama, founded in 1831, is the flagship campus of a three-campus system. The University is located in Tuscaloosa, a city of approximately 100,000 that was named an All-America City by the National Civic League. Tuscaloosa is home of the Crimson Tide football team, as well as the historic Bama Theatre, the Paul R. Jones Art Gallery, the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, the Tuscaloosa Farmer’s Market, and nearby Kentuck Festival of the Arts and Moundville Archeological Park. The Psychology Department has 36 faculty and 100 graduate students distributed in three experimental (Social, Cognitive, and Developmental) and four clinical (Law, Health, Gerontology, and Child) concentrations. The Department offers a bachelor’s degree in psychology, doctoral degrees in both clinical and experimental psychology, and a graduate minor in statistics.
The University of Alabama values diversity, and we particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations. Our department embraces the values of open and reproducible science, and candidates are strongly encouraged to address in their statements how they have pursued and/or plan to pursue these goals in their work.
