Appointment Status



IU Bloomington Psychological & Brain Sciences

Position Summary

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Psychological and Brain Sciences

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University (IU) is seeking applicants for an open rank (i.e., Assistant, Associate, or Full) tenure-track professor faculty position in the area of clinical psychology. Area of research specialization within clinical psychology is completely open. To continue our department’s longstanding tradition of scholarly innovation and excellence, we seek candidates who will broadly increase the department’s diversity, equity, and inclusion through any of the following: their lived experience, research, teaching, and/or mentoring. A doctorate (e.g., PhD, ScD) in psychology or a related field is required at the time of appointment. The expected start date is August 2023, though a later start date may be considered for candidates who need more time to transition to the position.

Our doctoral clinical psychology program has an excellent track record of funding graduate students, including an NIMH-funded T32 translational science research training grant, among others. The program is accredited by PCSAS and APA.

The department provides strong support for the continued professional development of early and mid-career faculty, evidenced by a strong track record of mentoring tenure-track faculty from point of hiring to tenure and to promotion to full professor. The university provides competitive startup funds, and the department arranges service and teaching assignments so that pre-tenure faculty can prioritize time on research.

Applicants should have a program of research with the potential for growth and contributions to the department’s research mission. Teaching responsibilities typically include three courses per academic year.

Bloomington, Indiana is a university town with high quality of life. Bloomington is within a 1 hour drive of Indianapolis and 2.5 hours drive of two other major metropolitan centers. Bloomington also has a low cost of living relative to entry-level faculty salaries. The campus is home to many thriving affinity groups and offers an exceptional selection of cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities. Department practices are family-friendly and the university has a flexible remote work policy. For more information about the departmental culture, especially with respect to hiring and diversity, please see: There, you will also find contact information for a range of people with knowledge of the hiring process, as well as department, campus, and life in Bloomington, who have volunteered to be search advocates and are not on the search committee. If you have questions that you may not feel comfortable bringing to the department chair or the members of the search committee, we encourage you to reach out to these faculty.

To arrive at the broadest applicant pool possible, we initially ask for only the following application materials: a cover letter, CV, research statement, diversity statement (i.e., a statement on fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in and out of the classroom), teaching statement, and one representative research article. The research statement should include a short research narrative that highlights what you find most exciting about your existing research, the key questions that excite you, and how you will develop a research program around those questions. To reduce applicant burden, letters of recommendation will be requested only after an initial selection stage.
