Position description

UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology (CCSP) at the Gevirtz School invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor to begin July 1, 2023.

We seek applicants with expertise in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and related developmental disabilities, with a specific focus in the areas of (a) autism assessment (screening, diagnosis, characterization, or outcome measurement) and/or (b) autism intervention (program development, evaluation, or community implementation). The appointed person would also help to expand UCSB’s Koegel Autism Center research programs and further its reputation as a national and international leader in autism-related scholarship and clinical expertise.

Recent and prospective doctoral recipients, post-doctoral scholars, researchers, and faculty members at early to mid-career stages are encouraged to apply. The Department is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service. Responsibilities will include (a) research and grant-writing, (b) graduate and undergraduate teaching, (c) clinical supervision, (d) doctoral student advising, and (e) university and public service.

The Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology is home to a vibrant faculty of productive scholars and educators. We’re home to two doctoral degrees accredited by the American Psychological Association: School Psychology and Counseling/Clinical Psychology, a master’s degree program in School Psychology, and the largest undergraduate minor on campus. Our mission is to generate and disseminate knowledge, provide expertise, and prepare the next generation of diverse scholars in applied psychology. We strive to be recognized for excellence and innovation in research that fosters the psychological well-being and social equity of all people, especially vulnerable populations.

The Gevirtz School is a diverse institution in a diverse community in a richly diverse state. The School is part of UC Santa Barbara, one of only 62 members of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the first AAU member to attain the status of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). As a public, flagship institution, the Gevirtz School at UCSB is deeply committed to centering diversity in our work. In addition to finding faculty who bring scholarly expertise in the areas that are described above, we seek to ensure that successful candidates engage in scholarship, teaching, and service that will help us work with the diverse populations in our region, state, and nation to achieve the goal of educational and mental health equity.

The Gevirtz School offers masters and doctoral degrees from the Department of Counseling, Clinical and School Psychology and the Department of Education, as well as teaching credentials and masters of education degrees from the Teacher Education Program. The School also offers three undergraduate minors (Educational Studies, Applied Psychology, and Science & Mathematics Education) and is currently seeking approval for an undergraduate major.
