Munroe Meyer Institute & University of Nebraska Medical Center:  Omaha, NE

The Department of Psychology at the Munroe Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation is recruiting a Ph.D. or PsyD. in Clinical or School or ABA Psychology. The department is a decidedly behavioral group of clinical educators and clinical researchers who seek to incorporate training and research activities into clinical service delivery, including in traditional center-based behavioral health clinics, in integrated primary care settings, and in integrated school-based clinics and consultation services. Rank will depend on qualifications.  Clinical activities center on delivery of assessment and treatment behavioral health services to neurotypical children, adolescents and families with behavioral health needs as well as individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Experience with behavioral parent training is highly desired.  All faculty members at MMI play an important role in education and provide clinical supervision for postdoctoral fellows and for interns from the APA accredited Nebraska Internship Consortium.  Some faculty also teach courses in our ABA doctoral program while others teach and supervise practica for our master degree program which prepares graduates for both licensure in Nebraska and certification as BCBA.  Preference will be given to candidates who are both licensed (or license eligible) in Nebraska and who also hold a BCBA certification. Faculty members are also 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 and we hope to attract applicants who are committed to helping students from diverse backgrounds succeed.  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 immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
