The Center for Children and Families (CCF), an interdisciplinary center, and the Department of Psychology at Florida International University (FIU) are searching for a rank-open tenure track position for a clinical psychologist with interests in ADHD and/or associated disorders (e.g., conduct problems). The CCF has 31 faculty associates (e.g., clinical child and school psychologists, developmental psychologists, psychiatrists, biostatisticians, health economists) and more than 100 trainees across four colleges (Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Public Health, Education) who study child and adolescent mental health and typical development. The CCF has a tripartite mission that includes research, education, and service. The CCF faculty hold over $35 million in grants from e.g., NIMH, NICHD, NIDA, NIAAA, IES, NSF, focusing on research in treatment and outcomes of ADHD in preschool through high school; substance use/abuse and risky behaviors in teens and young adults; intervention with anxious children; early intervention/prevention for at risk toddlers and young children; eyewitness testimony in children; community-based intervention for disruptive behavior; and learning, language, emotions, and cognition in typical, at risk, and diagnosed children.
The home department for the recruited individual will be the Department of Psychology, which has 37 faculty and more than 125 graduate students in six graduate programs—clinical science, developmental science, legal psychology, I/O psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and mental health counseling. The Clinical Science program, which focuses on children and adolescents, is only 3 years old, so the individual hired will help shape the new program towards accreditation. The successful candidate must have a track record of federal funding from NIH or IES (e.g., NRSA, K awards for junior faculty; NIMH R34, R01, IES Goal 2 or 3 for senior), as well as a solid track record of scholarship in refereed journals.

The Center has 10 core support staff, operates a mental health clinic that had 5000 visits last year, and occupies space on the main campus with 20 testing/therapy rooms, a client waiting room, and adjacent parking for families. Position is contingent upon funding.
