Director of the Psychology Clinic in the UCLA Department of Psychology


The UCLA Department of Psychology invites applications for a full-time Director of the UCLA Psychology Clinic ( with an appointment as Adjunct Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Psychology. The Psychology Clinic is integral to UCLA’s Clinical Psychology doctoral program, which is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS). The Clinic Director is a central and important figure in our training program, providing many forms of essential support to our doctoral students throughout their development. We are seeking a colleague who has demonstrated expertise with teaching, clinical supervision, and evidence-based interventions and assessments with diverse clients and presenting problems.
Our program is guided by the Psychological Clinical Science model in which scientific and clinical training are integrated and reciprocally reinforcing, and constitute a single, broad domain of expertise and action. In this model, clinical problems shape research questions, research evidence is translated into improved practice, and practice is evaluated to ensure effectiveness (McFall, Treat & Simons, in press). We are eager to welcome candidates who are committed to building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive Clinical Psychology, by promoting sense of belonging, increasing resources, and addressing systemic inequities faced by students from historically excluded groups (Galán et al., 2021). The Director’s role is essential in ensuring that training and service delivery are approached through the lens of antiracism and cultural humility. Individuals with a history of commitment to mentoring and supervising students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
The primary responsibilities of the Clinic Director are: (a) assisting the Director of Clinical Psychology Training (DCT) and clinical program faculty in the administration and oversight of our on-campus training clinic; (b) teaching, mentoring, and supervising doctoral students in the delivery of mental health services; (c) overseeing and supervising the activities of the Associate Clinic Director and Clinic staff; (d) developing and maintaining strong professional relationships with the local and regional community to support student training; and (e) managing day-to-day operations of the Psychology Clinic. The Clinic Director is welcome to engage in research with Clinic data including routine client outcome monitoring and electronic health records, with IRB approval already in place.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from an APA and/or PCSAS accredited program, and must be licensed or license-eligible in California. Materials should be submitted online and must include: (a) cover letter, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) statement on teaching and clinical supervision, (d) statement on contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), and (e) names and contact information of three professional references. Additional information about the EDI statement is available at the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion website ( Letters of recommendation will be requested from applicants who progress to a later stage of review. Applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received and will continue until the position is closed. Candidates are urged to apply by or before October 31, 2023. Requests for information should be sent to Prof. Anna Lau, search committee chair, at
