UCLA Psychology Announces
Search for Staglin Family Chair in Psychology

The Department of Psychology at UCLA seeks nominations and applications for a full-time, tenured position at the level of Professor to fill the endowed Staglin Family Chair to study biological processes contributing to major mental disorders. The ideal candidate will have an innovative and productive clinical neuroscience research program, broadly defined, that employs, for example, neurodevelopmental, neuroimaging, epigenetic, or behavior-genetic approaches. The chair holder will have an appointment in the Department of Psychology and an affiliation with the clinical psychology area or any other appropriate area of the Department, as well as the opportunity for a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences. A Ph.D. in psychology or a related field such as neuroscience or an M.D. is required. The candidate should have demonstrated visionary intellectual leadership, a strong funding record, and an interest in collaborations with the larger UCLA Neuroscience community. This individual will establish and direct an endowed center, with a mission to advance the understanding and treatment of brain mechanisms contributing to major mental illness. It is anticipated that this center will build on an existing strong partnership between the Department of Psychology and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and will take advantage of the candidate’s own research expertise as well as departmental and cross-campus research strengths and collaborations.

Nominations and requests for information should be sent to the Department Chair, Prof. Gregory A. Miller (gamiller@ucla.edu).
