Institution: University of Kansas
Location: Lawrence, KS
I am writing to inform you of an exciting new assistant
professor position that we have in our Clinical Psychology
Program at the University of Kansas. This is a tenure track
position to begin in the fall, 1997 semester. We are looking
for a person with expertise in psychological interventions,
broadly defined. This position will be a special one in that
it will be a named assistant professorship, honoring one of
our distinguished retired faculty members, Beatrice A.
Wright. In addition to a normal competitive beginning
salary, there will be a substantial yearly salary
supplement, and a yearly free expenditure account, as well
as a generous start-up account for the applicant's
laboratory. A copy of the advertisement that will appear in
various outlets is enclosed for your perusal. I would
appreciate it if you would inform any suitable applicants
about the position. We would particularly welcome
applications from women and persons from varied racial and
ethnic backgrounds.

Our Clinical Psychology Program provides an exceedingly
positive and stimulating atmosphere for faculty members.
The Clinical Program is held in highest esteem in the
College and the University more generally. In addition to
our regular faculty members, 40% of whom are female, we have
several part-time faculty members both here and at the
medical center in Kansas City. Further, we have a
psychological clinic that operates within the program, and a
full support staff, including two social workers, to help in
the operation of this clinic. Our graduate students are
absolutely first-rate, and a fairly high proportion of them
go on to academic careers where they have received
recognition for their teaching and research activities. In
addition to our regular training in clinical psychology, we
also offer a superb specialty training in health and
rehabilitation psychology, directed by Annette Stanton.
Additionally, under the direction of Michael Roberts, we
offer outstanding training in clinical child psychology
(indeed, this program eventually will garner independent
accreditation). The University is a progressive, fiscally
sound operation in which there are outstanding psychologist
colleagues to be found in the Department of Human
Development and Family Life, the Department of Educational
Psychology and Research, the Counseling Department, and the
Medical Center (in Kansas City). Psychologists also have
faculty positions in business, speech and communications,
education, and other places throughout the University.

The University is located on a beautiful, tree-lined campus
overlooking nearby city and countryside. Lawrence, a
delightful town of some 80,000 people, is situated in the
gently rolling hill region of eastern Kansas; there are
numerous small and large lakes nearby that offer a variety
of recreational activities. It is a very pleasant place to
live, with traditional older homes near the campus, and
newer housing toward the west. The cost of living is very
reasonable. A full range of entertainment, including art
exhibits, music, and theater are available through
University- and Lawrence-sponsored events. Further, the
Kansas University athletic teams offer entertainment to
Jayhawk fans. If you prefer the trappings of larger cities,
Kansas City is 25 miles to the east, and Topeka 25 miles to
the west.

We have put together a very attractive recruitment package
for a new or recent Ph.D., and I firmly believe that we
offer a superb arena for launching and sustaining a
productive and satisfying career in academic clinical
psychology. As you can tell, I am most enthusiastic about
the recruitment of a new Clinical faculty member. If you or
any interested potential applicants have any questions,
please feel free to write or call me at 913-864-4121, or use
email (crsnyder@kuhub.cc.ukans.edu). Thank you for your
potential help in this matter.

Yours respectfully,
C. R. Snyder
Professor and Director

Institution: State University of New York at Buffalo
Location: Buffalo, NY
The following ad appeared in the October Monitor, and I
wanted to bring it to the net's attention. The clinical
program at SUNY Buffalo has been reshaping itself for the
past few years to focus on clinical research. To an already
solid senior faculty (e.g., Tony Graziano, Murray Levine,
Sid Shrauger), the program has added four hires over the
past four years, all of whom are clinical researchers
interested in the study of validated treatments (Gayle Beck,
Len Epstein, John Roberts, and me). The program has good
working alliances with the Dept. of Psychiatry and the
Research Institute on Addictions, from which many faculty
have joint appointments in Psychology. Our program is a very
good placement for students who are looking for a department
that emphasizes clinical treatment and process research, as
well as related psychopathology, for a variety of disorders.
Please bring this ad to the attention of interested
students. Thanks.
