The integrated Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (iCASD) at the Munroe-Meyer Institute is recruiting for an assistant/associate professor to be part of a dynamic and growing interdisciplinary team of providers who are dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals with ASD and their families.

We strongly encourage and support the development of clinical research within MMI and collaboration across other academic institutions, including applying for internal and extramural funding.
All candidates should have a doctoral degree and clinical internship from an APA/CPA accredited program in Clinical or School Psychology with specialty training in autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities. Candidates should also have formal postdoctoral training in these areas and be knowledgeable about standards of care for ASD diagnostic evaluations, as well as evidence-based interventions. Research reliability with the ADOS-2 is highly preferred, but not required. Board Certified Behavioral Analyst credential is preferred, but not required. Must be license-eligible in Nebraska.
