Academic Diversity Enhancement Post Doctoral Fellowship Department of Psychology Texas Tech University

The Psychology Department at Texas Tech University announces the creation of a one-year (renewable for a 2nd year) post-doctoral fellowship to enhance diversity in academia. The department recognizes the importance and need for a diverse faculty in psychology departments. Thus, the goal of this fellowship is to increase the representation of individuals from historically underrepresented groups (e.g., Latinos/as, African Americans) in academia. The department is particularly interested in applicants who have research, teaching, and clinical interests related to cultural diversity and working with underserved populations. Preferred qualifications include individuals who speak Spanish and have professional experience in working with people of Mexican-origin and other diverse populations in the southwest United States. The department is particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are interested in pursuing an academic career and who show great promise as an emerging scholar with regard to research, scholarship, and teaching with a focus on historically underserved populations. The ability to communicate with multi-lingual populations is highly desirable.

The applicant should have a Ph.D. from an APA-accredited Clinical or Counseling Psychology program and have completed an APA-approved internship. ABD's will be given consideration. The post doc fellow will have a 1/1 teaching load during the academic year. In addition to teaching responsibilities, the fellow will be responsible for developing or continuing their original line of research, and there will also be an opportunity for collaborating with faculty and students. For fellows interested in getting licensed, there will be an opportunity to receive supervision from a clinical or counseling psychology faculty member for licensure hours.

In addition to a competitive salary, funds will also be available for research and travel. There will be mentoring and professional development opportunities. Depending on the person's previous commitments and placements, the start date can range from July 1st to August 15th, 2013.

The TTU Psychology Department (http://www.depts.ttu.edu/psy/) has 28 tenured and tenure-line faculty and 120 doctoral students in Clinical, Counseling (both APA‑accredited), Applied Cognitive/Cognitive, Human Factors, and Social Psychology. We have effective working relationships with the adjacent TTU Health Sciences Center (http://www.ttuhsc.edu/). Faculty research programs encompass departmental, campus, community and national/international collaborations. TTU is classified as a "research-extensive university" by the Carnegie Foundation and as a "national research university" by the State of Texas. Lubbock is located in West Texas and is a temperate, low-cost metropolitan area of over 200,000 people with a large medical community. People of Mexican-origin represent the largest ethnic minority group in Lubbock and in West Texas.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact either Dr. Christine Robitschek (Counseling Psychology program) at chris.robitschek@ttu.edu or Dr. Joaquin Borrego (Clinical Psychology program) at joaquin.borrego@ttu.edu if you have any questions about the fellowship or the department.

Counseling psychology students are once again eligible for NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, as long as their research is in an area of NSF funding.

After APA's urging, NSF reversed a decision rendering some psychology students ineligible for Graduate Research Fellowships.
By Steven Breckler

In the February, 2011 issue of Monitor on Psychology, I called attention to a major change in policy at the National Science Foundation (NSF). In the Graduate Research Fellowships competition for 2011-2012, students pursing graduate training in clinical and counseling psychology were judged as ineligible. NSF had slammed shut the door on a community of graduate students who had previously been eligible for the Fellowships.

In that column, I pointed out the logical inconsistency of NSF's new policy. In every other field of science, graduate students are judged as eligible as long as their proposed plan otherwise falls within the scope of NSF-supported fields. In 2011-2012, that was no longer so for applicants in clinical or counseling psychology. The program announcement was quite clear in stating that students in those areas, "...are ineligible even if the proposed graduate research may be classified under one of the NSF-supported fields of psychology."

We could not understand how this new language could be reconciled with the continuing assertion from NSF that the graduate research fellowships provide support for graduate study in all fields and programs of science and engineering otherwise supported by NSF. It appeared that psychology now represented a special exception. Equal, but not really equal. Valued, but not really valued.

As I promised in February, APA expressed its concern to NSF. We continued to press the agency to support psychology in the same way it supports all other fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

NSF listened. NSF has reversed its illogical change in policy. The door has been re-opened, and students in clinical or counseling psychology are once again eligible to apply.

The old exceptions and exclusions are still in place. Research and programs of study with disease-related goals are not eligible. Also excluded is support for students enrolled in practice-oriented professional degree programs. NSF has further clarified how these exceptions might apply to students in clinical and counseling programs. In particular, students pursuing training in patient-oriented research and in the study of disease-related interventions are not eligible to apply. But the all-out exclusion and the special footnotes and warnings of last year's announcement are gone from this year's announcement.

Students in clinical and counseling psychology still have a special burden to demonstrate that their proposed graduate training will focus in a field of science otherwise supported by NSF and falling within the agency's mission. But at least NSF now remains open to considering such students for support.

APA spoke, and NSF listened.

Fellowships

Institute of Technology Administrative Fellow

Position description: Administrative fellowships are to provide financial support for graduate students. The administrative fellow performs duties of a specialized nature connected with academic administration under the direction of designed members of the faculty or administrative staff. The graduate assistant will be selected from the Department of Education Psychology; Department of Education, Policy and Administration; or a related program that emphasizes the importance of assessment involving human subjects in educational paradigms. This position is supported and funded by 3M and the Institute of Technology in establishment of a 3M Scholars Program. 3M's recent gift of $300,000 will allow the Institute of Technology to develop a program that will identify the markers needed to address the retention issue in STEM fields as well as help the Institute of Technology identify a cohort of students who would significantly benefit financially, academically and professionally from a 3M Scholars Program. The objective of this program is to identify specific interventions that increase the retention of students - specifically from middle-income families - who are pursuing degrees in engineering, the physical sciences, and mathematics at the University of Minnesota. This program will target approximately 80 students from middle-income families entering the Institute of Technology as freshman in the fall 2009. Students in this first cohort will be know as "3M Scholars." 3M Scholars will be exposed to a number of experiences - also known in the literature as interventions - that are known to impact student persistence in STEM fields and their personal development, while indirectly influencing their academic achievement. These experiences will include the following categories: Individual Goals and Commitments, Academic and Study Skills, Career Exploration, Creativity and Diversity, Interaction with Faculty Outside the Classroom, Formal and Informal Social Activities, and Mentorship. Exposure to faculty, academic advisors, and industry professionals during the experiental sessions will provide the necessary tools for students to self-reflect on their academic and career plans, culminating in student-developed portfolios. While the development of portfolios is necessarily a personal journey, we will design each experience around approximately 20 students with the aim to create a small learning communities among the 3M Scholars. Our goal, through the aid of a graduate assistant, is to nucleate a culture at the Institute of Technology where student success in STEM - particularly for student from middle-income families - is systemic and self-supporting.
Responsibilities: (representative listing) The graduate assistant will identify metrics of program success during the summer of 2009, and will be involved in the program through December 2010. In addition to traditional gathering of program data, the graduate assistant will be responsible for regular individual meetings with each 3M Scholar - in essence providing critical one-on-one mentoring and guidance - to provide qualitative insight as well as quantitative data to assist in the evaluation of the program success.
Benefits: See the policy and guidelines for graduate assistants available at www.umn.edu/ohr/gao or from Graduate Assistant Employment, 200 Donhowe Building, 612-624-7070 for detailed information. Graduate assistants are eligible for a tuition benefit based on the percent time of their appointment. Non-resident graduate assistants are eligible for resident tuition if they hold at least a 25% appointment for an entire 19-week semester. The resident tuition rate can be extended beyond the time of appointment if an assistant has held such an appointment for a minimum of two academic semesters. Graduate assistants are eligible for Graduate Assistant Health Insurance if they hold at least a 25% appointment for an entire 19-week semester. The University pays a portion of the premium at a rate of twice the percentage of the appointment. Contact the Graduate Assistant Insurance Office, Boynton Health Service, 612-625-6939 for information. For information regarding parental leave, paid holidays, sick leave, vacation, and travel insurance, refer to the policy and guidelines for graduate assistants.

Academic Diversity Enhancement Post Doctoral Fellowship Department of Psychology Texas Tech University

The Psychology Department at Texas Tech University announces the creation of a one-year (renewable for a 2nd year) post-doctoral fellowship to enhance diversity in academia. The department recognizes the importance and need for a diverse faculty in psychology departments. Thus, the goal of this fellowship is to increase the representation of individuals from historically underrepresented groups (e.g., Latinos/as, African Americans) in academia. The department is particularly interested in applicants who have research, teaching, and clinical interests related to cultural diversity and working with underserved populations. Preferred qualifications include individuals who speak Spanish and have professional experience in working with people of Mexican-origin and other diverse populations in the southwest United States. The department is particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are interested in pursuing an academic career and who show great promise as an emerging scholar with regard to research, scholarship, and teaching with a focus on historically underserved populations. The ability to communicate with multi-lingual populations is highly desirable.

The applicant should have a Ph.D. from an APA-accredited Clinical or Counseling Psychology program and have completed an APA-approved internship. ABD's will be given consideration. The post doc fellow will have a 1/1 teaching load during the academic year. In addition to teaching responsibilities, the fellow will be responsible for developing or continuing their original line of research, and there will also be an opportunity for collaborating with faculty and students. For fellows interested in getting licensed, there will be an opportunity to receive supervision from a clinical or counseling psychology faculty member for licensure hours.

In addition to a competitive salary, funds will also be available for research and travel. There will be mentoring and professional development opportunities. Depending on the person's previous commitments and placements, the start date can range from July 1st to August 15th, 2013.

The TTU Psychology Department (http://www.depts.ttu.edu/psy/) has 28 tenured and tenure-line faculty and 120 doctoral students in Clinical, Counseling (both APA‑accredited), Applied Cognitive/Cognitive, Human Factors, and Social Psychology. We have effective working relationships with the adjacent TTU Health Sciences Center (http://www.ttuhsc.edu/). Faculty research programs encompass departmental, campus, community and national/international collaborations. TTU is classified as a "research-extensive university" by the Carnegie Foundation and as a "national research university" by the State of Texas. Lubbock is located in West Texas and is a temperate, low-cost metropolitan area of over 200,000 people with a large medical community. People of Mexican-origin represent the largest ethnic minority group in Lubbock and in West Texas.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact either Dr. Christine Robitschek (Counseling Psychology program) at chris.robitschek@ttu.edu or Dr. Joaquin Borrego (Clinical Psychology program) at joaquin.borrego@ttu.edu if you have any questions about the fellowship or the department.

Counseling psychology students are once again eligible for NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, as long as their research is in an area of NSF funding.

After APA's urging, NSF reversed a decision rendering some psychology students ineligible for Graduate Research Fellowships.
By Steven Breckler

In the February, 2011 issue of Monitor on Psychology, I called attention to a major change in policy at the National Science Foundation (NSF). In the Graduate Research Fellowships competition for 2011-2012, students pursing graduate training in clinical and counseling psychology were judged as ineligible. NSF had slammed shut the door on a community of graduate students who had previously been eligible for the Fellowships.

In that column, I pointed out the logical inconsistency of NSF's new policy. In every other field of science, graduate students are judged as eligible as long as their proposed plan otherwise falls within the scope of NSF-supported fields. In 2011-2012, that was no longer so for applicants in clinical or counseling psychology. The program announcement was quite clear in stating that students in those areas, "...are ineligible even if the proposed graduate research may be classified under one of the NSF-supported fields of psychology."

We could not understand how this new language could be reconciled with the continuing assertion from NSF that the graduate research fellowships provide support for graduate study in all fields and programs of science and engineering otherwise supported by NSF. It appeared that psychology now represented a special exception. Equal, but not really equal. Valued, but not really valued.

As I promised in February, APA expressed its concern to NSF. We continued to press the agency to support psychology in the same way it supports all other fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

NSF listened. NSF has reversed its illogical change in policy. The door has been re-opened, and students in clinical or counseling psychology are once again eligible to apply.

The old exceptions and exclusions are still in place. Research and programs of study with disease-related goals are not eligible. Also excluded is support for students enrolled in practice-oriented professional degree programs. NSF has further clarified how these exceptions might apply to students in clinical and counseling programs. In particular, students pursuing training in patient-oriented research and in the study of disease-related interventions are not eligible to apply. But the all-out exclusion and the special footnotes and warnings of last year's announcement are gone from this year's announcement.

Students in clinical and counseling psychology still have a special burden to demonstrate that their proposed graduate training will focus in a field of science otherwise supported by NSF and falling within the agency's mission. But at least NSF now remains open to considering such students for support.

APA spoke, and NSF listened.

Fellowships

Institute of Technology Administrative Fellow

Position description: Administrative fellowships are to provide financial support for graduate students. The administrative fellow performs duties of a specialized nature connected with academic administration under the direction of designed members of the faculty or administrative staff. The graduate assistant will be selected from the Department of Education Psychology; Department of Education, Policy and Administration; or a related program that emphasizes the importance of assessment involving human subjects in educational paradigms. This position is supported and funded by 3M and the Institute of Technology in establishment of a 3M Scholars Program. 3M's recent gift of $300,000 will allow the Institute of Technology to develop a program that will identify the markers needed to address the retention issue in STEM fields as well as help the Institute of Technology identify a cohort of students who would significantly benefit financially, academically and professionally from a 3M Scholars Program. The objective of this program is to identify specific interventions that increase the retention of students - specifically from middle-income families - who are pursuing degrees in engineering, the physical sciences, and mathematics at the University of Minnesota. This program will target approximately 80 students from middle-income families entering the Institute of Technology as freshman in the fall 2009. Students in this first cohort will be know as "3M Scholars." 3M Scholars will be exposed to a number of experiences - also known in the literature as interventions - that are known to impact student persistence in STEM fields and their personal development, while indirectly influencing their academic achievement. These experiences will include the following categories: Individual Goals and Commitments, Academic and Study Skills, Career Exploration, Creativity and Diversity, Interaction with Faculty Outside the Classroom, Formal and Informal Social Activities, and Mentorship. Exposure to faculty, academic advisors, and industry professionals during the experiental sessions will provide the necessary tools for students to self-reflect on their academic and career plans, culminating in student-developed portfolios. While the development of portfolios is necessarily a personal journey, we will design each experience around approximately 20 students with the aim to create a small learning communities among the 3M Scholars. Our goal, through the aid of a graduate assistant, is to nucleate a culture at the Institute of Technology where student success in STEM - particularly for student from middle-income families - is systemic and self-supporting.
Responsibilities: (representative listing) The graduate assistant will identify metrics of program success during the summer of 2009, and will be involved in the program through December 2010. In addition to traditional gathering of program data, the graduate assistant will be responsible for regular individual meetings with each 3M Scholar - in essence providing critical one-on-one mentoring and guidance - to provide qualitative insight as well as quantitative data to assist in the evaluation of the program success.
Benefits: See the policy and guidelines for graduate assistants available at www.umn.edu/ohr/gao or from Graduate Assistant Employment, 200 Donhowe Building, 612-624-7070 for detailed information. Graduate assistants are eligible for a tuition benefit based on the percent time of their appointment. Non-resident graduate assistants are eligible for resident tuition if they hold at least a 25% appointment for an entire 19-week semester. The resident tuition rate can be extended beyond the time of appointment if an assistant has held such an appointment for a minimum of two academic semesters. Graduate assistants are eligible for Graduate Assistant Health Insurance if they hold at least a 25% appointment for an entire 19-week semester. The University pays a portion of the premium at a rate of twice the percentage of the appointment. Contact the Graduate Assistant Insurance Office, Boynton Health Service, 612-625-6939 for information. For information regarding parental leave, paid holidays, sick leave, vacation, and travel insurance, refer to the policy and guidelines for graduate assistants.
