Search committee member still sought in clinical on regionals

As I mentioned at our Department Meeting, PSS on the regionals will have two searches this year, one in experimental/i-o psychology and the other in clinical psychology. Barb Oswald asked if we could have one Oxford campus faculty member serve on each committee (in part because she’s the only psychologist who can serve on the committee because of leaves). Fortunately, Jay Smart agreed to serve on the experimental/i-o search committee (thanks Jay!), but Barb still needs someone to serve on the clinical search committee. Having Oxford faculty on this committee is important not only to help out our regional campus colleagues, but also because regional campuses offer PSY courses (and some of their students transfer to the Oxford campus), so having some voice in how PSY courses is taught is important. Below is an excerpt from the clinical ad, and she is willing to work with our faculty to schedule many meetings in Oxford rather than Hamilton. Can you reach out to Barb to let her know if you’re willing to serve in this capacity?
