The Keck School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences of the University of Southern California is soliciting applications for several new research faculty appointments at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Professor of Clinical.Â These new faculty positions will be of central importance to the exciting expansion of the Departmentâs research program and its deepening integration with our training and clinical programs. Although all applications will receive serious consideration, preference will be given to candidates who are primarily applied researchers who work either with human subjects or in highly translational preclinical paradigms. The program of research for successful applicants should have the potential to integrate with, translate to, or in some way advance the departmentâs clinical services. A demonstrable track record for collaborative, multi-disciplinary research is highly desirable.
The Department of Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences integrates science, medicine, education, psychology and behavioral health. The Department has grown substantially in recent years in its research mission, strengthened by its ongoing collaborations with local, national and international partners. It is an international leader in genomic psychiatry, translational research, health services research and the neurosciences. The Department has expanded the breadth and depth of the education programming, with innovative leaders in curriculum, evaluation, research, and teaching methodology. The Departmentâs clinical educators and clinical services are a fundamental part of the academic and training missions, in collaboration with the Keck Medical Center and Clinics, the Norris Cancer Institute, Los Angeles County + University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center, Childrenâs Hospital Los Angeles, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, Sepulveda Veteranâs Affairs Hospital and many other community partners.

Also based on the HSC are the USC School of Pharmacy and the Independent Health Professions programs. A new master plan is in the works to build 585,000 square feet of new research space, 157 graduate student housing units and a 200-room hotel, and expanding and modernizing patient care facilities. The Keck School is ideally situated in a dense urban and multicultural community to provide the kind of training necessary to meet the global health care challenges of the future. We engage with our neighbors through a spectrum of community partnerships and events that educate, nurture and care for the diverse populations we serve.
