Abstract

Little is known about (a) the criteria used by doctoral degree-granting psychology programs in the selection of new faculty, (b) characteristics and qualifications of successful applicants, or (c) differences between clinical and experimental specialties on these variables. The present study addresses these issues by surveying department heads (or search committees) or doctoral degree-granting psychology programs and newly hired faculty members in clinical and experimental programs. Responses were related to the faculty search, the hiring process, the variables that influenced faculty search committees' decisions, and demographic information and qualifications of newly hired faculty. Results indicate some trends in academic psychology and also point out several discrepancies in previous research. Differences between the 2 specialties are also elucidated.
