Clinical Psychology – Associate / Assistant Professor Competition: PSYO - 2011
The Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus, invites applications for a professorial appointment (Clinical Psychology) at the rank of Assistant Professor or, in the exceptional case, an Associate Professor to begin with a possible start date of July 1st, 2012. The position will be held in Psychology (http://www.ubc.ca/okanagan/psyo/welcome.html) in the Barber School (http://www.ubc.ca/okanagan/ikbarberschool/welcome.html).
In January 2011, we expanded our existing experimental psychology graduate program to include a masters/doctoral clinical program with a targeted implementation date of Autumn, 2013. The program has been developed to meet the requirements of CPA accreditation and acceptance by the College of Psychologists of BC. This program is based on the scientist- practitioner model and therefore is research-oriented.
We are seeking to fill a position in clinical psychology with a candidate who is registered or eligible to register as a Psychologist in the province of British Columbia. Candidates with a strong commitment to teaching and an established research program in developmental psychology or neuropsychology would best meet our program needs; however, individuals with other research interests are welcome to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to our clinical program and to graduate and undergraduate teaching and supervision.
Applicants to the rank of Associate Professor may also be considered for a limited-term, renewable, appointment as Director of Clinical Training. The Director of Clinical Training will provide leadership, guidance, direction, coordination and inspiration to students/interns, members of the training committee and other program staff on matters relating to training in professional psychology. The Director of Clinical Training assumes overall responsibility for the program. He or she provides the leadership and coordination necessary to obtain and maintain accredited status.
UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply. UBC is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. All appointments are subject to budgetary approval.
