Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology

Massey University - College of Humanities and Social Sciences - School of Psychology

We are seeking to fill an academic position for a clinical psychologist who is a scientist-practitioner and will contribute to, and benefit from, the strong research culture that has developed in the School over the past decade. The successful candidate will play a part in developing the School of Psychology's vision to be the defining Applied School of Psychology for Australasia and the South Pacific that makes a difference in individual and collective lives. The position is on the Albany (Auckland) campus in the Clinical Psychology Training team. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from Clinical Psychologists with expertise in Child and Family, Clinical Gero-psychology, Evidenced based Psychological Interventions, and/or Applied Criminal Psychology.

Clinical psychology training is composed of theoretical, research and clinical practicum components. Advanced theoretical courses and supervision of clinical and research work are supported by clinical training staff in concert with academic staff. An essential requirement is registration as a Psychologist with the New Zealand Psychologists Board, under the Clinical scope of practice (or proven eligibility for such registration if the applicant is from overseas; registered Psychologists in Australia and the United Kingdom are eligible to practice in NZ). Applicants must have an earned doctorate (PhD or DClinPsych) and, in the case of applicants for a Senior Lectureship, a record of past research productivity as defined by publications in international refereed journals, and some experience in teaching and supervision.

There are opportunities for both clinical practice and research. As a member of the teaching staff, it is expected that the successful candidate will contribute to the development of the programme in terms of curriculum revision, meeting accreditation criteria, and enhancing student learning opportunities.

A programme of independent research is of critical importance for this position, and collaboration with other staff in the School is strongly encouraged. Experienced researchers are expected to have a developed platform of research and evidence of successful completion of research supervision at masters and doctoral level, with a record of externally funded research highly desirable. New researchers will be expected to develop their research platform and experience with supervision and external funding bids. The successful candidate will also be expected to establish links with major organisations such as the local District Health Board, the Accident Compensation Corporation, or private mental health agencies, for consulting and evaluation purposes. Collaborative teaching and research among colleagues within Massey University's expanding multi-campus Psychology programmes will be a priority. Staff are required by the Head of School to teach for short periods on any campus of the University. As part of Massey University's commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi, the School of Psychology incorporates a bicultural focus into its programmes. So knowledge of and experience with Māori culture and its implications for clinical practice would be valued in this position, and we especially welcome applications from Maori Clinical psychologists.

It is expected that this position will be available early in 2018.

Appointment will be on the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer scale according to qualifications/experience.

Enquiries of an academic nature should be directed to Dr. Simon Bennett, Director of the Clinical Programme (s.t.bennett@massey.ac.nz), or Professor James Liu, Head of the School of Psychology (j.h.liu@massey.ac.nz). Information about the School of Psychology / University can be accessed at http://psychology.massey.ac.nz

Closing date: 15 February 2018
Reference number: A423-17CA
