The Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba invites applications for a full-time continuing appointment at the rank of Instructor I/II. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to teaching and clinical supervision in our CPA-accredited Clinical Psychology program, with overlapping responsibilities in our School Psychology program. This search leaves the area of expertise broadly defined, although we are especially interested in receiving applications from individuals who have expertise in areas related to the prevention, diagnosis, assessment of, and/or interventions for, psychological disorders in school-aged (3-21) children and youth. Candidates must have received a doctoral degree that included an accredited internship, and be registered, or eligible for registration, as a Clinical Psychologist and, ideally but not necessarily, also for certification as a School Psychologist in the Province of Manitoba. Applicants are expected to have clinical experience with children or youth, and preferably training in clinical supervision and experience in teaching. Responsibilities will include clinical supervision, teaching duties primarily in the clinical and school psychology programs, and service-related activities.
The Department of Psychology is the largest academic unit in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba. We have 38 faculty members, 12 support staff members, and over 130 graduate students. We boast approximately 37,000 square feet of space for offices, laboratories, and classrooms. We are a research intensive department and research facilities are housed in over 100 dedicated research rooms.
The University of Manitoba is the province's largest, most comprehensive post-secondary educational institution. More than 29,000 students from all over the world currently study in a wide range of programs in the liberal arts and sciences, the creative arts, and the professions. Research is a priority at the University of Manitoba and the success of its faculty in securing substantial research support in national and international competitions attests to this fact.
Winnipeg offers a vibrant arts community, affordable housing, diverse cultural institutions, festivals, and entertainment possibilities. Residents of Winnipeg can enjoy a multitude of parks and trails. A short trip outside of Winnipeg reveals the geographical diversity of Manitoba, with ample opportunities for many leisure activities (see http://www.tourismwinnipeg.com).
The appointment may begin on or after July 1, 2013. The starting salary and rank will reflect the qualifications and experience of the chosen candidate. The University of Manitoba encourages applications from qualified women and men, including members of visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and people of all sexual orientations and genders, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of the University.
