Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Position in Adult Clinical Psychology: Clinical Assessment

Job Posting Number: 
Deadline Date: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021 - 23:45

The University of Windsor’s Department of Psychology invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of Adult Clinical Psychology: Clinical Assessment, at the Assistant Professor level, commencing July 1, 2022. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

In addition to serving a large undergraduate population, the Psychology Department offers doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology and Applied Social Psychology.  Our CPA-accredited Clinical Psychology Program offers specialized training in three areas: Adult Clinical, Child Clinical, and life-span Clinical Neuropsychology. The department has the largest doctoral program on campus and an energetic and collaborative culture of scholarship and operates a state-of-the-art Psychological Services and Research Centre.  For further details, visit our website at http://www.uwindsor.ca/psychology.

Candidates will have completed a PhD in clinical psychology. Ideal candidates will have graduated from a CPA- or APA-accredited program, with pre-doctoral or post-doctoral specialty training in adult psychological assessment of intelligence, cognition, personality, and psychopathology, as well as demonstrate competence to conduct such assessments and to teach courses relevant to these areas of expertise.  If not presently registered in Ontario, successful candidates must be eligible for registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) and must initiate the registration process within the first six months of hire, as registration in Ontario is required for all clinical faculty positions. Candidates who do not come from a CPA- or APA-accredited program should demonstrate their capacity for licensure with CPO. Successful candidates will be committed to the scientist-practitioner model. Within their area of expertise, candidates will demonstrate research productivity, the capacity to develop a strong research program, and attract external research funding. They will have undergraduate teaching experience and the ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses broadly related to their area of expertise; be able to supervise undergraduate and graduate student research; contribute to the service and administrative activities of the clinical program, the Department, and the University; and provide clinical training and supervision to graduate students through on-campus practica at our Psychological Services and Research Centre (PSRC).

Candidates will demonstrate expertise in the clinical assessment of adults and must be prepared and competent to teach graduate courses in clinical assessment of adults, psychopathology, and psycho-diagnosis. Preference will be given to candidates who have expertise in comprehensive adult assessment (i.e., supervising intellectual, cognitive, personality, and diagnostic testing) for a wide range of disorders.

While priority will be given to a candidate’s interest and experience with clinical assessment, there are several secondary areas that would be advantageous. To that end, knowledge and interest in any of the following areas would be an asset: emotion research, personality disorders, addictions, health psychology/behavioural medicine, or web-based technologies (i.e., tele-health) to deliver psychological services.
