School of Psychology
Palmerston North

Du​e to Covid-19 and the worldwide pandemic, we are currently only accepting applications from New Zealand Citizens, New Zealand Residents who are either residing in New Zealand or overseas OR applicants who hold a valid work visa and are currently living in New Zealand.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified persons for a Lectureship in Psychology. Candidates must be able to teach Psychology as a Natural Science (a compulsory course) which is the examination of basic behavioural, perceptual and cognitive processes and how these are influenced by biological mechanisms and cultural contact.

Candidates will also need to be able to teach introductory psychological research methods at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Applications from candidates who can contribute to Brain and Behaviour will also be particularly welcome.

The School has a commitment to indigenous psychologies (https://sites.massey.ac.nz/indigenouspsychologies/) and we would be particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who support that commitment.

The successful applicant will have a commitment to developing a research programme, as well as having the potential to secure overhead attracting external funding.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Psychology, with tertiary experience in teaching; independent research would be an advantage. The appointee will be expected to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to supervise Honours research reports, Master’s theses and Doctorates.

Enquiries of an academic nature should be directed to Associate Professor Ross Flett, Head of School, School of Psychology R.A.Flett@massey.ac.nz

Information about the School of Psychology and the University can be accessed via psychology.massey.ac.nz

Applications close 11.30pm Sunday, 21 February 2021.
