School of Psychology

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.

We are seeking to fill an academic position for a senior clinical psychologist who is a scientist-practitioner and will contribute to, and benefit from, the strong research culture in the School. The position is on the Albany (Auckland) campus and fills a vacancy in the Clinical Psychology Training team. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from experienced Clinical Psychologists with expertise in Clinical Gero-psychology, Child and Family, and Evidenced based Psychological Interventions.

Clinical psychology training is composed of theoretical, research and clinical practicum components supported by clinical 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 a doctorate (PhD or DClinPsych) and a record of past research productivity, experience in teaching and supervision, consultant level clinical practice experience, and leadership experience. A strong candidate would be a senior clinician and would be expected to provide strong clinical and academic leadership within the programme.

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 overhead-attracting research highly desirable.

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.

Appointment will be on the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer scale according to qualifications and experience. An exceptional candidate may be considered for appointment at Associate Professor.

Enquiries of an academic nature should be directed to Associate Professor Joanne Taylor (J.E.Taylor@massey.ac.nz). Information about the School of Psychology and the University can be accessed at http://psychology.massey.ac.nz

Applications must please be submitted online.

Applications close 11.30pm Sunday, 21 February 2021.
