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 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 position is on the Wellington campus and fills a vacancy in the Clinical Psychology Training team. We are seeking applications from candidates with clinical and research expertise in the areas of child, adolescent, and family clinician psychology. Candidates with other areas of expertise are also encouraged to submit an application.

An essential requirement is registration as a Psychologist with the Psychologists Board, under the Clinical scope of practice (or proven eligibility for such registration if the applicant is from overseas). 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.

There is the expectation that the successful candidate will maintain a small caseload at the Wellington Psychology Clinic.

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.

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.

Appointment will be on the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer scale according to qualifications and experience of the successful applicant.

Enquiries of an academic nature should be directed to Associate Professor Ross Flett, Head of the 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 must please be submitted online.
