Position Details

Position Description

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine at the University of Washington is seeking several (up to four) candidates for full-time academic psychology positions which will be based at Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH). Depending upon qualifications, the positions will either be for an Assistant Professor without tenure due to funding (WOT), Associate Professor WOT, or Professor WOT (clinician teacher and faculty scientist pathways). These positions are full-time 12-month service period appointments. We anticipate the first of these position to have a start date around September 1, 2020.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is an integral component of the UW School of Medicine and it shares UW Medicine’s Mission to ‘Improve the Health of the Public.’ We strive to accomplish this by providing the best care we can today, conducting research to develop better treatments for tomorrow, and inspiring and training the next generation of health care professionals for the Pacific Northwest. Our core values include openness, transparency, integrity, engagement, collaboration, and mutual respect. We embrace and value diversity in all of its aspects. The department is the third largest department within the School of Medicine and has a $78 M operating budget. Department faculty members provide clinical services and teach at health care facilities in the Puget Sound area and at several rural locations in the WWAMI region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). The department also has a robust research portfolio nearly $35 M annually in sponsored projects. Educational programs include a required medical student clerkship for 240 medical students per year at 30 sites across the WWAMI region, a nationally competitive psychiatry residency with more than 70 psychiatry residents in Seattle and in two regional residency tracks in Idaho and Montana, subspecialty fellowships in addiction, child and adolescent, consultation-liaison, and geriatric psychiatry, a nationally renowned scientist-practitioner psychology internship program, and post-doctoral clinical and research fellowships.

Each successful candidate will serve as an attending at SCH and related clinics and will teach and supervise trainees. Seattle Children’s provides a wide continuum of programming for children in the Pacific Northwest that cover that address community based prevention. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is a focus program at SCH and receives extraordinary support for its important role in the Northwest. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.

The individuals in these positions will be expected to develop a program of research which can be focused on developmental psychopathology, prevention/intervention science, integrated care, or implementation/dissemination science.

Candidates for these positions must hold a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Psychology and be Washington State license board eligible.

In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non-U.S,) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
