    Applications are invited for a faculty member who will serve in the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) program in clinical psychology at the University of Prince Edward Island. Prince Edward Island is part of the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

    The PsyD program welcomed its third cohort of students in September 2021, has applied for accreditation by the Canadian Psychological Association, and has been approved for a site visit. The program is infused with a critical lens, promoting methodological pluralism, and the integration of theory, research, and practice across individual and cultural diversities. The Department recognizes the importance of understanding individuals from their cultural, social and community contexts, and thus, is committed to training professionals who can engage helpfully with indigenous peoples and other cultures who have been neglected or suppressed. In line with this commitment, the Department of Psychology welcomed its first Elder in Residence in 2019. The program is also home to the UPEI Psychology Training Clinic which serves as the primary training facility for students in the first two years of the program before students transition to external placements in the community.

    Our aim is to graduate future clinical psychologists who are competent to:
    1) Address mental health needs of individuals, couples, families, and the larger community, particularly those whose sociodemographic position has created barriers to accessing services.
    2) Engage in high quality mental health services, including assessment, diagnosis, intervention, consultation, supervision, and research while modeling ethical decision making in their practice.
    3) Respect the culture, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, language, religion, sexuality, physical and psychological characteristics, and identity of individuals they encounter in their clinical practice.

    The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenure-stream position at the level of Assistant Professor, joining the growing clinical psychology faculty in the department. Salary will be determined according to rank and experience, as outlined in the Collective Agreement. The faculty member will work with the clinical and non-clinical faculty members of the Department of Psychology to continue to build and grow the PsyD program. The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate courses, especially in areas such as advanced intervention and assessment techniques for adults or children, and undergraduate courses which help meet the needs of the undergraduate program. Importantly, the candidate will be joining a team striving to build a renowned program to train the next generation of clinical psychologists. This is a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to make a major contribution to training clinical psychologists enabling them to excel in research and practice.

    Opportunities exist for future leadership roles in both academic aspects of the program and in clinical training at the clinic.

    We are especially interested in candidates who have expertise in one or more of the following areas: severe and persistent psychological disorders, behavioral medicine/health psychology, community psychology, cultural clinical psychology, substance use disorders, eating disorders,
    trauma-informed approaches, family systems, narrative approaches across the lifespan, or psychodynamic approaches. Ultimately, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate how they are able to meet one or more of these needs, particularly when working with marginalized populations. Finally, we would welcome a candidate with expertise in systemic models of theory and clinical practice to complement PsyD students current training, and to further develop systemic frameworks within the program. The successful candidate will be expected to build their research programs in a relevant applied area of their choosing and ideally to forge links with researchers across a broad range of disciplines at UPEI.

    Qualifications:
    Qualifications include a completed doctoral degree in Clinical or Counselling Psychology with evidence of successful teaching; a scholarly record of publications commensurate with rank; eligibility for registration with the PEI Psychologists Registration Board and then registration as a condition of employment; commitment to applied research and evidence of a productive research trajectory (e.g., publications, funding).

    Application Instructions:
    Interested candidates are invited to forward a cover letter detailing their suitability for a position, a curriculum vitae, teaching dossier, and description of scholarly contributions with links to key documents. In addition, interested parties will arrange to have forwarded three letters of reference which speak specifically to their match with this position to:

    Department of Psychology, University of Prince Edward Island

    psychadmin@upei.ca

    UPEI is committed to equity, diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation, and believes in providing a positive learning and working environment where every person feels empowered to contribute.

    In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. UPEI is committed to the principle of equity in employment.

    UPEI will require mandatory full Covid 19 vaccination for all students, staff, and faculty. Exemptions only apply for medical, religious, or cultural reasons in accordance with the UPEI Covid 19 mandatory vaccination policy.
