The Department of Psychology within the Faculty of Arts at Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) invites applications for a faculty member who will serve as the Director of Clinical Research and Program Development for a proposed Doctor of Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program.
Reporting to the Dean of Arts, the Director will initially work together with CUE administration and government to finalize and secure the PsyD program approval from the government. Upon receiving final approval the Director’s role will involve responsibilities for PsyD course development, research training, comprehensive examinations, dissertation supervision, and teaching. We will be seeking a full Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) accreditation for the program. The Director will also work in consultation with the PsyD program Administrative Council that includes internal and external members who will support the Director’s work. Accordingly, the successful candidate will have a PsyD or PhD and internship in Clinical Psychology (accredited by CPA or American Psychological Association (APA)), with eligibility for registration as a psychologist in Alberta.
The position requires an individual with a strong research and supervision record and the capacity to work with students and colleagues to develop ongoing clinical research specialties. The Director of Clinical Research and Program Development will also be responsible for managing the clinical practice, the internship application process, and students’ clinical professional development.
CUE strives to be a community of learning grounded in scholarship and academic freedom, preparing students to be independent thinkers, ethical leaders, reflective servants in their occupations, and citizens for the common good.
CUE’s Psychology Department offers 3-year and 4-year Bachelor of Arts degrees in addition to the graduate certificate and diploma programs in psychological assessment. The proposed PsyD program will seek to enhance students’ abilities to better understand and work clinically with culturally diverse individuals and groups, particularly those who identify as a First Nation, Métis, Inuit, or another Indigenous person.
Requirements for the position include:
- A PsyD or PhD in Clinical Psychology from a CPA or APA-accredited program or equivalent
- University-level teaching experience in a clinical program; more than five years is preferred
- A demonstrated record of a strong research program, through a record of scholarly publication, grant funding, and supervision of graduate students
- Demonstrated ability to work collegially as a team leader and member
In addition, the successful candidate must assume academic administrative duties and will be committed to building professional relationships with faculty, staff, students, and the mental health community.
All applications must be sent directly to Human Resources (HR). If you have questions related to the position you may contact CUE’s Dean of Graduate Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an exciting growth opportunity for the successful candidate to make a significant contribution to our diverse students, the Department of Psychology, the community of applied psychologists in Edmonton and Alberta, and the broader community.
