Director, Massey University Centre for Psychology

School of Psychology

College of Humanities and Social Sciences

The appointee will be a practicing Senior Psychologist with a recognised Postgraduate Clinical Psychology qualification and must either be, or be eligible to, register with the New Zealand Psychologists Board and to hold a valid Annual Practice Certificate, and be eligible for registration under the clinical scope. A minimum of eight years practice experience is required, as well as demonstrated leadership skills and management experience. Familiarity with cognitive-behaviourally orientated assessment and treatment approaches is essential. Substantial experience in provision of therapy to children and young people and the cognitive assessment of children, young people and adults would be an added advantage.

The appointee will have direct responsibility for the Centre for Psychology on the Albany campus in Auckland and maintaining clinical psychology services to clients. This will include the initiation, procurement and maintenance of research and service relationships and contracts. The clinic is a training facility and has an essential role in supporting the School's clinical psychology training programme. The role of the Director involves management of staff, the administration of the Centre as a centre of excellence, the design and implementation of clinical services to a selected range of clients, and the facilitation and management of the applied practice research. The role includes direct supervision of Clinical Psychology placement students and interns.

The Director will be able to coordinate the development of a coherent programme of research and will either develop an active research profile that complements the existing activity in the Centre for Psychology or may choose instead to focus on contributing to teaching. Collaborative research among colleagues within Massey University's multi-campus Psychology programme is encouraged.

As part of Massey University's commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi, the School of Psychology incorporates a bicultural focus into its programmes and practice.
