Alternative delivery modes of teaching (e.g. online instruction) may be available. The standard weighting of responsibilities for full-time equivalent faculty members in the Faculty of Arts is 40% research, 40% teaching, and 20% service. The normal teaching load is 12 credit hours or 4 courses per year (reduced to 9 credit hours/3 courses for new faculty in the first 2 years). Clinical Psychology faculty members will normally be assigned 1.5 credit hours of teaching release per practicum supervised. Faculty members who play a lead role, usually as Principal Investigator, in a major, multi-year research project funded by SSHRC, NSERC or CIHR administered by the University of Manitoba will normally receive a release of three credit hours of teaching for each year of the grant.


Candidates should have completed a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree by the time of appointment from a CPA- or APA- accredited psychology program with an approved internship.

Successful candidates close to completion of their doctoral degree may be appointed to a term position at the rank of Lecturer until successful completion of their degree, at which time they will begin their probationary appointment as an Assistant Professor.

Applicants are expected to have demonstrated excellence in research in any area of clinical psychology, broadly defined, with a track record of peer-reviewed publication, presentations at national and international conferences, and the potential to attract external grant funding. The successful candidate will also have demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and clinical supervision. All areas of clinically-relevant research will be considered, however, priority will be given to applicants with a focus in child and adolescent psychology, neuropsychology, substance use, and/or mental health in marginalized populations, or other areas that diversify the existing strengths of our department. Evidence of work with diverse populations is an asset.
