The Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and the St. Mary’s Hospital are currently inviting applications for a full-time position as a member of the Contract Academic Staff at the rank of Assistant Professor (Clinical). This will be a three-year, renewable appointment and does not confer eligibility for tenure.
The successful candidate will have a broad range of clinical abilities and aptitudes for working in interdisciplinary teams in our general Psychiatry Department. The applicant will also be expected to have a strong academic track record demonstrated by experience in education and/or an active research dossier.
The candidate will be appointed to clinical practice at the St. Mary’s Hospital and be expected to contribute to clinical activity in a variety of settings.
St. Mary’s Hospital Centre is a university-affiliated community hospital serving a multicultural population, and seeks to provide the highest level of safe patient and family-focused care. The Department of Psychiatry comprises both adult and geriatric psychiatry divisions, and offers second line outpatient, inpatient, ER/crisis, and consultation-liaison psychiatry services to the Cote des Neiges community, one of Montreal’s more diverse neighbourhoods, with a large immigrant and student population. Specialized mental health services are provided in partnership with first-line services offered by CLSC Cote des Neiges (CSSS Montagne). The Department of Psychiatry at St. Mary’s has a strong tradition of providing medical and interdisciplinary training to undergraduate and postgraduate medical learners, and to other allied health professionals. There are opportunities to collaborate with the hospital’s research unit, with current research projects in adult and geriatric psychiatry, as well as maternal mental health.
The department is affiliated with McGill, Canada’s most international university. Montreal offers an extremely high quality of life and is one of the most multicultural and lively cities in North America.
The successful candidate will be expected to carry out clinical activities mainly in the outpatient clinic, as well as the emergency department. In addition to patient care activities, the candidate is expected to provide excellent clinical teaching and supervision to residents and medical students, participate in hospital administrative activities, pursue scholarly activities, and make innovative contributions to the academic mission of the Department.
McGill faculty members are expected to contribute to service activities within their units, the University, and the wider scholarly community. A demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is also expected.
