The Lecturer in Psychology and External Relationships Liaison (Level B) is an exciting opportunity to work with the leadership team to shape how we grow the mental health work force for Tasmania.

The appointee will also make a strong contribution to teaching and supervision in a range of clinical and/or educational and developmental topics at postgraduate level. The appointee will be expected to build and maintain relationships with new and existing placement providers, working with students and supervisors on external placements. They will also contribute to face-to-face, blended and online delivery of teaching within the psychology teaching programs and engage in supervision of provisional psychologists and, where appropriate, research students. This will be a teaching intensive or focused position. The position can be based on the Hobart or Launceston Campus. We will also consider fractional appointments.

  • Develop new external relationships to grow the number of opportunities for Psychology master’s students and psychological services for the Tasmanian community.
  • Collaborate closely between the Director of the University Psychology Clinic, Director of Postgraduate Professional Training Programs and external stakeholders to manage all risks associated with student placements, including reputational, health, safety, quality and sustainability risks.
  • Undertake contemporary scholarly postgraduate (and where required, undergraduate) coursework teaching of a high quality.

­What we’re looking for:

  • A PhD in Psychology or equivalent (for example, Master of Clinical and/or Educational and Developmental Psychology with practice and supervision experience).
  • Ability to develop and implement skills in scholarly and innovative approaches to university-level teaching and learning in postgraduate Psychology.
