Faculty of Science

School of Psychological Science

The School of Psychological Science is 41st in the QS World University Rankings by subject and the discipline was judged as “well above world standard” [the highest rating of 5] in all three Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) assessments in Psychology, most recently in 2015.

The School runs the well-equipped Robin Winkler Clinic which enables Clinical Psychology trainees to provide supervised, individual and group treatments for children, adults and older adults with a wide range of clinical problems.  Our clinical services focus on facilitating developments that encourage and build on the synergies between staff, research and practice (for example, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy internal placement module for training students in sleep interventions, blood-injury phobia groups).

The opportunity

The School has a unique opportunity for a passionate academic and qualified Clinical Psychologist to join our research intensive and collaborative team. You will provide a strong contribution to our postgraduate training courses in Clinical Psychology, providing teaching and clinical supervision for paediatric and/or adult individual and group interventions, depending on your expertise. 

You will join an internationally recognised group of academics and make a contribution to the research activity of the School through involvement in grant-funded research and research publications. You will also enhance the reputation and research collaboration of the School and University by assisting in the Robin Winkler Clinic and build a network of contacts with local, national and international universities and agencies.

In this position, you will be committed to high quality teaching, specialising in our Clinical Psychology training courses, and develop educational policy and curriculum within Clinical Psychology, and maintain academic standards to a world-class level. 

You will be expected to work closely with the Director of the Clinic and provide support for the effective administration and promotion of the Robin Winkler Clinic.
