Deadline: December 31, 2023


Sponsor: University of Washington and Seattle Children's Hospital


Situated on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territory of the Duwamish and the Coast Salish peoples, the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine, University of Washington (UW), in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH), is seeking candidates for one full-time faculty member at the rank of Acting Assistant Professor. Acting Assistant Professors hold annual appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30) and may be reappointed to subsequent annual terms. Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Psychology, Education, Public Health, Health Policy and Management, or other related field.
