The University of Washington (UW) Tacoma invites applications for a non-tenure track full-time or part-time temporary lecturer of Psychology in the division of Social, Behavioral and Human Sciences within the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (SIAS). This is a full time temporary position with a 9-month service period (September 15-June 15) or part time temporary positions with quarterly (September 16-December 15 for autumn quarter, December 16-March 15 for Winter, of March 16-June 15 for Spring quarter) service periods to teach 7 sections of clinical psychology courses.

The courses must include TPSYCH 210 Abnormal Psychology, TPSYCH 310 Controversies in Clinical Psychology, and TPSYCH 311 Personality Theories. Other courses may include TPSYCH 312 Mental Illness Across Cultures and TPSYCH 313 Personality Disorders, and may depend on the candidate’s areas of expertise. The appointment is contingent upon adequate enrollment.

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was founded in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds in the South Puget Sound. Faculty have access to the resources of the University of Washington, a major research university, including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a supportive environment for the development of creative teaching, research, and community collaborations. The campus commitment to equity and inclusion is central to maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal, and professional growth within our campus and broader community.
