The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Seattle Children's Hospital is seeking candidates for one full-time faculty position at the rank of Associate Professor without tenure by reason of funding in either the clinician-teacher or faculty-scientist pathway. Associate Professors are eligible for indefinite appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30). 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. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research/scholarship, and service.

The ambulatory psychiatry medical director will help supervise psychiatry fellows as the program increases to 8 fellows per class, will serve as the medical director for the OCD-IOP program, and provide direct patient care in additional to overall medical direction.  This role can also help supervision and provide direct patient care with general psychiatry residents, due to the expected departure of a psychiatrist in January 2024 who has been a general psychiatry resident supervisor.

Seattle Children's Hospital

Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH) is a large tertiary medical center affiliated with the University of Washington School of Medicine and serving a four-state area. Seattle Children’s provides a wide continuum of programming for children in the Pacific Northwest that address community-based care and prevention. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is a focus program at SCH and receives extraordinary support for its important role in the Northwest.

Our core values include openness, transparency, integrity, engagement, collaboration, and mutual respect. Our department is the third largest within the School of Medicine.

As the only academic psychiatry department serving Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho, we are committed to improving access to psychiatric care and consultation throughout the greater Pacific Northwest. Our educational programs include a required medical student clerkship for 260 medical students per year at some 30 sites across the WWAMI region, a nationally competitive psychiatry residency program with more than 90 psychiatry residents in Seattle and in two regional residency tracks in Idaho and Montana, subspecialty fellowships in addiction, child and adolescent, consultation-liaison, perinatal mental health and geriatric psychiatry, a nationally renowned scientist-practitioner psychology internship program, and numerous post-doctoral clinical and research fellowships.
