The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and the VA Puget Sound Health Care System (VAPSHCS) are seeking candidates for one full-time faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor without tenure (WOT) by reason of funding on the clinician teacher pathway. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research/scholarship, and service. Specific duties include service as an attending psychiatrist based at VAPSHCS–Seattle, teaching and supervising trainees in conjunction with clinical and research activities, and other duties as assigned by mutual agreement.

Assistant Professors are eligible for multi-year 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. 

Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences

The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences is an integral component of the UW School of Medicine and shares UW Medicine’s mission to ‘Improve the Health of the Public.’ We accomplish this by providing the best care we can today, conducting research to develop better treatments for tomorrow, and inspiring and training the next generation of health care professionals for the Pacific 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 postdoctoral clinical and research fellowships.
