Pacifica Graduate Institute is seeking a depth psychologically
oriented faculty to contribute to Clinical Psychology PhD program.
Our approach to doctoral education integrates classic (e.g.,
psychoanalytic, Jungian, humanistic-existential, phenomenological)
and contemporary (e.g., critical, post-Jungian, liberation, and
relational) depth psychological theory and practice. We
embrace distinctly human sciences based research orientations to
research with human beings (i.e., qualitative, interpretive,
de-colonial), and stress integration of interdisciplinary
contributions of humanities, culture, mythology, literature and the
arts to understanding human experience. Moreover, the program
trains students to become clinicians who actively engage in
relational, contextual, and dynamic forms of therapeutic care.
We value diverse critical perspectives, methodologies, and
practices in depth psychological traditions. Applicants must show
evidence of training and experience in one or both of the following
areas: direct clinical service provision, including depth
psychological treatments and supervision; group psychotherapy and a
systems approach to development and transformation.
The successful candidate will join a community that shares a
passion for and a commitment to engaged forms of clinical work,
reflective social justice, and the development of an ethically
and politically relevant psychology. They will have
the capacity to carry out high level of human science academic
scholarship, have familiarity with academic community engagement
including participation in program administration and other forms
of institutional citizenship.
