[Xmca-l] Academic Positions in Chile

The School of Psychology of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile invites applications for three tenure track full time faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level in the fields of Clinical Psychology; Educational Psychology and/or Developmental Psychology; and Industrial/Organizational Psychology.

The positions involve research and teaching. Applicants must demonstrate the potential to develop a line of independent and original research of international relevance. The Assistant Professors are expected to conduct teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level. The language of instruction in these programs is Spanish; therefore, candidates must demonstrate fluency in this language.

The positions are tenure-track positions and they are normed by the Reglamento Académico UC (available online or upon request.)

The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is a leading Latin American University, consistently ranked among the best universities in the region. Faculty working at the School of Psychology teaches in our undergraduate program, in one of the professional master programs offered by the school, as well as in one of three active doctoral programs of the School: in Psychology, Neurosciences and Psychotherapy. Our faculty develops basic and applied research in diverse areas of psychology and participates in a large number of international collaborations with universities across the globe. More information about the School can be found at http://psicologia.uc.cl

Applicants must hold a completed PhD in Psychology or related disciplines (Cognitive Science, Education, Administration, or others in the Social Sciences).

To ensure full consideration, please send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of research program and teaching approach (2500 words including both), and a representative publication. The documentation must be sent in PDF format to msepulvm@uc.cl until November 15th, 2014, with the subject " Concurso Academico EPUC". Candidates must specify which of the three positions they are applying for.

Additionally, applicants must have three letters of recommendation sent as a PDF to msepulvm@uc.cl indicating in the subject "Concurso Academico EPUC" and the text of the email the name of the applicant. The letters must be signed and sent from the e-mail of the recommender.

Applicants to the Clinical Psychology position must hold a professional degree in psychology, which allows the candidate to work in Chile as a licensed professional psychologist. Additionally, applicants to the Clinical Psychology position must be accredited as Psychotherapist and Supervisor by the Comisión Nacional de Psicólogos Clínicos de Chile. If the degree is not from a Chilean university, the applicant should inquire whether his or her degree might be validated in Chile. For international applicants, the committee may consider a temporary position of one year, with an extension conditional on the attainment of the Chilean license during that period
