The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Medicine at the University of Washington is seeking faculty candidates to work in the vibrant and varied clinical settings associated with Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH). Depending upon qualifications, the positions will either be for Assistant Professor without tenure due to funding (WOT) (job code 0113)or Acting Assistant Professor (job code 0125). Positions are full-time 12 month service period appointments. Clinical opportunities include inpatient psychiatry, outpatient psychiatry, and Consultation Liaison psychiatry services. If hired as an acting assistant professor the position is renewable annual for up to four years. Each successful candidate will serve as an attending at SCH and related clinics and will teach and supervise trainees. .

The core values and priorities of the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Division of Child Psychiatry include providing clinical care to patients with medical illness who receive care in other departments at SCH, providing evidence-based treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, providing assessment and brief treatment for ADHD and related disorders, and providing excellent training for the next generation of mental health providers throughout the region. We are fortunate to live and work in a climate of remarkable beauty, tremendous natural and cultural resources, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a highly educated populace. In its relatively short history (established in 1945), the UW School of Medicine (SOM) has emerged as the leading public medical school in NIH research funding while simultaneously ranking as the number one rated medical school in primary care training. This is a highly unusual juxtaposition of achievements, due in large part to the energy and talent of the faculty but also because, as the one medical school serving five Northwest states, the SOM has responsibility for the health care and health care workforce needs of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho (WWAMI). The Department is pursuing a balanced commitment to knowledge discovery, teaching excellence, and high-quality clinical care by capitalizing on the resources of our vibrant academic and regional community. The Department’s research priorities are reflected in our divisions and major programs, as illustrated on our website: http://www.uwpsychiatry.org/

University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.
