Assistant or Associate Professor WOT - UW Maternal and Child Mental Health Program

The University of Washington (Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (PBSci) is seeking candidates for a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor (without tenure) to join the UW Maternal and Child Mental Health Program.  This is a full-time, 12-month service period position with an anticipated start date in July 2020. The position rank will be determined based on the candidate’s level of experience. The candidate will spend 50% time directing the UW Fetal Alcohol and Drug Unit (FADU), with the primary role being implementation of FADU’s Parent Child Assistance Program, and 50% time on other maternal mental health projects.

The Parent‐Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is an evidence‐informed home visitation case‐management intervention for pregnant and parenting mothers who have substance use disorders. Its goals are to help mothers address their substance abuse problems, build healthy families, and prevent future births of children exposed prenatally to alcohol and drugs.

The Maternal and Child Mental Health Program aims to improve mental health during pregnancy and postpartum by making screening and evidence-based mental health and substance use disorder treatments accessible to all women in need. We do this through innovative research on new models of healthcare delivery, training and workforce development, direct clinical care and consultation, and evidence-informed advocacy.
