Clinical Psychology Core Faculty

Pacifica Graduate Institute
Job Location:
Carpinteria, California

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.


Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology, Psychology, or related field; teaching experience; credentials that qualify for California certification as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D. or Psy.D.).
