The Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI) seeks applications for a Clinical Psychology faculty position (open-rank) at its recently established Master’s of Science program in Psychology. We are seeking distinguished candidates working in any specialization within clinical psychology.
Founded in Doha, Qatar, the DI is a non-profit and independent institute that responds to the needs of the Arab region by integrating graduate teaching and learning with scientific research in the fields of Social Work, Psychology, Social Sciences, Humanities, Public Administration and Development Economics. It offers highly competitive compensation and benefits packages.
The mission of the Psychology program is “to train world-class academics through equipping students with a strong research foundation and the professional skills necessary to understand human behavior and to apply new knowledge, tools, and research to the solution of individual, societal, and organizational problems, particularly in Qatar and the Arab region. It also seeks to raise the level and quality of Arab scholarly contributions to the field of psychology and to prepare graduates for the unique challenges associated with today’s increasingly global, diverse, and shifting societies.”
Applicants for all positions must have (1) earned a doctorate in clinical psychology, (2) one or more years of internship and practice, (3) the capacity to teach and supervise at the graduate level, (4) published scholarly work in refereed peer-reviewed journals commensurate with his/her academic rank, and (5) a demonstrated ability to conduct research and offer services in diverse communities.

The successful applicants should be able to teach in a minimum of two core areas: neuropsychology (biological bases of psychopathology), ethics, psychopathology, clinical assessment, clinical intervention, research and statistics, as well as more specialized courses in their area of focus. In addition to research and teaching, the position includes supervision of students’ practicum work and thesis projects. Faculty are also expected to serve on committees at the program and institute level, and to contribute to the interdisciplinary scholarly community of the DI.
