at The University of Western Australia.  A copy of the

Applications for these positions are invited from candidates
with research interests in any area of Psychology.

For one  of the Senior Lecturer posts expertise in the field
of  Organizational   Psychology  is   highly  desirable.   A
successful candidate  in  this  area  will  be  expected  to
provide   teaching    and   research    leadership,   taking
responsibility for  the Organizational  Psychology stream of
the two-year  Master of  Psychology programme.  Professional
experience is desirable. The ability to forge links with the
local  commercial  and  business  community,  and  a  strong
research   record   (evidenced   by   such   indicators   as
publications,  research   grants,  or  contract  funds)  are

Although academic  excellence will be the major criterion in
each  case,   Cognitive  Neuropsychology,  Personality,  and
Social  Psychology  are  areas  which  would  be  especially
valued. Applicants who wish to be considered for appointment
at Senior Lecturer level would be expected to possess a PhD,
have  a  strong  record  of  published  research,  and  have
substantial experience  of University  teaching.  Applicants
for a lectureship would be expected to possess a PhD, have a
promising  record  of  published  research,  and  have  some
experience of  University teaching. A record of success as a
practitioner in  a field may be considered to offset some of
the normal academic prerequisites.

research, is  one of  the largest  and most vigorous in this
thriving  university,   and  facilities   for  teaching  and
research are  excellent. Housing  costs are among the lowest
