Job Description

College of Health
Palmerston North

We have an opportunity to appoint a vibrant and engaged colleague, Tutor/Senior Tutor to contribute to the newly created Mental Health and Addiction Major in Bachelor of Health Science within the School of Health Sciences, College of Health at Massey University.

This is a teaching role, focused on engagement and delivery of addiction practitioner skills education to a range of undergraduate students. Coordination of student placements in Mental Health and Addiction is also a key component of the role, so strong networks within the sector will be advantageous.

This is a three-year, fixed-term position which can be full-time or part-time depending on the candidates that apply. The position will start in January 2022 and can be located on our Manawatū (Palmerston North) campus. Working from the Wellington or Albany campus may be negotiated for the right candidate.

Ideal candidates will have a postgraduate qualification in mental health and addiction, be a DAPAANZ registered practitioner, and have clinical supervision experience. Clinical experience in addiction settings focused on addiction screening, assessment, brief intervention delivery and case management is essential. Academic teaching experience is preferred, but not essential.

Lived experience is a crucial component of mental health and addiction services and teaching. Candidates with self-identified lived experience are encouraged to apply. Our programmes are focused on building workforce capacity and cultural responsiveness. Candidates who whakapapa Māori or Pacific are also encouraged to apply.

The School of Health Sciences includes staff with expertise across a range of disciplines from Public Health to Biomedical Sciences which includes Environmental Health, Health Promotion, Public Health, Mental Health and Addiction, and Occupational Health and Safety.

This role provides a unique opportunity to collaborate across a range of areas with our current research and teaching portfolio covering health and social policy, Māori and Indigenous health, healthy ageing, mental health and addiction, and community health.
