The position of Kaupapa Māori Lecturer is available in the School of Psychology, College of Humanities and Social Sciences. If you have a PhD in Psychology (or are extremely close to PhD completion), if you have taught at the tertiary level, researched or published about psychology from a Māori perspective, we welcome you to apply.

The purpose of this position is to develop and disseminate knowledge, ideas and theories in the area of indigenous psychology with a specific focus on mātauranga Māori. The successful candidate will play a part in developing Massey's School of Psychology vision to be the defining Applied School of Psychology for Australasia and the South Pacific; that makes a difference in individual and collective lives. The appointee will have an interest in and expertise suitable for teaching and research in Māori and indigenous psychology, and relating this to other perspectives in psychology.

The appointee will have a commitment to developing a research programme that complements the research strengths of the School of Psychology and is manageable within the resources available, as well as having the potential to attract external funding. It is strongly advised that applicants familiarise themselves with the School of Psychology by examining its online profile. Applicants should be aware that teaching in the School includes both online and kānohi ki te kānohi (face to face) delivery modes.

Collaborative teaching and research on School of Psychology programmes offered across our campuses will be a priority. Staff may be required by the Head of School to teach for short periods on any campus of the University.

The School offers degree programmes to doctoral level in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and in the College of Science. As part of Massey University's obligation to Te Tiriti o Waitangi , the School of Psychology is committed to incorporating mātauranga Māori into its programmes.

We seek a teacher who will inspire all undergraduate students, but particularly Māori students, to continue on to graduate study, and provide inspiration and nurturance to those they supervise at the graduate level, facilitating their growth into skilled researchers.

It is expected that this position will be available from March 2018. Appointment will be on the Lecturer scale at a competitive level relative to qualifications and experience.
