Announcement of New Faculty Recruitment in Concurrent Disorders

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to share that the UBC Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the UBC Institute of Mental Health (IMH), has initiated the recruitment for a full-time tenure-stream academic faculty position in the area of Concurrent Disorders, to be based at the UBC Hospital site on the Vancouver Campus. This recruitment is strongly aligned with the strategic objectives of the Department and the IMH, which include the expansion of research capacity in areas of priority and unmet societal need, such as substance use disorders, high-risk populations, and early intervention.  

The full job description may be viewed here and will also be advertised in national and international journals and job boards in the very near future. The candidate review and selection process will begin on May 1, 2023. Should you have any questions regarding this faculty career opportunity, please kindly direct them to Vicky Yau, Director, Administration, at

I look forward to sharing further news and updates with you as we move forward with this recruitment.  In the meantime, I ask that you please share this faculty career opportunity widely across your own networks and channels.
