The applicant would join a collegial, supportive group of attending psychiatrists at MHTC and would receive weekly supervision from the MHTC Medical Director.

This recruitment is conducted at the assistant/associate rank in the health sciences clinical professor series, and the resulting hires will be at the assistant/associate rank in this series regardless of the proposed appointee's qualifications.
