Discover Your Career at Emory University

Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.



The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine is seeking a full-time Addiction Psychiatrist to join its outpatient faculty. As part of a growing Addiction Psychiatry Service within Emory Healthcare and in collaboration with the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, this position will offer the opportunity to participate in clinical care and education. Based on applicant interest and need, there is flexibility in dividing clinical time between our outpatient and intensive outpatient services. Support staff for nursing needs, scheduling, and case management will be provided.


Clinical outpatient addiction care, teaching and collaboration are priorities for this position. Research or education related funds can offset the percent time for any of these activities. All faculty are encouraged to supervise residents and fellows. Proportional on-call coverage with an average of 4 weeks per year is an expected clinical responsibility with cross coverage availability for vacations and conferences. Office space will be provided at the newly built Emory Addiction Center at Emory Wesley Woods Campus, which includes on-site parking, as well as lab and urine drug screen testing. Successful candidates will work within a multidisciplinary treatment team with expertise in substance use disorder treatment. The clinic team includes nursing staff and Patient Care and Patient Service Coordinators who conduct intake scheduling and facilitate case management for patients. The position will include joint faculty appointment at Emory University School of Medicine and Emory Healthcare. A competitive benefit plan, including additional incentive pay opportunities and a favorable retirement plan, will also be provided to full-time faculty.


The rank of the appointment is open and will be commensurate with the experience and professional accomplishments of the selected applicants. Applicants should hold an unrestricted license for the state of Georgia and be board certified in Psychiatry. The candidate must be board eligible in Addiction Psychiatry. Obtaining board certification will be a requirement for retention. Consistent with the current vision and mission of the department and the division, preference will be given to applicants who have a combined and integrated interest in clinical, research, and teaching activities. Appointment at any level beyond Assistant Professor will require a successful record of external funding to support research activities, administrative experience, and an active publication record of accomplished research.


Candidates should apply on-line by submitting a letter of interest and CV
