Job Description

The Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, St. George (downtown) campus invites applications for a full-time tenure-stream faculty position in the area of Personality Psychology or Social Psychology. The appointment is at the rank of Assistant Professor and is anticipated to commence July 1, 2024.

The successful candidate will be nominated for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. In order to address systemic barriers and increase diversity in the Canada Research Chairs Program and meet government-mandated requirements, selection will be limited to candidates who identify as women and gender minorities. This recruitment process follows the provisions for special programs as described by the Ontario Human Rights Commission. This strategic recruitment is an essential component of the University’s efforts to fulfill the commitments in our institutional Canada Research Chairs Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan and to address the persistent under-representation of women and gender minorities among our cohort of Chairs. All applicants are required to self-identify as women and gender minorities in their cover letter.

Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars. Nominees should be within ten years of receiving their PhD. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. The nominee’s research area must align with the subject matter eligibility of SSHRC.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Personality Psychology or Social Psychology, or a related discipline, at the time of appointment (or shortly thereafter) with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We especially seek scholars who show evidence of advanced statistical and methodological expertise, whose research program draws on multiple perspectives within psychology and connects across sub-disciplines, and who complement our existing Departmental Strengths.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
