Assistant Professor - Developmental Psychology
Department of Psychology

University of British Columbia

Vancouver, BC Canada
The Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia – Vancouver campus (www.psych.ubc.ca) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Developmental Psychology at the rank of Assistant Professor, which will begin 1 July 2014.

We are seeking individuals with strong research records appropriate to a research-oriented doctoral program, who have strong commitments to teaching and research supervision of undergraduate and graduate students. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. before commencing the position and will be expected to maintain a program of effective teaching, departmental service, graduate and undergraduate research supervision, and scholarly research that leads to publication. Although we are looking for the strongest developmental candidate, regardless of research specialization, we are primarily interested in candidates whose work focuses on cognitive development. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research bridges cognitive development to other areas of psychology and complements existing strengths in the department (www.psych.ubc.ca/faculty/index.psy).

The starting salary for the position will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. This position is subject to final budgetary approval. Applicants should upload a single PDF file (containing a cover letter, CV, research statement, teaching statement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three publications) to https://websec1.psych.ubc.ca/internal/faculty/jobappl and complete the brief form found on that webpage. Next, applicants should arrange to have at least 3 confidential letters of recommendation submitted online (details provided at the above webpage). The closing date for applications is 1 October 2013.

The University of British Columbia hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will, however, be given priority.
