Assistant Professor, Psychology

Athabasca University

The Psychology Program in Athabasca University’s Centre for Social Sciences in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2019.

This is a full-time position located in Alberta. Athabasca University is a fully-accredited, post-secondary institution with a commitment to facilitating open access to education. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Psychology, or a closely related discipline, and will complement our current faculty’s expertise across a range of foundational areas in psychology.

We are seeking a candidate with an active research program in one or more of the following areas: computational modelling, applied psychology, and health and wellness but excluding mental health professional practice such as counselling. However, we would also consider strong candidates with other areas of specialization.

The candidate will be part of a highly collegial and motivated team committed to reducing barriers that restrict access to, and success in, psychology education. This will involve program coordination duties and related tasks appropriate to the maintenance and growth of a baccalaureate degree program. The candidate will be expected to develop new courses as determined by the needs of the program and their research interests as well as coordinate and revise existing courses in the program. Evidence of teaching excellence at the undergraduate level is required, and familiarity with online systems of course delivery, educational technologies, and distance education is preferred.

When applying, please include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, the names of three referees, writing sample (ideally of published writing), and evidence of teaching effectiveness (ideally, a teaching dossier including a teaching statement, evaluations if available, and a sample syllabus).
