Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream - Social Psychology

University of Toronto

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in social psychology or a related area by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter. Applicants must also possess a record of excellence in teaching and teaching-related scholarly activities. We seek candidates whose teaching interests compliment and strengthen our existing departmental strengths. Candidates must have teaching expertise in an undergraduate degree granting program, including lecture preparation and delivery, curriculum development, and development of online material/lectures. Additionally, candidates must possess a demonstrated commitment to excellent pedagogical practices and a demonstrated interest in teaching-related scholarly activities.

Evidence of excellence in teaching and pedagogical inquiry can be demonstrated through teaching accomplishments, awards and accolades, presentations at significant conferences, the teaching dossier submitted as part of the application including a strong teaching statement, sample syllabi and course materials, and teaching evaluations, as well as strong letters of reference from referees of high standing.
The positions involve teaching undergraduate courses primarily in social psychology, and the successful candidates will be provided with opportunities to teach courses in other areas in the department. Additional responsibilities include supervision of undergraduate research projects and departmental service.

The successful candidates will be provided with opportunities to assist the Department in providing coverage in courses in other relevant areas including statistics, research methods, social psychology, personality psychology, psychopathology, sex roles, social cognition, cross-cultural psychology, psychology and the law, health psychology, positive psychology, relationships, and environmental psychology. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants must submit a cover letter; a current curriculum vitae; and a complete teaching dossier to include a teaching statement, sample syllabi and course materials, and teaching evaluations. Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose teaching and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates are therefore also asked to submit a 1-2 page statement of contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.

Applicants must provide the name and contact information of three references. At least one reference must primarily address the candidate’s teaching. The University of Toronto’s recruiting tool will automatically solicit and collect letters of reference from each once an application is submitted. Applicants, however, remain responsible for ensuring that references submit letters (on letterhead, dated, and signed) by the closing date.
