Quantitative Methods, Assistant Professor - Position #32880
The Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba invites applications for a full-time Probationary (Tenure-track) Assistant Professor in the area of Quantitative Methods. The appointment has an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally competitive research program, attract external funding, teach undergraduate courses in quantitative methods as well as in one other major subject area, teach graduate courses in quantitative methods, supervise graduate and undergraduate research, and contribute to departmental and wider university service. Alternative delivery modes of teaching (e.g., online instruction) may be available. These duties are normally allocated as 40% research, 40% teaching, and 20% service. The normal teaching load is 12 credit hours or 4 courses per year (reduced to 9 credit hours/3 courses for new faculty in the first 2 years). Faculty members who play a lead role, usually as Principal Investigator, in a major, multi-year research project funded by SSHRC, NSERC, or CIHR and administered by the University of Manitoba will normally receive a release of 3 credit hours of teaching for each year of the grant.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Psychology completed at the start date of the appointment. Preference will be given to candidates with:
• Demonstrated evidence of research excellence in quantitative methods in psychology or a related field through a track record of peer-reviewed publications, presentations at national and international conferences, and potential to attract external grant funding;
• Demonstrated evidence of successful teaching, and/or potential for teaching excellence in quantitative methods (univariate and multivariate data analysis, research methods and design in psychological research, data science) and at least one other major subject area (e.g., social/personality, developmental, brain and cognitive sciences, abnormal psychology);
• Expertise that enhances the intellectual and methodological diversity of the Quantitative program area. Preference will be given to candidates whose area of expertise complements and extends our department's existing strengths.
Successful candidates close to completion of their doctoral degree may be appointed to a term position at the rank of Lecturer until successful completion of their degree, at which time they will begin their probationary appointment as an Assistant Professor.
