Psychology

The Department of Psychology at Bishop’s University (Sherbrooke, Quebec) invites applications for a tenure–track position with expertise in mental health and/or clinical psychology.

The appointment will start July 1, 2018 (conditional upon confirmation of funding) and will be set at the Assistant Professor level. Applicants must have completed a PhD. As Bishop’s is primarily an undergraduate university committed to interdisciplinarity consistent with its liberal education mission, excellence in teaching is highly valued. The successful candidate should therefore demonstrate an ability to balance commitments to both teaching and research. The normal teaching load is 5 courses, some of which will be outside one’s area of expertise. Typical courses expected to be taught would be among the following: Introductory Psychology, Personality, Psychology of Gender, Multicultural Psychology, Motivation & Emotion, Psychology of Sexuality, Forensic Psychology, Family Therapy, and Group Dynamics.  Supervision of honours students is also available.

With respect to research, the successful candidate should demonstrate a research program that can be adapted to the possibilities and limitations of a small university setting. In practical terms, this means managing issues related to having limited space and working primarily with undergraduate research assistants. Since Bishop’s is a small English university situated in the heart of Quebec, community involvement is prized. Applicants should speak to how their research can be extended to the community through public events or other knowledge mobilization activities. Bilingualism, although not required, is an asset.  

Applicants should provide a letter of intent, current curriculum vitae, a statement of research achievements and future objectives, a teaching dossier outlining their pedagogical approach, evidence of teaching excellence, and at least two letters of reference.
