Four Assistant Professor level and Two at the Instructor I level

The Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia 
invites applications for up to six positions--four at the Assistant 
Professor level and two at the Instructor I level. All six positions 
are tenure-track, and all are expected to start 1 July 2005.

In the case of the four Assistant Professors, we are seeking 
individuals with strong research records and a commitment to quality 
teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Applicants 
whose work bridges to other areas of interest within the department 
(e.g., cognitive development or child-clinical psychology), would be 
of additional interest.

Although these four positions are budgeted at the Assistant Professor 
level, there is a possibility of appointments at a higher rank for 
applicants with exceptional qualifications. There is also the 
possibility for one or more of these positions to be designated as 
Canada Research Chairs, either at the Full Professor level (Tier 1) 
or at the Assistant/Associate Professor level (Tier 2). These 
prestigious positions will be funded through the Federal Government 
program, with research support appropriate to the program and its 
goals. See www.chairs.gc.ca

Candidates are invited to apply in the following areas:

(a) Behavioural Neuroscience: We are seeking a faculty member who can 
add to the departmental strength in animal-based investigations in 
neurobiology of learning, motivation, and cognition. (This position 
is expected to start 1 January 2006, or earlier depending on funding.)

(b) Social/Personality Psychology: We are seeking a faculty member 
for our social/personality program, and research excellence is more 
important than particular area.

(c) Evolutionary Psychology: We are seeking a faculty member who has 
an evolutionary research focus and whose work will be widely relevant 
to different areas of psychology, including behavioural neuroscience, 
social, developmental, and cognitive.

(d) Social Neuroscience: We are seeking a faculty member whose 
research reflects a neuroscientific approach to affect, cognition, 
and social behavior.

For positions (b), (c), and (d), applicants will also be considered 
for Canada Research Chair positions. We are seeking either Tier 1 
(Senior) or Tier 2 (Junior) researchers whose work will add to 
departmental strengths.

In the case of the two Instructor I positions, we are seeking 
individuals with proven records of outstanding and innovative 
undergraduate teaching. Candidates for these positions should submit 
detailed teaching dossiers in support of their applications.

Instructor I Positions: We are seeking to fill two Instructor I 
positions. Preference will be given to those with expertise in 
teaching introductory, developmental, social, research methods and 
statistics, and/or other undergraduate psychology courses.

In all cases, salary will be commensurate with experience. The 
University of British Columbia hires on the basis of merit and is 
committed to employment equity. We encourage all qualified persons to 
apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be 
given priority. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, samples of 
their scholarly work (and teaching dossiers in the case of applicants 
for the Senior Instructorships), and three letters of recommendation, 
prior to 15 October 2004, to:

Chair, Faculty Search Committee
