Tenure-Track Positions

1.  Clinical Neuroscience and Aging

The Department of Psychology invites applications for a full-time tenure-stream appointment at the Assistant Professor level in Adult Clinical Psychology for individuals with a particular expertise in clinical neuroscience and aging.  Our Clinical Psychology program is CPA- and APA-accredited.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in Psychology with a specialization in any aspect of clinical neuroscience and aging and a program of research investigating the neural underpinnings of the aging process from a clinical perspective using fMRI as the primary approach. An ideal candidate would have interests in healthy versus abnormal brain aging and/or neurodegenerative disorders from a lifespan perspective. Such an individual would provide a pivotal link between our clinical psychology program and the growing neuroscience group at York University as well as between the clinical psychology program and our hospital partners affiliated with the Faculty of Health.

Applicants must be registered, or eligible for registration, with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Candidates should show excellence or promise of excellence in teaching and in scholarly research and publication. The position will involve research, undergraduate teaching, as well as graduate teaching and clinical supervision of students. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to our recently developed graduate diploma in Neuroscience and work collaboratively with other faculty members engaged in neuroscience research within the departments of Psychology, Kinesiology and Health Sciences and Biology. York University has a large and expanding program in cognitive neuroscience and it recently acquired a state-of-the art fMRI facility.

A letter of application with an up-to-date curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, three reprints or preprints, three letters of reference and teaching evaluations (if available) should be sent, by December 1, 2010 to Chair, Clinical Neuroscience & Aging Search Committee, Faculty of Health, Behavioural Science Bldg., Room 296, psychair at yorku.ca.

2.  Quantitative Methods

In addition to joining the existing quantitative faculty in the department’s ‘Quantitative Methods’ area, the successful candidate will also have opportunities to collaborate with researchers in one or more of the department’s six other areas, namely ‘Brain, Behaviour and Cognitive Science’, ‘Clinical’, ‘Clinical-Developmental’, ‘Developmental and Cognitive Processes’, ‘History and Theory’, and ‘Social-Personality’.
