The Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Waterloo is seeking an
exceptional scholar and researcher for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair and tenure-track position
at the rank of Assistant Professor with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2018.


The Department is looking for candidates with a Ph.D. from an accredited clinical psychology
program and an accredited internship. Candidates must be registered or eligible for registration
with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, and have a strong, theory-driven, research
investment that will be attractive to graduate students. The ability to provide clinical
supervision for child and adolescent cases will be viewed very favourably. As part of the Clinical
Psychology Program, this position will support the UW Centre for Mental Health Research
(CMHR). The CMHR combines in-house opportunities for research concerning the nature and
treatment of psychological disorders with graduate training and psychological services to the
surrounding community. Information about the Clinical Program, the CMHR, and the
Department of Psychology can be found at http://www.psychology.uwaterloo.ca.


Duties include research, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level (including
supervision of graduate clinical and research work), and service to the unit.


The successful candidate will be appointed as a regular member of the Department and will
subsequently be nominated for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. Nominations for Canada
Research Chairs (CRC) are subject to review by the CRC Secretariat and appointment as a CRC is
conditional on their approval (CRC website). The University of Waterloo is committed to
providing the candidate with the support required to secure the CRC. The successful candidate
will have a reduced teaching load during the term of the CRC.


In keeping with CRC eligibility regulations, the successful candidate will have obtained a PhD
within ten years of nomination to the CRC position and will be an outstanding emerging scholar
with a demonstrated potential to achieve a significant international reputation in the next five
to ten years. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree
and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical
training, etc. may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program's Tier 2
justification process which can be found at http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/programprogramme/nomination-mise_en_candidature-eng.aspx#s3.


The University of Waterloo

research achievement and encourages potential candidates to explain in their application the
impact this may have had on their record. Please consult the CRC website and the Office of
Research for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.


The salary range for this position at the rank of Assistant Professor is $80,000 to $120,000.
Negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates.
The closing date for applications is November 1, 2017. Applicants should electronically submit
their curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching interests,
reprints or preprints of recent papers, and reference letters from three referees addressed to
