The Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia (http://www.psych.ubc.ca) invites applications for two tenure-track positions, which will begin 1 July 2008. Both positions are planned for the Assistant Professor level, although under exceptional circumstances a higher rank may be considered. Individuals with strong research records appropriate to a research-oriented doctoral program, and who have strong commitments and demonstrated potential to achieve excellence in teaching and research supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, are encouraged to apply in either of the following areas:

(1) Clinical Psychology. We seek a person who would enhance the Department’s APA and CPA accredited doctoral program in clinical psychology, which operates on a clinical science model. Candidates with strong research programs in any area of clinical psychology are encouraged to apply. The position involves teaching, research, and both clinical and research supervision of students. Applicants for this position are expected to have accredited clinical training (including an APA- or CPA-approved internship) and to obtain registration as a psychologist in the province of British Columbia.

(2) Health Psychology. We are seeking a faculty member to join our new doctoral program in health psychology. We will consider applications from candidates with a variety of backgrounds, including but not limited to social, biological, and clinical psychology, as well as public health. Excellent candidates with strong research programs in any area of health psychology will be given serious consideration. We have special interest in genomic approaches, life-course approaches to health and disease, social epidemiology research, and individuals who have a strong quantitative background with substantive health interests.

The starting salary for either position will be commensurate with experience. The University of British Columbia is committed to employment equity and hires on the basis of merit. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. Both positions are subject to final budgetary approval.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, samples of their scholarly work, evidence of their teaching abilities and effectiveness (course outlines, student evaluations, etc.), and at least three letters of recommendation, prior to 7 November 2007, to:
