Subject: [COGDEVSOC] Assistant Professor - Developmental Psychology (UofT)
To: cogdevsoc@lists.cogdevsoc.org

The Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto invites
applications for a tenure-stream appointment at the rank of Assistant
Professor in the area of developmental psychology. The appointment will
commence on July 1, 2017.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in developmental psychology or a closely
related field by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter. Evidence of
excellence in teaching and programmatic research is necessary. Evidence of
excellence in research will be demonstrated by, primarily, high-quality
research papers in leading journals in the field and presentations at
significant conferences, as well as through strong letters of reference of
high international standing. Evidence of excellence in teaching will be
demonstrated through teaching accomplishments and the teaching portfolio
(including a statement of teaching philosophy and teaching evaluations, if
available) submitted as part of the application, as well as strong
reference letters.

The appointee will join a strong group of research-oriented colleagues who
are committed to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
while conducting research at the highest level and supervising graduate
students. We invite applications from outstanding scholars in all areas of
developmental psychology, but priority will be given to candidates with
areas of expertise in infant development or very early childhood which will
bring a unique element to the developmental psychology group while
complementing existing strengths. Postdoctoral experience will be
considered an asset. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain
an active, externally-funded program of research and be committed to both
undergraduate and graduate education.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

All qualified applicants are invited to apply by visiting
http://www.hrandequity.utoronto.ca/careers/co.htm#Academic. Click on
“Faculty Opportunities” and search for Job # 1601392.

Applicants should submit a complete and current curriculum vitae, a
research statement outlining their strong and programmatic research
approach, and a teaching portfolio (including a statement of teaching
philosophy and teaching evaluations, if available). All application
materials should be submitted online. Submission guidelines can be found
at: http://uoft.me/how-to-apply.

Applicants should also ask at least three referees to send strong letters
of recommendation (signed, scanned and on letterhead) directly to the
department via e-mail to chair@psych.utoronto.ca by the review date of
December 12, 2016.

The committee will begin to consider applications as of December 12, 2016
and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Inquiries
should be directed to Professor Susanne Ferber, Chair of the Department of
Psychology (chair@psych.utoronto.ca). For more information about the
Department of Psychology, please visit our home page at
