The Department of Psychology, Faculty of Health at York University ( http://psyc.info.yorku.ca/ ) invites highly qualified Aboriginal (Indigenous) candidates to apply for a professorial-stream tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in Clinical-Developmental Psychology/Indigenous Mental Health, to commence July 1, 2021. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval.

Recognizing the underrepresentation of Aboriginal (Indigenous) faculty, this opportunity is part of the University’s Affirmative Action program that has been developed based on the special program provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code.

A PhD or a PhD near completion by the start of the appointment in Psychology is preferred; PsyD., Ed.D. or D.Phil in Psychology will also be considered. Applicants must be eligible for registration as a psychologist in the province of Ontario. We seek an Aboriginal (Indigenous) candidate who will have experience with service delivery or community-based research with Indigenous youth and their families.

We encourage applications from scientist-practitioners whose program of research is framed within an Indigenous health research perspective and who can demonstrate a commitment to serving and engaging Indigenous communities. Applicants must demonstrate expertise in Indigenous approaches to wellness and mental health in children, youth, or families. Other life stages may be considered if studied from a developmental perspective.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in outstanding, innovative, and, as appropriate, externally funded research or research creation at the highest level.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence or promise of research excellence of a recognized international calibre as demonstrated in: the research statement; a record of publications (or forthcoming publications) with significant journals in the field; presentations at major conferences; awards and accolades; and strong recommendations from referees of high standing.

The position will involve graduate teaching and supervision, as well as undergraduate teaching and the successful candidate must be suitable for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Evidence of excellence or promise of excellence in teaching will be provided through: the teaching statement; teaching accomplishments and pedagogical innovations including in high priority areas such as experiential education and technology enhanced learning; teaching evaluations; and strong letters of reference.

York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region. York University supports Indigenous research and education through its Indigenous Framework for York University , the Centre for Aboriginal Student Services, the York Aboriginal Council, and Skennen'kó:wa Gamig, or the House of Great Peace, a space for Indigenous faculty, staff, and students. York is committed to fostering understanding of, respect for and connections with Indigenous communities; and the University is working to support the recruitment and success of Indigenous undergraduate and graduate students, the integration of Indigenous cultures, approaches and perspectives into curricular offerings and research, collaboration with indigenous communities, and recruitment and retention of Indigenous faculty and staff.
