Social/Personality Psychology, Tenure-Track Assistant Professor
The Department of Psychology (Faculty of Arts) of the University of Waterloo invites applications for one full-time tenure track position at the Assistant Professor rank in Social/Personality Psychology. 

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Social/Personality Psychology or a related field and a demonstrated record of published research. Applicants will be evaluated on their potential to establish a prominent, externally funded research program, innovative methods and theoretical contributions, and to excel in teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Responsibilities will include a commitment to a strong, theory-driven research program; graduate and undergraduate teaching; supervision of graduate and undergraduate student research; and participation in Department and University service. The salary range for this position at the Assistant Professor rank is $90,000 to $120,000 per year commensurate with experience.

This is a particularly exciting time to join the Department of Psychology as we are conducting three tenure-track searches this year (Cognitive, Industrial-Organizational, and Social/Personality); the successful candidate will join a vibrant, active cohort of early career scholars. Our collaborative, inclusive research community welcomes diverse perspectives, experiences, groups of individuals, and ideas, so that all scholars can feel welcome, heard, and supported to do their best work. 

Our program embraces the values of open science and strives for reproducible research. For this goal we support transparent research with open data, open material, and pre-registrations. We also strongly value research involving diverse populations and non-traditional samples. Candidates are invited to describe their pursuit of these goals in separate sections of the statement of research interests.
