Applied Behaviour Analysis, Assistant Professor - Position #32881
The Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba invites applications for a full-time Probationary (tenure-track) Assistant Professor in the area of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). The appointment has an anticipated start date of July 1, 2023, or soon after. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. We seek a colleague with an active and promising program of research in any area of Applied Behaviour Analysis. The position is offered in partnership with St.Amant and the St.Amant Research Centre.
The successful candidate will be expected to serve as a faculty member in the Department of Psychology, with duties assigned proportionately, and up to half-time as a researcher at the St.Amant Research Centre. The Centre embraces the highest standards of methodology, integrity, ethics, and social impact, and is dedicated to conducting world-class collaborative research with direct application to policy, practice, and the well-being of people with developmental disabilities, autism, or acquired brain injuries. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to development of the Research Centre toward its current goals in the areas of knowledge translation, community engagement, and education and capacity-building. Applicants who demonstrate the best academic fit with the Department of Psychology and the St.Amant Research Centre, and meet the other qualifications for the position, will be given priority.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally competitive research program, to conduct research in ABA that also aligns with the related areas of developmental disability, caregiving, or organizational behaviour in health care; attract external funding; teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in one or more delivery modes; supervise graduate and undergraduate research; and contribute to departmental service. As a baseline for determining the responsibilities of this position, the responsibilities of full-time equivalent faculty members in the Faculty of Arts are normally allocated as 40% research, 40% teaching, and 20% service, with teaching assigned in accordance with the Faculty of Arts Teaching Guideline. The normal teaching load is 12 credit hours or 4 courses per year (reduced to 9 credit hours/3 courses for new faculty in the first 2 years).
Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree in Psychology or a closely related field completed at the start date of the appointment and be (or be eligible to become) a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated evidence of successful teaching and clinical experience, and demonstrated evidence of research excellence that includes a track record of peer-reviewed publication, presentations at national and international conferences, and potential to attract external grant funding.
Successful candidates close to completion of their doctoral degree may be appointed to a term position at the rank of Lecturer until successful completion of their degree, at which time they will begin their probationary appointment as an Assistant Professor.
