The Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) invites applications for several full-time faculty appointments, with and expected start date of July 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter.
We especially welcome candidates who self-identify as Indigenous or those who have lived experience in Black or other racialized (persons of colour) communities. These hires arise from actions outlined in UTSC’s Strategic Plan: Inspiring Inclusive Excellence, and are coincident with a cohort of faculty searches in Historical and Cultural Studies, the Centre for Critical Development Studies, and Political Science. New colleagues will have the opportunity to be connected with previous cohorts of faculty from under-represented groups, including those hired last year in four departments spanning the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
