Tenure-Track Appointment (Cognitive Psychology)

Department of Psychology

Huron is unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.

As the founding college of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students.  We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Our commitment to providing the best possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences.


The Department of Psychology at Huron University College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Cognitive Psychology, subject to final budgetary approval. The appointment rank will be commensurate with experience and commence July 1, 2022. Applicants with an established research background in any area of cognitive psychology will be considered. The ability to teach research design and statistics at the undergraduate level would be considered an asset.

The successful candidate will join a vibrant and tight-knit community of faculty who are committed to delivering a high-quality undergraduate experience in a small, liberal arts context. The successful candidate will be expected to teach 2.5 full undergraduate courses per year (including a share of Introductory Psychology), maintain a research program that is inclusive of undergraduate researchers, and engage in the administrative life of the department and university.


Applicants should have a completed Ph.D., evidence of excellence in undergraduate teaching and an established research record in their field. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, teaching dossier (including recent teaching evaluations), research dossier with up to three recent research publications that are representative of the applicant’s research expertise, and a list of three referees with contact information. Referees of candidates who enter the next stage of the search process will be contacted by the search committee at that time. Applications should be sent as an email attachment to: Dr. Christine Tsang, Chair, Department of Psychology, Huron University College,

Review of applications will begin January 3, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
