Please note that the education requirements have been revised.

The Department of Psychiatry in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto is seeking applicants for a limited term Professorship in Veteran Mental Health. The successful candidate must already hold, or be eligible for, a full-time clinical (MD) academic appointment within the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, U of T, preferably at the rank of Associate Professor but qualified applicants at the rank of Assistant Professor are also welcomed to apply. The term of the Chair position is five years. Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2022, or until filled. Position start date is April 1, 2022 or a mutually agreed upon date.

The University of Toronto has one of the strongest research and teaching faculties in North America and is consistently ranked as the top Canadian university in international rankings. The Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN), comprising of the University and fourteen affiliated institutes, is one of the world’s largest, most productive academic health science centres.

The University of Toronto’s Department of Psychiatry has launched efforts to improving mental health outcomes for Canada's veterans by working to address identified gaps that impact veterans’ mental health including: (1) clinicians’ unfamiliarity with military culture and lack of experience treating military trauma-related conditions, and (2) lack of research into new treatment models that address the specific needs of veterans.

The holder of this Professorship will be a doctoral level (e.g., MD of PhD) Clinician-Scientist or Clinician-Investigator who is recognized for their research activity in the area of trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and who is committed to exploring the specific mental health needs of veterans, taking into account diversity, inclusion, and various military cultures. The successful candidate will have a strong record of scholarly activity with the expectation for ongoing research and scholarship success. They will also be committed to undertaking studies that will advance understanding of military culture and sub-cultures and the epidemiology of mental illness in the military. They will also be responsible for building connections with the broader veteran community, contributing to the Department’s research and teaching strengths, dissemination of knowledge, and supervision of a Fellow in Veteran Mental Health.

The Professorship holder will report to the Labatt Family Chair of the Department of Psychiatry. The value of the Professorship will be approximately $100,000 per annum.

Applications will be evaluated by a senior panel of University of Toronto faculty in regard to the applicant’s record and relevance of scholarly activity, reputation, and expectation for ongoing academic achievement and contributions to the field.

All qualified applicants are invited to apply by sending a copy of their curriculum vitae, a two-page outline of their academic program (including scholarship productivity, training and mentorship activities, and academic prominence), and the names and contact information of three referees via email to:
