Professor (limited term), Cognitive or Health Psychology
Job Description:
The Department of Psychology at Bishop’s University (Sherbrooke, Quebec) invites applications for a 10-month limited-term appointment position, beginning July 1, 2022. More information about Bishop’s University and the Department of Psychology can be found at

We are seeking applicants with expertise in cognitive and/or health psychology, with prior research experience falling within either of these areas. Successful candidates will possess a PhD and be serious about teaching, as appointees will be expected to teach a total of six 3-credit courses over the Fall and Winter terms. Bishop’s is expecting to conduct in-person teaching this year; nonetheless, given the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic applicants must be prepared to teach fully or partially online. The potential to provide high-quality teaching in any learning environment is therefore a factor in hiring. In addition to teaching, the ideal candidate will also have an interest in continuing to work toward furthering their research goals.

The courses that will make up the bulk of the successful applicant’s teaching load will likely be drawn from the following: Introductory Psychology I: Basic Processes, Cognition, Learning & Memory, Research Methods, Cognition & Motivation in Sports, Motivation & Emotion, Physical & Mental Health, and Health Psychology I. Other courses will be considered in accordance with the background of the candidate. Please specify in your cover letter the courses you believe you would be most qualified to teach.

Bishop’s University is located in the beautiful Eastern Townships just southeast of Montreal, on the unceded traditional lands of the Abenaki people. Meeting and working in this privileged location is a constant reminder of the need for continued conversations about the importance of decolonization and reconciliation, not just as abstract concepts, but as difficult ongoing processes to be worked on. To this end, the members of our department and community enthusiastically listen to, understand, and when appropriate contribute to the ongoing national dialogue about the complex and intersectional nature of Indigenous rights specifically and about diversity, equity, and inclusion more broadly. We value these principles for their ability to foster creativity, breadth of experience, personal growth, and a sense of belonging among our faculty, staff, and students. To this end, we seek to create an environment where candidates from diverse backgrounds can thrive and belong. Thus, we encourage members from equity-seeking groups to self-identify in their application and we will ensure equitable access for qualified persons in marginalized groups. Candidates who anticipate needing accommodation for any part of the process may contact Human Resources at [email protected]

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply although, in accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Application packages, including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching portfolio (i.e., any demonstrations of your teaching style or experience), a statement of how research, scholarly activity, or community involvement informs their teaching, and the names of two references, should be sent by email as single PDF file to Dr. Jonathan Carriere, Chair of the Department of Psychology, Bishop’s University, [email protected] Review of the applications will begin April 21, 2022 and continue until the position is filled. Only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted.
