But applications from individuals with background in different social psychology subfields are welcome. We also value scholars who can contribute with their research and teaching to the diversity of perspectives (e.g., sociocultural, social neuroscience, evolutionary, constructivist) and methodology (e.g., quantitative and qualitative methods, community-based research, “big data” research, ecologically valid designs and measures, Indigenous methodologies, etc.) in social psychology, as well as those  who are interested in the reasonable use of transparent, reproducible, and replicable research practices. Finally, we would like a scholar who can bring the perspective from a visible minority or indigenous person to their teaching and research.

Therefore, in accordance with the university’s equity plan and pursuant to Section 42 of the BC Human Rights code, the selection for this position will be limited to members of visible minorities and Indigenous persons. Candidates must self-identify to be considered.
