Concordia University (Montreal) has a new, tenure-track faculty position opening. This position is for a Canada Research Chair Tier 2 award (emerging; <10yr post degree). The ideal candidate will be a child clinical psychologist with expertise in child, adolescent, developmental, or pediatric psychology. The candidate will have extraordinary competence in the creation and implementation of empirical, state-of-the-art interventions for youth mental health, and related issues. Health issues may include intellectual disabilities, communication disorders, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, first episode psychosis, feeding/eating disorders, elimination disorders, headache, sleep-wake disorders, among others. Intervention is broadly defined, including child- or parent-focused psychological treatments, behavioural interventions, or school-based programs. The candidate is expected to have the ability to establish a strong clinical intervention research program supporting which treatment(s) work best, the underlying mechanisms, and how interventions can be adapted to facilitate their widespread dissemination and uptake. The candidate will create and lead research in the development of early interventions to reduce the lifelong burden of youth mental health problems.
Subject to budgetary approval, we anticipate filling this position for Summer 2020. Aligned with the accelerated timeline of the Canada Research Chairs program, review of complete applications will begin August 15, 2019 and will continue until the position has been filled.
