University of Regina: Tier II CRC in Children and the Justice System

The Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Regina invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor; the successful applicant will be nominated for a Tier II Canada Research Chair in the area of Children and the Justice System, with an expected appointment date of July 1st, 2020. The ideal candidate would develop a research program that uses the methods of experimental forensic psychology to investigate children’s experiences within the justice system. Examples of such research programs could include the development of evidence-based practices to guide how police/attorneys collect information from children; perceptions of child witnesses; or, research that advances theory in the development of memory and morality/lie-telling in children.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in psychology, or a related field. The Chair will be based in the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts. The University of Regina's Strategic Plan 2015-2020 (peyak aski kikawinaw - together we are stronger) emphasizes Social Justice and Community Safety as a strategic priority. The impact of the work carried out by our researchers in this area is felt at all levels, from first responders and police investigators to researchers and policy makers. The successful candidate’s research program will contribute to the growth and impact of this research area.

The University of Regina provides excellent institutional infrastructure to support the research program of the Chair. It houses the Collaborative Centre for Justice and Safety, which brings together researchers from Psychology, Justice Studies, Engineering, Economics, Computer Science, History, and other disciplines to carry out research that can be disseminated directly to the justice community nation-wide and internationally. The successful applicant will be able to leverage the University’s extensive network of relationships with virtually every major organization involved in justice and community safety in Saskatchewan, including the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice; Royal Canadian Mounted Police; Saskatchewan Police College; and, the Correctional Service of Canada. It is also home to the Child Trauma Research Centre (CTRC), an interdisciplinary centre developed in strategic partnership with community organizations that is designed to improve the lives of children who experience trauma.

The Faculty of Arts is home to approximately 100 full-time faculty members in fourteen departments and seven interdisciplinary programs in social sciences and humanities, and several research chairs, including the Saskatchewan Law Foundation Chair in Police Studies. The Faculty supports collaboration with community organizations through its Community Research Unit (CRU); the CRU plays a very important role in assisting researchers in mobilizing their research findings in the justice community.

The Department of Psychology offers a vibrant, diverse research environment that has yielded some of the University’s greatest research successes, including attracting nearly 54 million dollars in external funding in the last decade. The Chair will find a rich network of potential faculty collaborators with a variety of forensic research interests and will have the opportunity to contribute to our graduate programs in Experimental and Applied Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Police Studies, and Justice Studies.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible. Review of applications will begin 1 May 2019 and will continue until a CRC nominee is selected through a candidate appraisal and interview process.

University of Ottawa: Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in the Contribution of Neurocognitive Functioning to Brain Health / Chaire de recherche du Canada de niveau 2 sur la contribution du fonctionnement neurocognitif à la santé cérébrale

(Pour le français, voir ci-dessous)

A major aspect of brain health relates to the negative functional, psychological, and social consequences of brain lesions and dysfunctions. Conversely, behavioural, cognitive, psychological and social interventions can improve outcomes following brain insults. Using a variety of strategies, including animal models, cellular and molecular biology, genomics, electrophysiology, behaviour and neuroimaging, this chair will examine the interactions among the biological bases of functional neural plasticity, cognitive functioning, and brain health. The development of innovative strategies and therapeutic tools is dependent on understanding of the physical and psychological manifestations of brain diseases.

Assigned to the School of Psychology in the Faculty of Social Sciences, the chair will strengthen efforts that have been made to make uOttawa an international leader in Brain Health and will also benefit from collaborations with colleagues in the Faculty of Medicine,  in the uOttawa Brain and Mind Research Institute, the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and the Institute on Mental Health Research at the Royal Mental Health Centre.

Chaire de recherche du Canada de niveau 2 sur la contribution du fonctionnement neurocognitif à la santé cérébrale

La santé cérébrale est grandement influencée par les conséquences néfastes des lésions cérébrales et des dysfonctionnements du cerveau sur le plan fonctionnel, psychologique et social. Les interventions comportementales, cognitives, psychologiques et sociales peuvent aider à atténuer les conséquences d’une agression cérébrale. En faisant appel à un large éventail de stratégies (modèles animaux, biologie cellulaire et moléculaire, génomique, électrophysiologie, comportements et neuroimagerie), cette chaire de recherche étudiera les relations entre les fondements biologiques de la plasticité fonctionnelle du cerveau, du fonctionnement cognitif et de la santé cérébrale. La création de stratégies et d’outils thérapeutiques novateurs repose avant tout sur notre compréhension des manifestations physiques et psychologiques des maladies cérébrales.

Attribuée à l’École de psychologie de la Faculté des sciences sociales, la chaire de recherche viendra solidifier les efforts déployés par l’Université d’Ottawa pour se positionner comme un chef de file international dans le domaine de la santé cérébrale, avec le concours de collègues issus de la Faculté de médecine, de l’Institut de recherche sur le cerveau, de l’Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital d’Ottawa et de l’Institut de recherche en santé mentale du Centre de santé mentale Royal Ottawa.
