Yukon College’s School of Liberal Arts is looking for a student-centered scholar with a commitment to Indigenization and reconciliation in education and a passion for interdisciplinary collaboration.

This position is responsible for developing and teaching Psychology courses, conducting research and scholarly activity, and engaging in institutional service. The incumbent will also be involved in the development of the College’s next independently offered degree program and will be expected to help develop curriculum to support it.

The successful candidate will have a doctorate or master’s degree in Psychology or a closely related field, with preference being given to those with a completed or near-completed PhD, and previous scholarly activity and teaching experience in Psychology. Ideally, applicants should also have experience teaching in the following contexts: to adult learners, in northern and/or remote communities, via distance-delivery technologies, and to diverse groups of International students. The ability to teach Criminology will be considered an asset.

Yukon College is committed to the values of equity, diversity and inclusion. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply; however, qualified scholars who self-identify as Yukon First Nations, other First nations, Métis, Inuit, or other Indigenous ancestry will be given priority. While we thank all candidates for their interest, only those shortlisted will be contacted.
