Assistant Professor Position – Quantitative focus

The Department of Child and Youth Studies at Brock University invites applications in the area of research in children, childhood and youth for a probationary (tenure track) appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2016. The position is subject to budgetary approval.

The Department of Child and Youth Studies offers undergraduate programs (BA Pass or Honours, BA with Major, BA/BEd) that provide a broadly based interdisciplinary approach that considers theoretical and applied approaches to children and youth within the multiple contexts of culture, the economy, the law, family, school, peer group, and community. With roots in psychology, sociology, anthropology, criminology, education and cultural studies, the academic focus provides an integration of approaches through which a comprehensive understanding of children and youth can evolve. In addition, the CHYS Graduate Program (MA, PhD) offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to the study of children and youth, providing a theoretical foundation and the application of social science research methods.

related discipline is preferred. Evidence of high quality research in the area of child and youth studies with a strong quantitative focus, as well as high quality teaching is required. The successful candidate will be expected to teach methodology and statistics at undergraduate and graduate levels with a focus on advanced covariance structure modeling including longitudinal analyses.

In addition to undergraduate teaching and supervision, the successful candidate will be expected to support the Graduate program in Child and Youth Studies, and continue a successful program of research within the department’s diverse multi- and transdisciplinary ethos.
