Theme

Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) is calling for applications from the fields of psychology, psychoeducation, nursing or related disciplines to award a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair for the study of the links between physiological processes (i.e. autonomous nervous system) and self-regulating capacities in children and adolescents in vulnerable contexts. The person sought must have expertise in the assessment of physiological stress processes as antecedents or consequences of adaptation difficulties among children/adolescents and their families living in vulnerable situations, and must make a significant contribution to the research program of the Centre d’études interdisciplinaires sur le développement de l’enfant et la famille [Centre for interdisciplinary studies on child and family development] (CEIDEF). The CEIDEF team carries out both fundamental and applied studies, with the goal of establishing close links between theory, research and practice in the field of family and child development. The expertise developed within the CEIDEF specifically deals with developmental psychopathology, parent-child relationships and attachment, vulnerable situations, child abuse and neglect, psychological trauma, and intervention among children and families in various types of vulnerable situations. The purpose of the Chair is to consolidate the theme of stress physiology in the development of two specific niches in the CEIDEF’s program, one being fundamental and the other one applied: 1) A better understanding of the links between the physiological, psychological, social and behavioural regulation processes among children/adolescents and families living in vulnerable situations; and 2) the inclusion of physiological measures in intervention protocols (to assess their effectiveness or as an intervention method) for vulnerable children/adolescents and families.

Canada Research Chairs

Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs are awarded after a thorough assessment process to exceptional emerging researchers. Candidates who wish to obtain a Tier 2 Chair must have held a Ph.D. for less than 10 years when they submit their application to the Canada Research Chair Program (April 22, 2019). Those who have held a Ph.D. for more than 10 years (and whose careers were interrupted because of maternity leave, parental leave or a prolonged medical leave among others) may have their eligibility examined using the Tier 2 Justification Assessment form from the Canada Research Chair Program. Please contact UQTR’s Deanship of Research and Creation to obtain more information regarding the justification process (drc@uqtr.ca).

Commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion

UQTR is determined to offer a workplace that is fair, diversified and inclusive, which is essential to the development of knowledge and innovative technology. That is why UQTR is committed to complying with federal policies regarding non-discrimination and equity in employment. The University specifically encourages women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons and persons with disabilities who have the required qualifications to present their application. Adaptation measures can also be offered to persons with disabilities according to their needs.

Application process

Those who wish to apply are invited to submit their application

before December 14, 2018.

The application must include: a curriculum vitae, a brief description of the research program that will be developed during the Chair (3 pages); several examples of significant contributions to their research field (articles with a reading committee, monographs, etc.), a letter stating how the Chair program aligns with the expertise developed within the CEIDEF and is in line with the development of its niches, as well as the names of three referees who are willing to write a letter of recommendation in their favour. The candidates may also submit with their application any statements regarding special circumstances that caused a slow-down or interruption in their research activities. UQTR will take these special circumstances into account when examining the applications. All documents required shall be submitted in a single PDF document using the online self-disclosure statement form available at: www.uqtr.ca/CRC_Declaration_volontaire.

Selection process

Each application will first be evaluated by a committee responsible for identifying applicants that adequately meet the University’s selection criteria as well as that of the Canada Research Chair Program. The applications retained will then be submitted to a committee who will ensure that UQTR’s rules and objectives regarding equity, diversity and inclusion matters have been taken into consideration. Since granting of the position is conditional to approval by the University Department, candidates will then have to submit to the hiring process for the department involved. The successful candidate will be invited to present a complete application to the Canada Research Chair Program, and successful Chair recipients will be granted a tenure-track professorial position.
