Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Addictions and Mental Health

Based in the Department of Psychology at Ryerson University, the successful candidate will have an internationally recognized program of research in addictions with an interest in social and health disparities. The Chair will demonstrate a commitment to generating knowledge that informs translatable, evidence-based solutions to one of Canada’s (and the world’s) most urgent public health problems. This CRC would also catalyze the Ryerson University Strategic Research Plan (2020-25) thematic priority of Justice, Equity, and Society, given the documented health and socioeconomic disparities of those with addiction, and the potential for this line of inquiry to inform fair, effective, and socially just policies related to addiction services.

Contingent upon the success of the CRC application, the candidate will be appointed to a tenure-track position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. The CRC appointment is tenable for seven years and renewable once.
