Alberta Gambling Research Institute Chair

In partnership with Alberta Gambling Research Institute (AGRI), the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts invites applications to fill an AGRI Research Chair. This full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor will be effective July 1, 2014.

The AGRI Research Chair will generate new knowledge that will increase understanding of gambling behaviours and their consequences and will contribute to enhancing the province’s capacity to provide evidence-informed decisions regarding the development of responsible gambling policy and processes. To these ends, the goal of this Chair position will be: (1) to develop an internationally-recognized, long-term research program that will sustain and enhance provincial impact in gambling research, (2) to develop and implement effective and integrated knowledge mobilization strategies to ensure that new knowledge is transferred to key stakeholders, and (3) to actively support and promote student training and development in areas relevant to gambling research. For the first five years of the appointment, the position will have 75% protected research time.

The successful applicant will be an early career scholar and will be expected to establish a successful and externally funded program of research in gambling studies. Previous accredited clinical psychology training (including an APA- or CPA-approved internship) and being eligible for registration as a psychologist in the province of Alberta would be an asset.

The AGRI Research Chair program is intended solely for recruitment purposes and therefore tenure-track faculty members at Alberta-based institutions (prior to January 1, 2012) are NOT eligible for appointment; Alberta-based trainees (e.g. Post Doctoral Fellows, graduate students) are eligible to apply.

AGRI is a consortium of the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and the University of Lethbridge and serves to support and promote research into gambling in the province. The Institute aims to achieve international recognition in gambling-related research.
