Job Posting: Postdoc Position in Psychology at UBC

January 12, 2018

The Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position. The successful candidate will be employed to work primarily under the supervision of Dr. Sheila Woody in the Centre for Collaborative Research on Hoarding, in connection with federally funded research on hoarding.

This is a full-time, minimum 1-year position, expected to start in July 2018, with the possibility for renewal up to one additional year. Compensation for this position is $45,000 Cdn/year plus benefits for the candidate and any eligible dependents, as well as $1,200/year travel allowance to attend conferences or scholarly meetings.

The position involves two main components:

  • data analysis and writing up results for both of our lines of research, namely our work on the cognitive underpinnings of hoarding and community-based interventions for hoarding
  • administering and scoring cognitive and diagnostic assessments on a weekly basis and supervising others who administer these assessments
Applicants can be either Canadian or non-Canadian citizens. Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in Psychology or a related discipline (or expect to have completed their PhD defence prior to taking up the position). Members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code are encouraged to apply.

Applications must be sent by email to by February 15, 2018. For more information about this position and how to apply, please see the full posting on the UBC Department of Psychology website.
