The Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto invites applications for one full-time tenure stream appointment in the area of occupational performance with musculoskeletal or neurological conditions. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2019, or shortly thereafter.

We are seeking exceptional candidates with scholarship in occupational science or occupational therapy focused on musculoskeletal or neurological conditions affecting children and youth, older adults, or populations across the lifespan. Scholarly work focusing on enabling occupational engagement and inclusion of people at risk for, or living with musculoskeletal or neurological conditions is required. The successful candidate’s scholarship will situate occupation as a key determinant of health and well-being across their program of research and creative professional activities. Research on new models of service delivery, measurement, and effective practices will complement our existing departmental strengths. 

Applicants must have a PhD in occupational science or occupational therapy, rehabilitation, social or health science, or a related field at the time of appointment; will have completed a post-doctoral fellowship or equivalent, such as a scientist role at a university or research institute, for a minimum of one year; and will be registered or eligible to register with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario.
