Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science or mathematics or a related field by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter.
Evidence of excellence in research and teaching at the highest international levels is required.
Excellence in research will be evidenced primarily by publications in top ranked field relevant journals, awards and accolades, presentations at significant conferences, and strong reference letters by referees of top international stature. Teaching excellence will be demonstrated by awards and accolades, teaching accomplishments, as well as strong endorsements from referees.
The University of Toronto is an international leader in computer science and mathematics research and education, and the two departments have a long history of joint faculty appointments and collaborations spanning several decades. Successful candidates are expected to pursue innovative research at the highest international level; to establish a strong, externally funded independent research program; to have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching; and to contribute to the enrichment of both undergraduate and graduate programs in the two departments.
Salaries will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and is competitive with our North American peers.
