The Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for up to two full-time tenure stream positions in any area of computer science. The appointments will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will commence on July 1, 2023, or shortly thereafter.

 

Candidates must have earned a PhD degree in Computer Science or a related area by the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in Computer Science research and education. The successful candidates will be expected to pursue innovative research at the highest international level; to establish an outstanding, competitive and externally funded independent research program; to contribute to the enrichment of both undergraduate and graduate programs in the department; and to participate in service and leadership within the academic community.

 

Candidates must provide evidence of excellence in research which can be demonstrated by a record of contributions and publications in top-ranked field-relevant journals or conferences, or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements by referees of top international stature.

 

Candidates will also be expected to demonstrate evidence of excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels through a teaching statement highlighting previous experience that can include leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, delivering conference presentations or posters, or experience as a teaching assistant or course instructor. Excellence in teaching may also be demonstrated through materials such as sample course syllabi (either of courses delivered by the candidates or planned for the future), course evaluations, or other evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities submitted as part of the application. Professional or lived experiences that enhance the ability to teach a diverse student body are highly valued.

 

Candidates are also expected to show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment demonstrated through the application materials.
