University of Toronto Mississauga
Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences

The Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for up to two teaching-stream appointments in Computer Science. The appointments will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, and will commence on July 1, 2020, or shortly thereafter.

We seek candidates who have a record of excellent teaching and interest in establishing a long-term teaching career with the Department. Candidates should have teaching interests that complement and enhance existing departmental strengths (see https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/math-cs-stats/home), such as existing clusters in robotics or computer security. A Master’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline by the time of the appointment is required. A Ph.D. is preferred.

Competitive candidates will have teaching expertise in a degree-granting program at the undergraduate program level; a demonstrated commitment to excellent pedagogical practices; and strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates who have developed curriculum for new and existing courses; have engaged with students both in and out of a course setting (for example, running seminars, contests, workshops, and engaging with student-run initiatives); have contributed to departmental administration (for example, through course coordination or by managing TAs); and have supervised undergraduate or graduate research projects.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

All qualified candidates are invited to apply through AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15573. Applicants must submit a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of career goals, and a teaching dossier that includes a teaching philosophy statement, course evaluations, and selected course materials. Applicants must also arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation (on letterhead, dated and signed) addressing teaching, uploaded through AcademicJobsOnline directly by the writers. The letters must be uploaded by the closing date.

All application materials, including reference letters, must be received by January 6, 2020. For enquiries, please contact Julia Martyn, Chair’s Assistant, at julia.martyn@utoronto.ca.
