The Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Toronto, invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment in Statistical Science. The appointment is at the rank of Assistant Professor and will commence July 1, 2018.

We are interested in candidates from all areas of the statistical sciences that impact statistical genetics and genomics, and all other quantitative "omics" research. We are particularly interested in exceptional candidates who transcend traditional statistical research topics, who complement our existing strengths, and who are working on non-traditional areas at the cutting edge of the statistical sciences.

Applicants must have a PhD in Statistics, Biostatistics or a closely related field by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter, and must demonstrate excellence in teaching and research. Evidence of research excellence will consist of publications in top ranked and field-relevant academic journals, presentations at top conferences, research awards and accolades, and strong endorsements by referees of top international stature. Evidence for excellence in teaching is based on strong letters of reference and a teaching dossier containing a strong statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments and evaluations.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in statistical science research and education. Successful candidates are expected to pursue independent, 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 all aspects of the Department.

Salary and start-up packages are competitive with our North American peers and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants should apply online AcademicJobsOnline, academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9894, and include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, research and teaching statements, as well as a teaching dossier. Applicants should also arrange to have at least three letters of reference (on letterhead and signed) uploaded through AcademicJobsOnline directly by the writers.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2017 and applicants should endeavor to have all materials submitted by then, however applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
