The Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for a joint tenure-stream appointment in the Department of Computer Science (51%) and the School of the Environment (49%) in the area of Sustainability and Climate Informatics. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will begin on July 1, 2018.
We are interested in candidates who conduct research in all areas of computer science and environmental sciences that touch upon sustainability and climate informatics in the broadest possible sense. We are especially interested in exceptional candidates who transcend traditional computing and environmental science disciplines and complement our existing strengths in the Department of Computer Science and the interdisciplinary focus of the School of the Environment. We encourage applicants to review both academic units' research and teaching activities prior to applying.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer science or environmental sciences 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 environmental sciences research and education. 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, including the development of a new Masters' program in environment and sustainability.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and is competitive with our North American peers.
Applicants should apply online through AcademicJobsOnline, and include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and research and teaching statements. 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 after November 30, 2017 but the position will remain open until filled.
