The University of Toronto is an international leader in Mathematics research and education. We seek exceptional candidates who would complement and broaden our existing departmental strengths.

Candidates in all areas of Applied Mathematics will be considered, including traditionally established ones, but also newly emerging fields. For example, we wish to encourage applications from specialists in computational harmonic analysis, data science, computational geometry, mathematical cryptography and mathematical biology. Successful applicants will have the chance to contribute to the further development of Applied Mathematics at the University of Toronto and also to the further expansion of our Department in that direction in the future. They may also be able to enhance their research through collaboration with institutions outside the Department of Mathematics, such as the Fields Institute.

Excellence in research will be demonstrated by a record of impactful or consistent contributions and publications in top ranked mathematics journals, presentations at significant conferences, the submitted research statement, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements by referees of top international stature. Evidence for excellence in teaching must be provided through teaching accomplishments, strong letters of reference, and the teaching dossier to include a teaching statement, sample syllabi, and teaching evaluations, submitted as part of the application.  The successful candidate will be expected to conduct an innovative, competitive, independent and externally funded research program.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Application material for the position should be submitted online through MathJobs, It should include the candidate's cover letter, curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a research statement, a teaching statement, sample syllabi, and course evaluations, the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, and at least four letters of reference (on letterhead, signed and scanned) uploaded to MathJobs directly by the writers, including at least one primarily addressing the candidate's teaching by the closing date.
