Description:

The Department of Sociology in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for a full-time tenure stream appointment in the intersection of the areas of the social determinants of health and the sociology of race. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2022.

Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. degree in Sociology or a closely related area by the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent sociological research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence as demonstrated by their research statement, conference presentations, awards and accolades, endorsements from referees of high standing, and publication or forthcoming publication in internationally top-ranked, field-relevant, peer-reviewed journals and/or academic presses.

Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier (with required materials outlined below) submitted as part of the application, as well as strong letters of reference.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

All qualified candidates are invited to apply online by clicking on the link below. Applicants must submit a cover letter; a current curriculum vitae; a research statement outlining current and future research interests; a recent writing sample; and a teaching dossier that includes a strong teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching, and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates must therefore submit a brief (up to one page) statement of contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): research or teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.

Applicants must provide the name and contact information of three references. The University of Toronto’s recruiting tool will automatically solicit and collect letters of reference from each after an application is submitted (this happens overnight). Applicants remain responsible for ensuring that references submit letters (on letterhead, dated and signed) by the closing date.

Submission guidelines can be found at http://uoft.me/how-to-apply. Your CV and cover letter should be uploaded into the dedicated fields. Please combine additional application materials into one or two files in PDF format. If you have any questions about this position, please contact Tina Colomvakos at [email protected].

All application materials, including reference letters, must be received by January 27, 2022.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
