Tenure-track position in Mathematical Biology

The Department of Mathematics in the Faculty of Science at Ryerson University (http://www.math.ryerson.ca/ ) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in Mathematical Biology at the Assistant Professor level, commencing on July 1, 2019, subject to final budgetary approval. Responsibilities will include contributing to our undergraduate and graduate programs through teaching and student supervision. Successful candidates will also be expected to establish and maintain a strong, independent, and externally-funded research program in mathematical biology, and be engaged in the academic life of the Department, the Faculty, and the University.

The successful candidate must hold both an earned PhD and postdoctoral or similar experience in mathematical biology or related field. Candidates must hold a strong research profile (for example, evidence of an emerging scholarly record, ability to establish and maintain an independent, externally funded research program), and show a strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching and student training, and a capacity for collegial service. Evidence of international standing and grant funding will be positive assets. Candidates must have demonstrated a commitment and record of upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion in their service, teaching, and scholarly, research or creative activities. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate their ability to work with a diverse student population. The successful candidate will have a strong research program in mathematical biology with possible specialties including, but not limited to, population dynamics, infectious diseases, ecology, computational biology, and fluid dynamics. Experience in collaborating with research hospitals or industry will be considered an asset.

Applicants are asked to submit their applications online at http://www.mathjobs.org/. Applications must include: 

● a cover letter; please also indicate your contributions to making your discipline more equitable and inclusive through committee work, community engagement, social media, or advocacy

● a current curriculum vitae describing your scholarly and professional development via your education and research activities

● a proposal describing short- and long-term research plans and past research achievements (up to 3 pages) ● electronic copies of up to three (3) recently published research papers

● a teaching statement (up to 3 pages), and a dossier of syllabi and other evidence of teaching capacity, if available. These must demonstrate how you (or how you intend to) engage, encourage, and develop the learning capacity of a diverse student population. 

Please indicate in your application if you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada. 

 Review of applications will begin December 1, 2018 , and will continue until the position is filled. We thank applicants in advance for their interest; however, only those under consideration will be contacted. Letters of reference (3) will only be requested for shortlisted applicants, and will be submitted to http://www.mathjobs.org/.
