Faculty Assistant Professor, Analytical Chemistry
The Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for a full-time, tenure stream position in the area of Analytical Chemistry, with a preference for Bio-Analytical Chemistry. UTM is one of the three University of Toronto campuses and the incumbent will also be a member of the tri-campus graduate unit, the Department of Chemistry. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, and will commence on July 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter.
Applicants must have earned a PhD in Chemistry or a related field by the time of appointment, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement existing departmental strengths in biological and protein chemistry, medicinal chemistry, biophysical chemistry, and organometallic chemistry; the ideal candidate would productively interact with the Centre for Medicinal Chemistry, a multi-disciplinary research consortium housed at UTM that will advance the methodology and practical application of medicinal chemistry.
The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent 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 a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, as well as strong endorsements from referees of high standing.
Evidence of excellence in teaching will be demonstrated by teaching accomplishments and the teaching dossier, including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations or other evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities submitted as part of the application, as well as strong endorsements by referees. Other teaching-related activities can include performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference presentations or posters.
Equity and diversity are among UTM’s core values and are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates are therefore also asked to submit a 1-2 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.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
All qualified candidates are invited to apply online by visiting the University of Toronto’s Careers website. Applicants must submit a cover letter addressing: 1) their research record, 2) research plans, 3) demonstrated opportunities for synergy with ongoing departmental research and 4) their teaching interests and plans; a current curriculum vitae; a research statement outlining current and future research interests; a teaching dossier to include a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations or evidence of superior performance in other teaching-related activities as listed above; and a diversity statement (1-2 pages).
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 once an application is submitted. Applicants, however, remain responsible for ensuring that references submit letters by the closing date.
