The Department of Computer
Science and the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research at the
University of Toronto invite applications for a tenure-stream position in
Computational Biology or Bioinformatics. The appointment is at the rank of
Assistant Professor and will begin on July 1, 2013.
We seek outstanding applicants with demonstrated excellence in research at the
highest level and with the potential for excellence in undergraduate and
graduate teaching. Although we expect candidates to have a PhD and postdoctoral
training in the computational sciences (computer science, computational biology
and quantitative biology), exceptional candidates with recent or
imminently-expected PhDs will be also considered.
The Department of Computer Science is an international leader in research and
teaching, with recognized strength in most areas of computer science. The
Donnelly Centre is an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of
Toronto with the mandate to create a research environment that encourages
integration of biology, computer science, engineering and chemistry, and that
spans leading areas of biomedical research. The successful candidate will have
the opportunity to take advantage of the Universityâ€™s strengths in biology and
bioinformatics---and computational, medical and biological sciences more
broadly---and to facilitate further interaction with other units. To facilitate
such interactions, the successful candidate will hold a joint appointment in
the Department of Computer Science (51%) and in the Donnelly Centre (49%).
Salaries are competitive with our North American peers and will be determined
according to experience and qualifications. Toronto is a vibrant and
cosmopolitan city, one of the most desirable in the world in which to work and
live, and a major centre for advanced computer, medical and biological
technologies with strong ties to the University.
Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a research and teaching
statement, and the names and email addresses of at least three references.
Other supporting materials may also be included. We will not accept
applications submitted by post. If you have any questions regarding this
position, please contact Sara Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will begin on January 7, 2013 and continue until the
position is filled. To ensure full consideration applications, should be
received by February 4, 2013.
