Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

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 University’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

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.
