We are interested in candidates from all areas of the statistical sciences that impact statistical genetics and genomics, and all other quantitative “omics” research.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in statistical science research and education. Successful candidates are expected to pursue independent, innovative research at the highest international level; to establish a strong externally funded independent research program; to have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching, and to contribute to the enrichment of all aspects of the Department.

Salary and start-up packages are competitive with our North American peers and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Job Requirements

Applicants must have a PhD in Statistics, Biostatistics or a closely related field by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter, and must demonstrate excellence in teaching and research.

Evidence of research excellence will consist of publications in top ranked and field-relevant academic journals, presentations at top conferences, research awards and accolades, and strong endorsements by referees of top international stature.

Evidence for excellence in teaching is based on strong letters of reference and a teaching dossier containing a strong statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments and evaluations.
