The Department of Psychology and the Department of Statistical Sciences in
the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites
applications for a joint (67% Statistical Sciences, 33% Psychology)
tenure-stream appointment. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant
Professor and will begin on July 1, 2019.

We are interested in candidates from psychology and statistical science
whose research program advances both disciplines. We are particularly
interested in scholars who demonstrate excellence in teaching and research,
who transcend traditional statistical and psychology research topics, who
complement our existing strengths (Psychology: home.psych.utoronto.ca;
Statistical Sciences: http://utstat.toronto.edu/) and who are working on
non-traditional areas at the cutting edge of both disciplines.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Statistics, or a closely
related field by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter. Excellence
in research is evidenced primarily by the quality of published or
forthcoming papers in top ranked and field-relevant academic journals,
presentations at 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, teaching
accomplishments and a teaching dossier containing a strong statement of
teaching philosophy, teaching evaluations and sample syllabi.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in psychology and
statistical science research and education. Successful candidates are
expected to conduct independent, innovative research at the highest
international level; to establish a strong externally funded independent
research program; to demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate and
graduate teaching, and to contribute to the enrichment of both Departments
by leveraging the ample opportunities for collaboration. The successful
candidate will join a vibrant intellectual community of world-class
scholars at Canada’s leading university. The Greater Toronto Area offers
amazing cultural and demographic diversity and one of the highest standards
of living in the world.

Salary to be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants should apply online via AcademicJobsOnline,
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11765 and include a curriculum
vitae, a cover letter, a list of publications, a research statement
outlining their programmatic research approach, one sample publication, and
a teaching dossier containing a strong statement of teaching philosophy,
teaching evaluations and sample syllabi. Applicants should also arrange to
have at least three strong letters of reference (on letterhead and signed)
uploaded through AcademicJobsOnline directly by the writers. Review of
applications will begin on October 20, 2018 and applicants should endeavor
to have all materials submitted by then; however, applications will be
accepted until the position is filled.
