The Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for a tenure-stream position at the rank of Associate Professor in the area of Robotics, to begin on July 1, 2018.
The University of Toronto is an international leader in computer science research and education. UTM is part of the tri-campus University of Toronto system, and the successful candidate will hold their appointment at the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at UTM and will also be a member of the tri-campus Graduate Department of Computer Science. UTM is embarking on an ambitious expansion to its computer science program over the next several years and in the near term is focused on building a research cluster in the area of robotics. The successful candidate will be expected to play a leadership role in building the cluster, and we anticipate additional hires in the area in the next few years. The candidate is expected to have an established innovative research record at the highest international level which they will build upon in this new position; to have demonstrated the ability 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 both undergraduate and graduate programs in the department and in particular to lead the establishment of a research presence in robotics with graduate students at the UTM campus. The position comes with substantial startup funding for the cluster, including a significant new laboratory space allocation, resulting in a unique opportunity for driven individuals with the leadership skills to build a substantial new research enterprise in a thriving metropolitan area.
We are interested in candidates in all areas of computer science that touch upon robotics in the broadest possible sense. We are especially interested in exceptional candidates who transcend traditional computing research topics and complement our existing strengths.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science or robotics or a related field, and have at least six years of academic or industry research experience post PhD. Evidence of excellence in research and teaching at the highest international level is required, as well as an excellent reputation and an established record of innovative research in the field. Excellence in research will be evidenced primarily by sustained contributions and publications in top ranked field relevant journals, awards and accolades, presentations at significant conferences, and strong reference letters by referees of top international stature. Teaching excellence will be demonstrated by awards and accolades, teaching accomplishments, teaching statement, as well as strong endorsements from referees.
Salaries will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and is competitive with our North American peers.
