The Department of Economics at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for up to two full-time tenure stream positions in Economics. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024.

 

Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. degree in Economics or in a related area with a focus in Economics by the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. While other candidates will be considered, we have a special interest for those who specialize in Financial Economics, International Trade, or Macroeconomics. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research, and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program. The successful applicant will teach undergraduate courses in the Department of Economics at the University of Toronto Mississauga and will also become a full member of the Graduate Department of Economics of the University of Toronto, undertaking graduate teaching and supervision of doctoral students at the St. George campus.

 

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence which can be demonstrated by an innovative job market paper with a significant contribution to the literature, strong endorsements from referees of high standing, the submitted research statement, high quality working papers, a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades.

 

Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier (with required materials outlined below) submitted as part of the application, or other evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities submitted as part of the application, as well as strong letters of reference. Other teaching-related activities can include performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference presentations or posters.

 

At UTM we are committed to fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. With an enviable diverse student body, we especially welcome applications from candidates who identify as Indigenous, Black, or racially visible (persons of colour), and who have experience working with teaching or mentoring diverse groups or students. Candidates must demonstrate, in their application materials, an ability to foster diversity on campus and within the curriculum or discipline, and must show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial environment. Candidates must submit a statement describing their contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities; efforts undertaken to develop inclusive pedagogies, collaboration, and engagement with underrepresented communities; and mentoring of students from underrepresented groups. If you have questions about this statement, please contact Professor Rahul Deb at recruiting@economics.utoronto.ca.

 

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
