For more information about the Mathematics and Engineering program, please see A candidate who joins the Mathematics and Engineering group will be expected to obtain a license as a Professional Engineer; an undergraduate degree in Engineering is a strong asset towards obtaining the license.

Research in Mathematical Biology in our department is currently centred around evolutionary biology, ecology, and infectious disease epidemiology, with particular emphasis on the use of deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems, game theory, and optimization. For more information about the Mathematical Biology program, please see The successful candidate in Mathematical Biology will be expected to work in any of these or complementary areas of research, and to contribute to both the graduate and undergraduate program.

Candidates must have a PhD or an equivalent degree completed at the start date of the appointment. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications, and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing commitment to research leadership and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs. The successful candidate will be expected to work in areas of study that complement areas already represented in the department and to work in an interdisciplinary, collaborative environment.
