The Opportunity

The Department of Mathematics in the Faculty of Science at Ryerson University invites applications for a

full-time tenure-track position in Applied Statistics at the Assistant Professor level, commencing on July

1, 2019, subject to final budgetary approval.


The Department of Mathematics has 19 tenured and tenure-track faculty members. Research interests

include discrete mathematics, financial mathematics, fluid dynamics, and mathematical biology. The

department has a strong Master’s program in applied mathematics, a recently created PhD Program and

vibrant undergraduate programs in financial mathematics, and in mathematics and its applications. We

welcome you to visit http://www.math.ryerson.ca/ to learn more about our evolving department.


Responsibilities

Responsibilities will include contributing to our undergraduate and graduate programs through teaching

and student supervision. Successful candidates will also be expected to establish and maintain a strong,

independent, and externally-funded research program in applied statistics, and be engaged in the academic

life of the Department, the Faculty, and the University.


Qualifications

The successful candidate must hold both an earned PhD and postdoctoral experience in Statistics.

Candidates must hold a strong research profile (for example, evidence of an emerging scholarly record,

ability to establish and maintain an independent, externally funded research program), and show a strong

commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching and student training, and a capacity for collegial

service. Evidence of international standing and grant funding will be positive assets. Candidates must

have demonstrated a commitment and record of upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion in

their service, teaching, and scholarly, research or creative activities. Candidates will be expected to

demonstrate their ability to work with a diverse student population.


We particularly encourage applications in fields that directly complement existing research within the

department, especially in the areas of big data and machine learning. All areas focused on applied

statistics will be considered.


Equity at Ryerson University

At the intersection of mind and action, Ryerson is on a transformative path to become Canada’s leading

comprehensive innovation university. Integral to this path is the placement of equity, diversity and

inclusion as fundamental to our institutional culture. Our current academic plan outlines each as core

values and we work to embed them in all that we do.


Ryerson University welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of

equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest

sense. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage

applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized,

the Indigenous community are welcome to contact Ms. Tracey King, M.Ed., Aboriginal HR Consultant,
