The ability to teach at an advanced undergraduate level or introductory graduate level – for example, topics in multiple regression or basic multivariate techniques – is required. Additional responsibilities will include mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students conducting independent research projects. As such, previous experience in a consulting/collaborating role is desirable.

Review of applications will begin March 25, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit the following material 1) cover letter; 2) curriculum vitae; 3) a teaching portfolio including a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching excellence, and course syllabi if available; all materials should be uploaded to http://MathJobs.Org through (Position ID: McGill-PSYSTAT) . 4) Applicants should also arrange for three confidential letters of recommendation to be uploaded, again on the Mathjobs site.
