Assistant Professor in Landscape Ecology

The University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM), Department of Biology, invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in Landscape Ecology at the level of Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2005. The area of specialization is open and includes all landscape applications of population biology, community and ecosystem ecology, and biogeography. Opportunities exist for collaboration with aquatic and terrestrial ecologists and evolutionary biologists in Biology at UTM and with those at the St. George (downtown) and UTSC (Scarborough) campuses. There are also opportunities to bridge the interests of biologists with physical geographers interested in environmental modeling and with chemists and physicists interested in climate change.
UTM offers a broad spectrum of programs where landscape ecology is relevant and teaching responsibilities could involve ecology courses in the Biology programs as well as in the interdisciplinary Environment program. Support at UTM includes a specialist in GIS information, on staff in the library, who can help with teaching and research materials. UTM also maintains dedicated teaching labs and a wide range of software licenses.
The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. and preferably post-doctoral experience, an outstanding academic record and evidence of potential for excellence in teaching. The appointee will be expected to build an active, externally funded and internationally recognized research program and to contribute to the education and training of undergraduate and graduate students. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The appointee will be located in the Department of Biology, University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM), and, depending on the area of expertise, will also be a member of the graduate Department of Botany or Zoology, University of Toronto.
The University of Toronto at Mississauga, with an undergraduate enrollment of 8,800 students, is one of three campuses of the University of Toronto. The campus features substantial natural areas along riparian parkland. The City of Mississauga is located on the western border of Toronto, approximately 20 km from Toronto's Civic Centre. In light of the extensive expansion (80% growth) occurring at UTM, we anticipate the addition of many new faculty positions in both Biology and Geography. New buildings are being constructed, and existing laboratory facilities are being renovated to support research in Biology and cognate disciplines.
The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2004. Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy and interests, an outline of their proposed research, and should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation sent on their behalf to: Professor Robert Baker, Chair, Department of Biology, University of Toronto at Mississauga, 3359 Mississauga Road North, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L5L 1C6.
