Hi All:

We are beginning a search for two Assistant Professor positions in 
Computational Genomics: one with an emphasis on epigenomics and the 
other focuses on evolution.   The advertisements are appended in line 
below.  Thank you for sharing this with others of your group/institution.

POSITION 1: EVOLUTIONARY GENOMICS

The Department of Biological Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough 
invites
applications for a tenure-stream appointment in the area of 
Computational Genomics,
Evolutionary Genomics. The appointment is at the rank of Assistant 
Professor and will
commence on July 1, 2019 or shortly thereafter.

Candidates must have a PhD in biological or computational sciences, and 
at least one
year of postdoctoral experience relevant to the position. The successful 
candidate will
be expected to conduct innovative and independent research at the highest
international level and to establish an outstanding, externally funded 
research program.
Applicants must have a record of excellence in research, as demonstrated by
publications in top ranked and field relevant academic journals, the 
submitted research
statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and 
accolades for work in
the field, and strong endorsements by referees of high international 
standing.

Candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to excellence in 
undergraduate and
graduate student training and supervision. A commitment to excellence in 
teaching will
be demonstrated through the statement of teaching philosophy, teaching
accomplishments, and evidence of superior performance in 
teaching-related activities
documented in the teaching materials submitted as part of the 
application (including
performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience 
leading successful
workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference 
posters or
presentations), as well as strong letters of reference.

We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and
strengthen our existing departmental strengths. The successful candidate 
will apply
computational approaches to genome-wide datasets to address fundamental 
questions
in ecology and evolution, including topics such as phylogenomics, 
population genomics,
conservation genomics, or behaviour genomics. They will make use of the 
University of
Toronto’s Scinet supercomputing cluster (https://www.scinethpc.ca) and other
computation resources to sort through the Big Data associated with whole 
genome
sequences. Computational, bioinformatics and programming proficiency is 
expected
and must be demonstrated in the application materials.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in biological 
research and education
and the Department of Biological Sciences enjoys strong ties to other 
units within the
University. The successful candidate will join an expanding and dynamic 
group of
faculty working in the areas of Ecology, Evolution, Conservation, and 
Genomics and will
contribute to both the undergraduate curriculum and graduate teaching. 
The successful
candidate will be a member of a Tri-campus Graduate Department (Cell and 
Systems
Biology, https://csb.utoronto.ca/, or Ecology & Evolutionary Biology,
http://www.eeb.utoronto.ca/ depending on their field of research).
Further information on the research and teaching activities of the 
department can be
found at http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~biosci/.

combining attached documents into one or two files in PDF/MS Word format.

Applicants should also arrange that letters of reference (on letterhead, 
signed and
scanned) from at least three referees familiar with the candidate’s 
research and
teaching be emailed directly by the referees to: 
biologygeneral from utsc.utoronto.ca by the
closing date.

Applications lacking reference letters will not be considered. If you 
have questions about
this position, please email biologygeneral from utsc.utoronto.ca.
