Assistant Teaching Professor

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor position, leading to a continuing position, and subsequent eligibility for tenure, to commence July 1, 2020, or as soon as possible after that date. Successful applicants will be welcomed into a stimulating, collegial and culturally diverse department with an outstanding record in both research and teaching, and a University community that is strongly supportive of mathematical sciences training across a wide range of disciplines. A documented record of improving the participation of underrepresented groups in the mathematical sciences and an articulated plan to continue such activities will be considered an asset.
