Instructions
University of Toronto Mississauga's Forensic Science Program is designed to provide students with an understanding of scientific analyses, theories, laboratory skills, and field techniques as these are applied in forensic settings. Programs are offered in the fields of Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Biology, Forensic Chemistry, and Forensic Psychology. For more information, see the Forensic Science Program website at http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/forensic/. If you have questions about this position or the program, please contact Professor Tracy Rogers, Director of the Forensic Science Program, at tracy.rogers@utoronto.ca. Questions about the hiring process can be directed to Professor Esteban Parra at anthrochair.utm@utoronto.ca. All qualified candidates are invited to apply online by clicking the link below. Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of contributions to equity and diversity (see below for details), teaching dossier (including a statement of teaching philosophy, sample syllabi and course materials, and teaching evaluations), and a statement outlining current and future research interests. All application materials must be submitted online. Equity and diversity are among University of Toronto Mississauga’s core values and are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates are therefore asked to submit a 1-2 page statement of contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover topics such as (but not limited to): research or teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups. We ask that candidates combine requested documents into one file in PDF/MS Word in the following format: cover letter, CV, statement of contributions to equity and diversity, teaching dossier and research statement, titled: YourSurnameFirstname application-1903638.pdf (or .doc). The teaching dossier can be in a separate file if required due to size, otherwise bundle with the other required documents; if a separate document, please title as: YourSurnameFirstname teachingdossier-1903638.pdf (or .doc). Submission guidelines can be found at: http://uoft.me/how-to-apply. All applicants must also ask three referees to send letters (on letterhead, dated, signed and scanned) including at least one primarily addressing the candidate's teaching, directly by e-mail to secretary.utmanthro@utoronto.ca, addressed to Professor Esteban Parra, Chair of the Department of Anthropology, and with the Subject line “Forensic Epistemology Hire”. Receipt of all three letters will be necessary to review an application. All application materials, including reference letters, must be received by the closing date of October 4, 2019.
