Description:

 

The Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto invites applications from outstanding scholars for up to two full-time tenure stream positions in Law. The appointments will be at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024, or shortly thereafter.

 

The successful candidate’s field of study should complement the research and teaching specialties of the Faculty of Law. We seek candidates in all areas of law. We encourage diverse and interdisciplinary approaches to law.

 

Candidates must hold a J.D. or equivalent degree. Applicants with a doctoral degree are preferred. Applicants must demonstrate an exceptional record of excellence in research and teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to sustain and lead innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to maintain an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program.

 

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence, which can be demonstrated by sustained contributions and a record of publications in top-ranked internationally recognized and field-relevant journals, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, distinguished awards and accolades, other noteworthy activities that contribute to the visibility and prominence of the discipline, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing.

 

Evidence of excellence in teaching may be demonstrated by an established record of strong teaching, teaching accomplishments, and the teaching dossier, including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations, as well as strong endorsements by referees. For those candidates invited for a campus visit, a presentation will be required to demonstrate excellence in teaching.

 

Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

 

The University of Toronto is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to research and teaching. The Faculty of Law offers opportunities for collaborative and interdisciplinary research and teaching, and the excitement of working with a diverse student population. The Faculty actively encourages innovative scholarship. As the economic and intellectual hub of Canada, Toronto provides access to policy and decision makers at all levels, and is a vibrant, cosmopolitan, and safe city.

 

All qualified candidates are invited to apply online by clicking the link below. Applicants must submit a detailed cover letter that identifies the applicant’s areas of interest in research and teaching; a current curriculum vitae; a research statement outlining current and future research interests; copies of all law (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts; two sample publications; an equity and diversity statement (as outlined below), and a teaching dossier including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations.

 

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching, and service bear out a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Candidates are therefore also asked to submit a brief 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.

 

Applicants must provide the name and contact information of three references. The University of Toronto’s recruiting tool will automatically solicit and collect letters of reference from each referee the day after an application is submitted. Applicants remain responsible for ensuring that references submit letters (on letterhead, dated and signed) by the closing date. More details on the automatic reference letter collection, including timelines, are available in the candidate FAQ.

 

Submission guidelines can be found at http://uoft.me/how-to-apply. Your CV and cover letter should be uploaded into the dedicated fields. Please combine additional application materials into one or two files in PDF/MS Word format.

 

If you have any questions about this position, please contact recruitment.law@utoronto.ca.

 

Incomplete applications may not be accepted. All application materials, including reference letters, must be received by October 6, 2023.     

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
