Assistant Professor – The Sutton Family Chair in Science, Christianity and Cultures

The Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto together invite applications for a full-time tenure stream appointment in Science, Christianity and Cultures. The successful applicant will also be eligible to be named the Sutton Family Chair in Science, Christianity and Cultures, which is an endowed Chair position. Appointment to the Sutton Family Chair in Science, Christianity and Cultures will be for a four-year term with renewal following a favorable review. The successful candidate will be appointed both to the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics (51%) and St Michael’s College (49%). The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and is expected to commence on July 1, 2020.
We seek applicants whose research and teaching interests complement and strengthen our existing departments. The successful candidate will be expected to establish and maintain a competitive, independent, innovative, and externally-funded research program in observational cosmology that will be at the highest international level in Astronomy and Astrophysics and will contribute to the visibility and prominence of the discipline. Teaching assignments will be undergraduate and graduate courses in both Astrophysics and in the Christianity and Culture program, both of which are housed within the Faculty of Arts and Science. These courses may include general introductions to models of relating religion and science to senior research seminars on, for instance, multi-disciplinary approaches to cosmology that involve both scientific and religious elements.
Applicants must have earned a PhD in astronomy, astrophysics, or a related field at the time of appointment or shortly after, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching.
Excellence in research is evidenced primarily by a record of publishing articles in the leading academic journals in the field or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the quality of published papers submitted for review, a research statement, participation in major international conferences, seminars at leading institutions, as well as strong endorsements from referees of high standing. In turn, the candidate is expected to draw on that research program to offer excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level, through means such as lecture preparation and delivery, curriculum development, supervision of research students, and openness to co-curricular, international, and experiential learning opportunities associated with a college-sponsored program.
Evidence for excellence in teaching will be based on a teaching statement, a teaching dossier (including sample course materials and teaching evaluations), teaching accomplishments, and letters of reference that address teaching, with at least one of these letters addressing the candidate’s capacity to teach in the Christianity and Culture program. Candidates invited for an interview will be asked to deliver a sample lecture suitable for the Christianity and Culture program.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
The University of Toronto (www.utoronto.ca) offers the opportunity to teach, conduct research, and live in one of the most diverse cities in the world. The graduate Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics has 30 faculty members, 50 graduate students, and 40 post-doctoral fellows.
