The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will begin on July 1, 2018.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in sociology and statistical science research and education. Successful candidates are expected to pursue independent, innovative research at the highest international level; to establish a strong externally funded independent research program; to have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching, and to contribute to the enrichment of both Departments.
