The Departments of Political Science and Computer Science of the University of Toronto seek to hire a postdoctoral researcher for a two-year term, beginning 1 July 2014, or as soon as possible. The successful applicant will join an international consortium of researchers focused on the development of computational tools for the analysis of political ideology in the recorded histories of parliamentary debates in Canada, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in a relevant field of specialization (e.g., political science, computational linguistics), as well as experience with the computational analysis of large datasets, especially large corpora of text. Fluency in French and/or Dutch is an asset, but not a requirement. The stipend for this position is $50,000 (CDN) per year, plus an additional 10% benefits package, which is outlined at: http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/postdoctoralfellows/Pages/Current-Postdocs.aspx.

The University of Toronto is situated in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, a large multicultural city in the center of an urban area with a population of more than 5.5 million people. The University of Toronto is within walking distance of all of the amenities that a major metropolitan center provides.

Applicants should forward a cover letter, a one-page description of their research interests, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information for three referees to both Professor Christopher Cochrane (application email address below) and Professor Graeme Hirst (contact email address below). Consideration of applications will begin on 1 April 2014, and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
