The Department of Language Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough invites applications for a full-time tenure stream position in the area of English and Chinese Translation (machine or human). The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter.

Applicants must have earned a PhD degree in English and Chinese Translation or a related area by the time of appointment, or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths.

The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program. They also will become a member of the Tri-campus graduate department best suited to their area of scholarly focus.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence as demonstrated by a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, the submitted research statement, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing.

Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier including a teaching statement, sample course materials, teaching evaluations, as well as strong letters of reference. Candidates must also show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

- A recent writing sample, and
- A teaching dossier to include 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 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, inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.

Applicants must also provide the name and contact information of three references. The University of Toronto’s recruiting tool will automatically solicit and collect letters of references from each once an application is submitted.
