A completed PhD in a relevant discipline is required for the post, together with evidence of successful teaching experience and demonstrated research potential.

Applications will be considered until the position is filled, but the selection process will begin on 1 November 2006. Applicants should submit a letter of application accompanied by a curriculum vitae, a plan of proposed research, summaries of teaching evaluations, and selected reprints or pre-prints of published work. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the same address. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
