94 New Website for Entering University of Toronto Academic Job Opportunities

PDAD&C #94, 2005-2006

MEMORANDUM

To:  Principals, Deans, Academic Directors and Chairs
From:  Edith Hillan, Vice-Provost, Academic
Date:        16th March 2006
Re: New Website for Entering University of Toronto Academic Job Opportunities


 _________________________________________________________________________________

In PDAD&C # 80, I outlined the new approach the Provost’s Office would take to advertising in University Affairs to fulfill the HRSDC requirements.  I have received very positive and useful feedback which has helped us to modify some elements of the website where academic advertisements are entered.  Only one significant change has been made and this is to facilitate the production of a short-form version of your advertisement to appear in the display ad.

Although the changes to the process of entering information are not significant, my office will hold short briefing sessions on 28th March from 9am-10am or 3rd April 1pm-2pm in the Board Room at Simcoe Hall for any Chairs or their assistants who would like a demonstration. Please email patricia.rafferty@utoronto.ca to confirm attendance.

In general, information will be entered into the website following the same format as in the past, except that you will be asked to divide the information into sections.  The sections outlined below follow the natural layout of an advertisement and should not require you to make any significant changes to your current practices, with the exception of providing the one line statement which will appear in University Affairs:-

Opening Line

The Department of Geography and Program in Planning, University of Toronto, invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment in the field of physical geography. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will begin on July 1, 2005.

Primary Description

(one line statement that will appear in University Affairs)

We seek candidates with expertise in physical geography and with interests in landscape processes and/or paleoenvironments; field, laboratory and experimental approaches are an important asset and would complement the Department's considerable strength in these areas.

Additional Description

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an externally funded research program and undertake graduate supervision and teaching. Teaching at the undergraduate level will be in both B.Sc. and B.A. programs.  The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in geography or a closely related discipline, an established record of high quality scholarly research and publication, and a demonstrated commitment to teaching.

Diversity/Equity Statement

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.
