Applications are invited from qualified individuals for a tenure track position with the College of Arts and Science in the Department of Computer Science. The University of Saskatchewan, the College of Arts and Science and the Department of Computer Science are strongly committed to diversity. Applications from Indigenous persons and women are especially encouraged and will be given preference. The successful candidate will build a substantial, externally funded research program in Bioinformatics or Computational Biology, with emphasis on development of novel algorithms and software. While all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology will be considered, preference will be given to candidates with a strong record in empirical evaluation of large heterogeneous datasets.
Applicants should prepare a research statement outlining research accomplishments and proposed research area, and how their research fits within a department of Computer Science. This position is affiliated with the Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (p2irc.usask.ca). Candidates should identify in their research statement how they would interact with research underway at P2IRC. The current university vision emphasizes collaborative research. Candidates should identify how they will work with other faculty members in the department, units on campus, and external and academic partners, while maintaining an independent Bioinformatics research program.
The successful candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate levels in both Computer Science and Bioinformatics programs. Candidates are encouraged to visit http://www.cs.usask.ca/ for program details. A teaching dossier, comprised of a teaching philosophy statement, reflection on prior experience, and which courses the candidate could teach in the department must be included. In particular, candidates should identify which required third year courses in the four-year Computer Science degree they are comfortable teaching.
