Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Mathematics invites applications for one or more tenure track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2005, subject to budgetary approval.

The successful candidate will contribute substantially to the departmentís research in applied mathematics, particularly in areas of modelling, simulation and control of physical and biological systems. Applications from candidates with interest and experience in developing, analysing and implementing mathematical models related to nanotechnology and computational biology are particularly encouraged. Strong skills in scientific computing and visualization, especially computational methods in pdes, and the ability to adapt to new scientific environments are important assets.

Candidates should hold a PhD at the time of the appointment, should demonstrate superior ability and commitment to teaching, and have an active research program with strong potential for external funding. The Mathematics Department is a dynamic part of the Faculty of Science, with leading researchers in many areas. The Department hosts a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Mathematical Modelling, and a SHARCNET Chair in Financial Mathematics. The development of interdisciplinary research in areas of mathematical modelling is an ongoing priority.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, research plan (documenting interests and experience in the fields cited above), copies of recent publications and a teaching dossier (including teaching evaluations), and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to: Dr. David C. Vaughan, Chair, Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3C5. Deadline for applications is November 19, 2004, but applications received after this date may be considered until all positions are filled.

Further details concerning the Department and its programs may be found at www.wlu.ca/~wwwmath/. The university is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including persons in a visible minority, persons with disabilities, and aboriginal people. In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.


The University has a new Science Research Center and a dynamic research community in computational sciences.  Laurier is part of the Shared Hierarchical Academic Research Computing Network (SHARCNET) and  is connected to ORION, Ontario's high speed network. The University Library belongs to the TriUniversity Group of Libraries which unites library resources at the Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Guelph, and the University of Waterloo.   Waterloo is a dynamic city in Ontario, 50 minutes west of Toronto, the largest city in Canada.
