Our primary objective is teaching excellence, particularly in the experiential/laboratory setting. We also expect that the successful candidate will be actively engaged in pedagogy and lead positive change in all of our educational programs including laboratory curriculum. 

The successful candidate will have: demonstrated excellence in teaching and pedagogy; a strong background in chemical engineering theory and practise; and excellent organizational and communication skills. Evidence of excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through strong letters of reference and the teaching dossier submitted as part of the application. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Candidates must have or be eligible for Professional Engineering registration. 

The CHE Department consistently ranks among the top in Canada and attracts outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, has excellent facilities, and is ideally located in the middle of a vibrant cosmopolitan city. Additional information may be found at: www.chem-eng.utoronto.ca. 

All qualified candidates are invited to apply online at the link below. For further information about the application process, please see the submission guidelines at http://uoft.me/how-to-apply. 

Applicants shall provide a curriculum vitae and a teaching dossier (including a statement of teaching philosophy and interests and evidence of teaching excellence such as teaching evaluations).
