Tenure-track Positions at U of T

The University of Toronto invites applications for three tenure-stream appointments in Computer Science at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointments will be with the tri-campus Graduate Department of Computer Science and its affiliated undergraduate departments:
  • Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences, University of Toronto Mississauga: specific areas of interest include operating systems, networks, distributed systems, database systems, computer architecture, programming languages, and software engineering.
  • Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough: all areas of Computer Science.
  • Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto St. George: all areas of Computer Science that touch upon Big Data in the broadest possible sense-including but certainly not limited to theoretical foundations, algorithms, systems, software, applications and cross-disciplinary research. The candidate may also be nominated for a prestigious Tier II Canada Research Chair. For further information on these federally endowed Chairs see

All appointments will begin on July 1, 2014.

The University of Toronto is an international leader in computer science research and education. Successful candidates are expected to pursue innovative research at the highest level; to establish a strong, externally funded research program; to have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching; to contribute to the enrichment of undergraduate programs in their department; and to participate actively in the Graduate Department of Computer Science.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer science or a related field by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter. Evidence of excellence in teaching and research is required. Salaries are competitive with our North American peers and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants should apply online through AcademicJobsOnline,, and include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, research and teaching statements, and the names and email addresses of at least three references, who will upload confidential letters.

To receive full consideration, applications should be received by January 10, 2014.

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. The University is responsive to the needs of dual career couples. The University of Toronto offers the opportunity to conduct research, teach, and live in one of the most diverse cities in the world. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
