Extended-Term Appointment in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Concordia University invites applications for an Extended-Term Appointment (ETA) in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics, to start in August 2018.  The initial appointment will be at the rank of Lecturer, and will be for a three-year period with the possibility of re-appointment. The Department is a designated Centre of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) by the Society of Actuaries and its Actuarial degree programs are recognized under the University Accreditation Program of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries.

Requirements include a completed PhD degree in Actuarial Mathematics or related field, significant university teaching experience, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. The mandate of an ETA is teaching and service.  Teaching duties will entail courses mainly in the areas of Actuarial Mathematics, Probability and Statistics. Service duties include student advising, course co-ordination, curriculum development, and support of the continued accreditation of our degree programs in Actuarial Mathematics and designation as a CAE. Professional membership or commitment to pursuing membership as an Associate or Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, Canadian Institute of Actuaries, or Casualty Actuarial Society would be an asset.

Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, a copy of the Ph.D. degree, a statement of teaching philosophy/interests, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Applicants must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to the Chair.  Evidence of teaching effectiveness is the key attribute by which qualified candidates are ranked.  Applications and inquiries should be sent electronically to the Department Chair, Dr. Cody Hyndman, at chair.mathstat@concordia.ca. More information about the Department is available at concordia.ca/artsci/math-stats

This position is subject to budgetary approval and department/unit need, and is full-time. The initial appointment is for approximately 36 months. Individuals holding extended-term appointments may be granted a subsequent appointment given continued funding and need, as well as satisfactory job performance.

The review of the applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the required position has been filled.  All applications should reach the Department no later than May 1, 2018.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply for this position; however, Canadians and Permanent Residents will be given priority. Concordia University is strongly committed to employment equity within its community, and to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff. The University encourages applications from all qualified candidates, including women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons, members of sexual minorities, persons with disabilities, and others who may contribute to diversification.
