University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM) invites applications for a
tenure-stream position in Professional Writing and Communication at the
rank of Assistant Professor.  Professional Writing and Communication is an
interdisciplinary program, and applicants from a range of backgrounds in
humanities, sciences and social sciences are invited to apply.  UTM has a
strong interdisciplinary commitment, a multicultural student body, and a
modern, spacious campus.

Preference will be given to applicants with teaching and research interests
in writing, information technology, communications, and in related
pedagogy.  The appointee will be expected to develop an externally funded
research program and contribute to a diverse undergraduate and graduate
education.  Professional Writing and Communication is a developing program

Program (C.C.I.T.).  The appointee is expected to contribute to the
development of both programs.

A Ph.D. is required as of July 1, 2002 or soon thereafter.  The successful
candidate will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in the Professional
Writing and Communication Program, CCIT Program and graduate courses at
OISE/UT (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education) in the Department of
Curriculum, Teaching and Learning.

The University of Toronto is fully committed to academic excellence and
welcomes applications from all qualified individuals.  The University of
Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community.  The
University especially welcomes applications from visible minority group
members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, and others
