Academic Employment

In this section, one can access job postings for all academic employment in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. This includes all work for Teaching Assistants (TAs), course instructors, as well as Faculty and Lecturer positions. All forms necessary for submission of an application for academic employment are also available here.

There are three categories of academic employees in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto. The first two are represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employers. They are divided into two bargaining units, as below. The third group are those represented by the University of Toronto Faculty Association (UTFA). Each employee belongs to only one catagory, depending upon their status at the university:

CUPE 3902 Unit 1
This group includes graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and undergraduates. Job opportunties include TA work (grader or tutorial lead) and course instructorships.

CUPE 3902 Unit 3
This group encompasses those who are otherwise “outside” the university, i.e. not studying at the university. Job opportunities consist primarily of course instructorships (known as SIs, Sessional Instructorships), but there is also sometimes TA work (grader or tutorial leader). The latter positions are known as SIA (Sessional Instructional Assistantships)

UTFA
This is the University of Toronto Faculty Association (which is not a union). Employees hired under this rubric include Faculty members, Lecturers (full and part-time), as well as CLTAs (Contractually Limited Term Appointments).
