French Translation of CAIMS Website

We will soon begin the French translation of the CAIMS website. This will be done by a professional translator. However, we need to set up a small task force of fluent French-English CAIMS/SCMAI members to eventually review the translation. If you are interested in joining the task force, please email Luciano Buono, Communication Officer (Luciano.buono@uoit.ca).

Tenure-track appointment in Actuarial Mathematics
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, York University

Applications are invited for a tenure-track appointment in Actuarial Mathematics at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science, York University to commence July 1, 2015, subject to budgetary approval. The successful candidate will have completed all the requirements for a Ph.D. in Mathematics or a related discipline by the start date, and have a file that provides documentation of excellence (or, for very junior candidates, the promise of excellence) in both research and teaching. This candidate will also be suitable for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and be capable of, and willing to, assume a leadership role in the Department's actuarial program. The ideal candidate will be a Fellow of one of the following professional societies: Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA), Society of Actuaries (SoA), Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), Faculty and Institute of Actuaries (FIA), or Institute of Actuaries of Australia (IAA). Candidates willing to commit to prompt achievement of Associate status, followed by Fellowship will also be considered.
