He completed a postoctoral fellowship at the University of Victoria and has been a faculty member at MacEwan University since 2010. Between 2015 and 2016, during a leave of absence from MacEwan University, he took a position at Trent University.
Between 2009 and 2015, Dr. Strungaru was a problem editor and then an Olympiad Corner editor for the journal Crux Mathematicorum with Mayhem. Since 2016, he has been the editor for the COMC Problem of the Week section with the Canadian Math Society. He is a board member for the Alberta High School Math Competition.
Available to supervise senior students' independent study.
