Two tenure-Track instructors in Geoscience

Applications are invited for two tenure-track initial term instructor positions in the Department of Geoscience. These teaching positions are part of an ongoing effort to improve the experience of undergraduate students through student engagement and student learning in any area of geoscience. The successful applicants will have an advanced degree in geoscience (PhD or equivalent expected) and a desire to achieve teaching excellence and pedagogical and curricular development within an academic setting.  All candidates who consider themselves passionate and adaptable with respect to teaching across a variety of geoscience disciplines (see http://www.geoscience.ucalgary.ca/courses for reference to courses) are welcome to apply.

Known as Canada's energy capital, Calgary is a bustling city of more than 1.2 million, located near the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The University of Calgary is a global intellectual hub where students thrive in programs made rich by research and hands-on experiences.  The Department of Geoscience is one of the largest geoscience departments in North America, with comprehensive undergraduate and graduate programs recognized for excellence world-wide and research strengths in energy and environmental geoscience.

Applications must include a cover letter indicating your qualifications for the position, a curriculum vitae, a maximum two-page statement of teaching philosophy including a list of disciplinary areas in which the candidate would like to teach, and the complete contact information of three referees. Appointment will be within the Instructor stream, with a 12-month salary commensurate with experience (see Collective Agreement at http://www.tucfa.com/?page_id=111). Review of applications will commence on January 3, 2014 and continue until the positions are filled.

Applications should be sent to:

Prof. Charles Henderson, Head, Department of Geoscience

Calgary, AB., CANADA  T2N 1N4
Fax: (403) 284-0074

The University of Calgary respects, appreciates, and encourages diversity.
