*_Tenure Track Instructor_*

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) at the 
University of British Columbia invites applications for a tenure-track 
teaching position at the rank of Instructor I. The position provides the 
rare opportunity to pursue a career based on teaching excellence in one 
of Canada's largest and most diverse earth sciences departments. 
Appointment at a tenured rank may be considered for applicants with 
exceptional qualifications and experience. The anticipated start date 
for this position is July 1, 2014.

This position has been created to assist EOAS in fulfilling its 
commitment to engage with UBC's new Vantage College International 
Program (see http://www.vantagecollege.ubc.ca/). One of the Program's 
mandates is to offer a first-year curriculum focused on Chemistry, Earth 
and Ocean Sciences, Mathematics and Physics to a cohort of international 
students, in preparation for entry into a second year degree program in 
the Faculty of Science. The mandate also includes the development and 
implementation of innovative teaching practices.

The appointee will work with peers in the Faculty of Science, as well as 
with Academic English language Instructors, to develop the pedagogy and 
curriculum for the Program. In addition, the appointee will teach in 
EOAS. A PhD or equivalent in Earth, Ocean, or Atmospheric Sciences or a 
related area is preferred. The search is open to all disciplines that 
fall into EOAS. The position requires a demonstrated excellence in and 
commitment to undergraduate teaching, ability to work independently, 
effective communication skills, promise of educational leadership, and 
proven potential for creating innovative instructional environments in 
both the undergraduate classroom and laboratory. Experience in 
curriculum development, course design, and other initiatives that 
advance the University's ability to excel in its teaching and learning 
mandate is also an asset.

Candidates should submit a CV, a teaching statement, and the names of 
three references. The statement should include a record of teaching 
interests, experience, and effectiveness. Candidates are particularly 
encouraged to highlight experience with emerging technologies in 
teaching and learning, and experience in fostering the education of 
students from diverse backgrounds. Applications may be submitted online 
via the link provided at 
The website will remain open for submissions through the closing 
deadline of April 8, 2014. The website may remain open past the deadline 
at the discretion of the recruiting committee. All applications 
submitted while the website remains open will be considered.

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. 
All qualified persons are encouraged to apply. We especially welcome 
applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal 
persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual 
orientations and gender identities, and others with exceptional 
qualifications, experience and knowledge to engage productively with 
diverse communities.

Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
