*_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
Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
