Job Description

The Department of Chemical Engineering is committed to excellence in teaching in its undergraduate program, and values service contributions of its Faculty members to the University, the profession and society at large. A number of faculty have received teaching awards at the Faculty, University, and Provincial levels.

Successful candidates for the Faculty Lecturer position will contribute to this environment by playing a leading role in teaching multiple undergraduate Chemical Engineering courses in both classroom and laboratory instructional settings, and with a particular emphasis on coursework related to Process Design Engineering.

Furthermore, successful candidates will actively contribute to support undergraduate curriculum development, program evaluation and continuous improvement, accreditation􀆟on review, and dissemination of pedagogical strategies.

Teaching activities will be supported in part by a dedicated and outstanding Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) unit, and the Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering (ELATE) initiative. The successful candidate will be expected to be an active member of both communities, and
develop an active interest in pedagogical innovation. Moreover, successful candidates will be encouraged to participate in the scholarship of teaching and learning, and contribute to developing a vibrant and dynamic teaching environment in the Faculty.

The expected start date is between June 1st, 2024 and September 1st, 2024. The initial appointment is for one year followed by successive two and three-year renewals based on performance review. After 6 years of continuous employment, re-appointment is for an indefinite term as a Faculty Lecturer. Promotion can then lead to a Senior Faculty Lecturer position upon meeting the criteria of the Department and University. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Qualifications and Educational Requirements:

Candidates must have, or soon expect a Doctorate (Ph.D. or equivalent) in Engineering, Education, or a field related to departmental teaching activities. An undergraduate degree in an Engineering discipline is required, and a Chemical Engineering or strongly related sub-discipline is preferred. The candidate must have, or soon be eligible for, professional engineering licensure through a Canadian Professional Engineering association. Given the expected timeline of teaching activities, program accreditation requirements, and licensure process, undergraduate degrees from accredited Canadian institutions are strongly preferred, and industrial experience would be a strong asset.

Evidence of outstanding teaching achievements, or teaching potential is indispensable. Experience in curriculum development, course design, and other initiatives that advance the University’s teaching mission would be a strong asset. Evidence of ability to work independently and to
supervise the work of others, potential for educational leadership, and potential for creating innovative instructional environments in both classroom and laboratory settings is strongly desired.

Preferred qualifications include dedication to an environment that supports a diversity of
population and perspectives. As our students come from a wide range of disciplines, cultures, and backgrounds, we invite candidates to address in their application their ability to teach, train, and mentor in this context.
