The Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) at Simon Fraser University is expanding. With over 4000 undergraduate students, 650 graduate students, and 120 faculty members, the Faculty is embarking on an exciting growth period, and we fully expect the next five years will place the disciplines within our Faculty among the best in the world. Core drivers for the Faculty include a commitment to excellence at the highest level possible, engagement with industry, a responsibility to drive social change, and empowering our students, staff, and faculty to embrace diversity and collaboration to increase innovation.
SFU is an institution whose strength is based on its shared commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty, staff, and our community.” SFU is committed to ensuring that no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications. Consistent with this principle, SFU will advance the interests of underrepresented members of the work force, specifically Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized persons, and women; embrace gender and sexual diversity; ensure that equal opportunity is afforded to all who seek employment at the University; and treat all employees equitably. Candidates that belong to underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Under the authority of the University Act, personal information that is required by the University Academic Appointment Competitions will be collected. For further details see the Collection Notice.
