The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the Faculty of Science at the University of Waterloo invites applicants for two Definite Term Lecturer positions. The initial appointment will be for three years, with the possibility of renewal for an additional two or three years. Beyond that, promotion into a Continuing Lecturer position is possible. The expected start date is September 1, 2019.
Applicants must have a PhD in Physics (or equivalent), or in exceptionally qualified cases, an MSc in Physics.
Applicants are strongly preferred to have some experience teaching physics at the University level. Applicants must have a strong commitment to undergraduate physics education and excellent organizational and communication skills. We are particularly interested in candidates who have the potential to take a lead role in mentoring, advising and engaging with students, and those who are familiar with modern pedagogical methods aligned with the latest physics education research. This position will normally have a teaching load of six one-term courses per year and administrative duties as determined by the Chair. Teaching duties include but are not limited to instructing undergraduate Physics and Astronomy classes and laboratory demonstrations for students at all levels, in Science and other Faculties. The starting salary range is $75,000 to $85,000 and will be commensurate with experience; negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates. Candidates should submit electronically a curriculum vitae outlining their qualifications, experience and teaching goals and make arrangements for three letters of reference to be sent to Dr. Brian McNamara, Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, N2L 3G1. Telephone: (519) 888-4567; extension 36831; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Materials should be received by December 15, 2018.
