Assistant Professor, Mathematics

Requirements

Cape Breton University is one of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities with a comprehensive set of liberal arts, science and professional programs and a unique commitment to community, economic development, aboriginal learning and research into many aspects of environment and culture. Currently home to approximately 3200 students, CBU’s vision of higher education allows students to pursue diverse fields of study in programs with national reputations in final year student satisfaction, faculty-student interaction and employability.

CBU delivers an authentic multicultural experience to all who become part of its academic community. Our faculty bring passion to their teaching and research, and we are known for our smaller class sizes as well as our friendly and inclusive culture. Strong community involvement and a spirit of entrepreneurship enhance CBU’s position in post-secondary education.

The Department of Mathematics, Physics & Geology at CBU invites applications for a term position in Mathematics at the rank of Assistant Professor to commence January 2017 and end in April 2017. Part-time teaching may also be available during Spring/Summer term.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in Mathematics and previous teaching experience. The ideal candidate will be prepared to teach first year Calculus and second year Differential Equations.

CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across Canada, on-line, and off campus in locations outside Canada. The university and its partners will therefore provide opportunities for faculty members to teach in different modes in different locations as part of their regular workload. While these opportunities may not be available equally for all faculty positions in all programs, a clear willingness to teach in different modes and locations will be noted as part of your application.

Qualified candidates should send a letter of application quoting the reference number (MTH1609), a complete dossier including curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a sample of scholarly writing and three current letters of reference (sent directly to CBU) to the Human Resources Department. Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. October 17, 2016. Applicants who apply by email (pdf format preferred) will receive a return email confirming receipt.

Cape Breton University is strongly committed to fostering diversity within our community. We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, our faculty and its scholarship including, but not limited to, women, visible minorities, Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity. Please note that all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply but applications from Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. CBU is open to part time and job share applications.
