The Department of Literature, Folklore and the Arts in the School of Arts & Social Sciences at CBU invites applications for a full-time limited term position in English at the rank of Lecturer. This position will commence January 4, 2022 and end in August 2022, with the possibility of renewal.

CBU delivers an authentic multicultural experience to all who become part of its 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 successful candidate will teach three first-year English courses in the Winter semester and three first-year English courses in the Spring-Summer semester; evidence of teaching excellence is critical.

Candidates must have a Masters in English or in a related discipline (e.g. Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, or Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis on literary material).

CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across and outside of Canada, and on-line. 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.

Applicants are expected to demonstrate potential and commitment with regard to teaching, and service to Cape Breton University, community and profession.

The union affiliation of this position is with the Cape Breton University Faculty Association.
