The University of the Fraser Valley is nationally recognized for its commitment to teaching excellence, community relevance, and Indigenization. With over 100 programs, from graduate and undergraduate arts, science, and professional degrees to trades and technical education, university preparation, and continuing education, UFV is the school of choice for over 15,000 students.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 1, 2017, subject to budgetary approval. Interested individuals who currently hold a rank higher than Assistant are also encouraged to apply, as the Dean may take into account the successful candidate’s current position and experience.

We are seeking collegial, energetic and innovative individuals who have an outstanding ability to teach at the undergraduate level and to communicate effectively with students both in and out of the classroom. The successful candidate must be able to instruct across a broad range of the undergraduate statistics curriculum. There may be graduate level teaching opportunities in the future. The ideal candidate will be able to develop new and innovative programs and courses, apply technology in the delivery of our programs and courses, and integrate his or her research or scholarly activity into teaching.

While we are primarily a teaching-oriented university and department, the successful candidate will be expected to maintain a program of scholarly activity or research, preferably one which involves students, or is community-linked, and to commit to participation and engagement in professional development activity at the institution and/or in the community. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to service within the department, the university at large and the community.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in Statistics, or one near completion. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers in addition to its BA and BSc in Mathematics, a post-baccalaureate certificate in Data Analysis and will be offering an Applied Statistics Minor commencing in 2017. UFV’s Strategic Enrolment Management (SEM) plan is focussed on growing multi and interdisciplinary areas in Agriculture and the Environmentally Responsible Development of the Fraser Valley, Health and Wellness, and Digital Media Technologies. Applicants with academic experience in any area will be considered, but preference will be given to those with a background in Applied Statistics whose expertise supports Data Analytics or any of the above SEM growth areas.

How to Apply Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae; evidence of teaching excellence (student evaluations if available); one-page statement of teaching philosophy including (if available) examples of innovative approaches to teaching and course design; one-page statement of proposed research program or scholarly activity, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to UFV.
