The Institute for Studies in Transdisciplinary Engineering Education & Practice (ISTEP) in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering invites applications for a continuing teaching stream appointment, specializing in the instruction of Applied Engineering Mathematics. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, with an expected start date of January 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter. 

ISTEP seeks applications from individuals with expertise and experience in postsecondary instruction of mathematics that integrates dimensions of human perspectives and values, discipline-specific communication, integration of math into engineering argument, and engineering judgement. Applicants must have a PhD in Mathematics or Engineering, at the time of appointment or soon after, or a related Masters degree with extensive teaching experience. We seek candidates whose teaching interests complement and strengthen our existing departmental strengths. Candidates must have teaching expertise in a degree granting program at the undergraduate program level, including lecture preparation and delivery, and curriculum development. Experience with instructional innovation or online teaching, and the broader integration of mathematics into engineering education and practice are expected. Additionally, candidates must possess a demonstrated commitment to excellent pedagogical practices and a demonstrated interest in teaching-related scholarly activities.

Evidence of excellence in engineering education, curricular development, instruction of engineering mathematics, and pedagogical inquiry will be demonstrated within the application through: 1) a CV and cover letter documenting experience including teaching accomplishments, awards and accolades, and presentations at significant conferences; 2) a teaching dossier, including a strong statement of teaching philosophy, sample syllabi and course materials, curricula developed, and teaching evaluations; and 3) letters of reference from referees of high standing endorsing excellent teaching and commitment to teaching innovation. The successful applicant will teach in multiple courses primarily in First Year and will contribute to innovating the instruction of mathematics across Engineering’s undergraduate curricula.   

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.
