Position Description:

The Department of Integrative Biology seeks to appoint a tenure track faculty member in Biology Teaching and Educational Innovation at either the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level. Candidates for the position should exhibit demonstrated expertise in the scholarship of science education and be capable of advising graduate students. In addition, applicants should have a demonstrated record of excellent, innovative teaching in the Department’s disciplines of ecology, evolution, and/or physiology at the university level. It is expected that the successful candidate will engage in the design and delivery of courses that vary in format, level, and size (including large classes).

The successful candidate will be expected to take a leading role in the ongoing development and delivery of innovative educational programs at the undergraduate and graduate level and in sharing knowledge on educational best practices with colleagues in the department. In addition, the successful candidate should be able to catalyze educational scholarship efforts among members of the department, and to develop and maintain collaborations across departments at the University of Guelph and elsewhere. Applicants are therefore encouraged to provide clear evidence of leadership, innovation, collaboration, and interdisciplinarity in relation to biology teaching and educational scholarship. The overall distribution of effort allotted to teaching, research/scholarship, and service is negotiable but it is expected that the successful candidate will engage in the delivery of 2 or more courses per year.
