Lecturer, International, in Materials and Nanoscience, Definite Term, Departments of Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy, University of Waterloo
The Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the Faculty of Science at the University of Waterloo invites applications for a full-time definite term Lecturer position in Materials and Nanoscience (MNS). The successful candidate will teach five lecture courses over three terms per year in introductory and advanced chemistry and/or physics, and materials and nanoscience. This position will also support a joint program with Beijing JiaoTong University in Beijing, China, requiring the successful candidate to teach several courses in Beijing for part of each year. In addition to teaching, the successful candidate will have a substantial role in advising students and in further developing the Materials and Nanoscience (MNS) undergraduate program, which is a joint program of the Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy departments. Details concerning the MNS program may be found at:
While the appointment will be made initially for a three year term, this position fills an important role in the program; it is anticipated that an appointee with outstanding performance will be considered for a permanent appointment as a Continuing Lecturer during a second three-year term.
Applicants should have outstanding training and demonstrated excellence in chemistry, physics or nanoscience. A doctoral degree in chemistry, physics or a closely related discipline is required; postdoctoral experience is desired. They should have established an outstanding teaching record or be able to provide evidence of potential for high-quality teaching at all levels within the MNS undergraduate curriculum. Teaching experience in an international setting or program, while not essential, will be considered an asset.
The salary range of this position at the Lecturer rank is $70,000 to $90,000 for 12 months. Anticipated start date for this position is May 1, 2018.
The University of Waterloo is in the attractive and vibrant two-university community of Kitchener-Waterloo (population 330,000) in southwestern Ontario, about 100 km west of Toronto. The Faculty of Science has an excellent reputation for teaching physics, chemistry and nanoscience at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and it offers outstanding research and teaching environments, including new teaching facilities in the Science Teaching Complex, opened in 2016. The University of Waterloo is also home to the world’s largest co-operative education program, where students gain work experience during work terms as part of their degree program. This is an attractive option for students entering the MNS program.
