Job Description

Applications must be received by July 15, 2021

The Department of Biology at the University of Waterloo invites applications for a full-time definite term faculty position as a Lecturer in Applied Microbiology with an anticipated start date of November 1, 2021.

The successful candidate will normally teach approximately five lecture courses over three terms per year, including an introductory course in Applied Microbiology and third- and fourth-year courses in public health, environmental, and industrial microbiology. In addition to developing, updating, and teaching courses, the successful candidate will have opportunities to have a substantial role in advising students and developing the Biology undergraduate program more broadly. Details concerning the Biology undergraduate program may be found at: https://uwaterloo.ca/biology/degrees-and-programs 

Application Instructions

Although the appointment will be made initially for a three-year term, this position fills an important role in the Department. It is anticipated that an appointee with outstanding performance will be considered for a permanent faculty appointment as a Continuing Lecturer during a second three-year term. The salary range for the Lecturer rank is $75,000 to $95,000 for 12 months.

Applicants should have relevant training and demonstrated excellence in microbiology. A doctoral degree in biology or a closely related discipline is required. Applicants should have established a strong teaching record or be able to provide evidence of potential for high-quality teaching at all levels within an undergraduate curriculum. Teaching experience in a university setting will be considered an asset.

The University of Waterloo is in the attractive and vibrant two-university community of Kitchener-Waterloo (population 330,000) in southwestern Ontario. The Faculty of Science has an excellent reputation for teaching biology and science at the undergraduate and graduate levels. It offers outstanding research and teaching environments, including new teaching facilities in the Science Teaching Complex, which 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. Additional information about the Faculty of Science can be found at: https://uwaterloo.ca/science.

Applications must be received by July 15, 2021. Application packages, which should be submitted electronically as a single pdf document, should include a brief cover letter, full curriculum vitae, a teaching dossier including a statement of teaching philosophy (up to 5 pages), and the names and full contact information of at least three references to:
