The Department of Mathematics invites applications for a tenure-track alternate stream position at the rank of Assistant Lecturer, commencing July 1, 2018.

Candidates must have a PhD in Mathematics or Statistics. They must demonstrate excellence or promise of excellence in teaching, and be able to teach undergraduate courses in algebra, analysis, probability and statistics. Qualified applicants must be fully fluent in French and English and able to teach in both languages in a multicultural context. The ability to use innovative pedagogical methods (for instance, the use of experiential education or of new technologies) will be viewed as an asset.

The selected candidate will keep abreast of the latest trends in didactics of mathematics (including the application of experiential education and of new technologies) and will spearhead curriculum development of, and innovative pedagogical initiatives in, mathematics and statistics undergraduate courses. The normal teaching load for this alternate stream position is 3.5 full course equivalents. Given Glendon's bilingual mandate, the selected candidate will also participate actively in College-wide service activities in both English and French. Consistent with the Alternate Stream, engagement with basic research is not expected for advancement. Of course, any research related to the candidate's course work will be considered with the candidate's teaching performance.

Glendon is committed to high-quality teaching in the tradition of the liberal arts and offers a unique undergraduate academic experience for students within one of Canada's largest research universities.
