Research Assistant

posted on February 6, 2017

The Simon Fraser University (SFU) Institute for the Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines (ISTLD) invites applications for a Research Assistant appointment for the Teaching and Learning Development Grant project Integrating Aboriginal Philosophy and Ethics in HSCI 319 “Applied Health Ethics” to begin March 1, 2017 or earlier.

The objective of this project is two-fold: first, to do a literature search and consult with colleagues whose research is on Aboriginal health at the Faculty of Health Sciences and others at SFU to see how best to think about and incorporate philosophical thinking and ethics in HSCI 319 “Applied Health Ethics”. Second, to collect data and analyze what the students of HSCI 319 perceived to have learned vis-à-vis the incorporation of Aboriginal ethics values and how these ideas cohere or not with the Western Analytic philosophical tradition from which the rest of the course material is derived.

Closing date for applications is February 17, 2017.
