Subject: [cmath] Tenure-Track Position - University of the Fraser Valley
At UFV, we are dedicated to changing lives and building community. Our educational goals are to prioritize learning everywhere; be flexible and responsive; collaborate across boundaries; develop local and global citizenship; and integrate experiential learning. A British Columbia "Top Employer", we are committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive, and dynamic learning and working environment that is fair and respectful of everyone. Our culturally diverse employee and student populations reflect the local, national, international and Indigenous communities we serve. If you see yourself as a lifelong member of a community that values and nurtures innovation and creativity, cultivates leadership and citizenship, and where success builds on success, you belong at UFV.
We are seeking collegial, energetic and innovative individuals who have an outstanding ability to teach at the undergraduate level and to communicate effectively with students both in and out of the classroom. The successful candidate must be able to instruct across a broad range of the undergraduate statistics curriculum. There may be graduate level teaching opportunities in the future. The ideal candidate will be able to develop new and innovative programs and courses, apply technology in the delivery of our programs and courses, and integrate his or her research or scholarly activity into teaching.
While we are primarily a teaching-oriented university and department, the successful candidate will be expected to maintain a program of scholarly activity or research, preferably one which involves students, or is community-linked, and to commit to participation and engagement in professional development activity at the institution and/or in the community. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to service within the department, the university at large and the community.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Statistics, or one near completion. UFV is focussing on growing the areas of agriculture, health sciences, environmental studies and digital media communications, while the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Data Analysis and an Applied Statistics Minor. Applicants with academic experience in any area will be considered, but preference will be given to those with a background in Applied Statistics whose expertise supports any of these areas. Preference will also be given to applicants with statistical consulting experience in academia and/or industry.
How to Apply
The Selection Advisory Committee will begin reviewing applications on January 15, 2019; however, the position will remain open until filled. Shortlisted applicants may be required to undergo a criminal record check.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. In an effort to be both environmentally and fiscally responsible, UFV will contact only candidates receiving an interview. We thank all applicants
for considering UFV for employment. UFV is committed to the principle of equity in employment.
