Lecturer (0.5 FTE)

The Department of Economics at Simon Fraser University is inviting applications for a 0.5 continuing teaching faculty appointment at the rank of Lecturer.

The expected starting date is on or after July 1, 2023.  Normally, faculty members holding a continuing 0.5 teaching position will teach four one-term courses across three terms annually. The teaching assignment will be primarily for ECON 220W, a writing-intensive course which emphasizes language and communication skills.

Teaching excellence is the primary criterion for this position. The successful candidate will have a PhD completed by the employment start date or shortly thereafter.  Only those eligible to be appointed to the rank of Lecturer will be considered.

Ideally, the candidate

·       has formal training in EAL/TESL/second language acquisition

·       has significant teaching experience in post-secondary education

·       holds a PhD in Economics, or closely related field

SFU is a university that serves students of diverse ethnic, cultural, linguistic and international origins. Therefore, interest and/or experience in working in multicultural and international settings with students who have diverse backgrounds is a desired attribute of all applicants.

Applications must include a CV, three confidential letters of reference, and a teaching dossier which demonstrates your teaching effectiveness. The teaching dossier should include:

·       a two-page summary describing your teaching philosophy, emphasizing your approach to teaching EAL students, and any work on course and curriculum development and/or pedagogical innovation;

·       and, for the most recent courses taught (up to 8 courses):

  •         instructional materials: syllabi, sample exams and assignments, grading rubrics;
  •         teaching evaluations (including both raw data and summary statistics) and/or a letter of reference from someone who has observed the candidate teaching; and
  •         a statement summarizing and contextualizing the evidence presented.
