Competition Closes: January 3, 2013
The Department of Humanities, Mount Royal University, invites applications for a tenure track position in nineteenth century Canadian History, at the rank of Assistant Professor, which will commence August 15, 2013, subject to final budgetary approval. Priority will be given to entry level candidates.
A completed Ph.D. and experience in undergraduate teaching is required. The successful applicant must be qualified to teach introductory as well as senior courses, and be willing to participate in course and program development. The ability to teach and develop courses in politics, colonial North America, sexuality, immigration, race, and/or ethnicity would be considered an asset.
Mount Royal University is seeking candidates with a focus on teaching and learning, although this position also provides the opportunity for participation in research. New faculty members are hired into one of two work patterns. The teaching/scholarship/service pattern has a focus on teaching with the requirement that the faculty member be involved in a research program as well as service to the Mount Royal community. The teaching/service pattern has a focus on teaching and service only. It is up to the candidate to choose their work pattern and there is an option to change one’s work pattern after tenure is awarded. Candidates who opt for the scholarship pattern should have a record of scholarly accomplishment, and it is expected that they will maintain an active research programme.
Located in Calgary, Alberta, a vibrant city of over one million people, Mount Royal University is situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Since opening in 1910, Mount Royal University has embraced change in order to meet the needs of the people and community it serves. At Mount Royal students experience high quality education enhanced by smaller class sizes, personalized learning and a single-minded dedication to premier undergraduate learning. Mount Royal University is known for its collegial working environment.
