Faculty Career Opportunity



Competition: MATH
JOB TITLE: ENGINEERING LAB INSTRUCTOR
Position Type: Part-time
Term: Winter 2013
Department: Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering
Date Posted: December 17, 2012
Closing Date: Open Until a Suitable Candidate Is Found
 
Description: The Department of Mathematics, Physics and Engineering invites applications for instructor(s) to teach the lab component of ENGR 1303, Electric Circuits and Machines, to first-year engineering students in the Winter term of 2013, pending budgetary approval and demand.
 
Duties: Duties will consist of teaching one or more laboratory sections every week, as well as marking laboratory reports. There are a total of 3 three-hour sections, each with a maximum of 20 students. The sections are scheduled as follows: Mondays (9:30 – 12:20), Wednesdays (2:00 – 4:50), and Fridays (12:30 – 15:20). The lab instructor(s) will be required to familiarize themselves with the laboratory experiments prior to class, so some preparation work is required. The lab delivery will be coordinated with the ENGR 1303 course supervisor during one hour biweekly meetings, along with planning and wrap-up meeting before and after the semester, respectively.
 
Qualifications: The laboratory course is designed to complement the ENGR 1303 lectures, and thus students will be building circuits that incorporate concepts and instrumentation such as node voltage analysis, operational amplifiers, impedance, and DC machines. Instructors are expected to be knowledgeable and proficient in all these and related topics. Previous experience in teaching electrical engineering laboratories will be an asset. A minimum of a bachelor degree in engineering, or related field, is required.

Winter 2011 semester classes run January 7 – April 12 2013.

A complete dossier including curriculum vitae, the names and contact information of three (3) references, and evidence of a commitment to teaching excellence should be submitted.
