Mount Royal University is located in Calgary,
Alberta; a city that is less than one hour drive
from the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Calgary brings a mix of dynamic big-city energy,
cheerful western hospitality, and wondrous natural
beauty. The city was recently ranked by the
Economist as one of the top five livable cities in
the world.

Since opening in 1910, Mount Royal 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 is known for its collegial
working environment.
 
Duties: New faculty 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. Limited-
term faculty are typically hired into the
teaching/service (TS) work pattern.
 
Qualifications: A Ph.D. is preferred; a Master’s degree is
required as is current registration with the
College and Association of Registered Nurses. The
successful applicant must be qualified to teach
theoretical and practice courses across the
nursing program, contribute to course and program
development and have experience in teaching.
Applicants interested in the
teaching/scholarship/service pattern should have
the ability and intent to pursue a research
program.

A complete dossier including curriculum vitae, the
names and contact information for three (3)
references, evidence of teaching excellence, and,
if the teaching/scholarship/service pattern is
desirable, evidence of intent to pursue a research
program should be submitted quoting competition
