The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo invites applications for one Faculty position at the rank of Lecturer with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2023. The successful applicant must have a civil or architectural engineering undergraduate degree or equivalent, and advanced degree(s) – preferably a PhD – in engineering. Applicants are expected to have an engineering license for practice in Canada or the ability to apply for an engineering license with the Professional Engineers of Ontario within 3 years. While the initial appointment is for a three-year definite term Lecturer, with the possibility of a renewal for another three, the appointed Lecturer may be considered for an on-going appointment thereafter as Continuing Lecturer if they demonstrate outstanding performance in teaching and service.
All applicants must have a proven ability or excellent potential for outstanding teaching in civil or architectural engineering, have strong communication skills and be committed to professional development and community building. Demonstrated service experience will be considered as a strong asset. Significant experience in industry, with a focus on building envelope or building systems design, will be considered essential. The expected teaching load is 5 to 6 courses per year depending on the level of service, with regular non-teaching terms of four-month duration every two years for scholarly rejuvenation and development activities. Applicants must also have demonstrated an interest in engineering education pedagogy, and preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated exceptional teaching skills.
The salary range is $100,000 to $140,000, depending on experience. Negotiations beyond this salary range will be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates.
