Limited-Term Lecturer Position


The unit for writing-intensive learning at Simon Fraser University invites
applications for a full-time limited term lecturer to participate in the
development and implementation of writing intensive courses across the
disciplines. Our unit has a mandate to assist all university departments
and faculty in developing strategies for the teaching of writing in the
disciplines, to consult on assignment planning and design, and to provide
strategies concerning the implementation of writing as a means of learning
within courses.


We are seeking an individual with a strong background in writing and
curriculum development. Experience in the sciences/applied sciences would
be an asset. PhD or ABD near completion are required. Expertise in the
implementation of writing across the disciplines and faculty in-service
development are essential, as the position primarily requires focused work

community. Demonstrated success with post-secondary teaching and with
consultative approaches towards pedagogy are critical; successful applicants
will possess excellent communication skills.
