The Department of Neuroscience invites applications from qualified candidates for a tenure-track appointment in the Department of Neuroscience at the rank of Instructor I beginning July 1, 2018.
The Department of Neuroscience is recognized for its teaching excellence in the areas of Neuroscience and Mental Health. We are interested in candidates who have demonstrated excellence and innovation in teaching Neuroscience, are interested in developing new approaches to enhance recruitment and retention, and who are willing to work collegially and collaboratively to strengthen and enhance teaching, primarily at the undergraduate level. While candidates will be encouraged to teach courses targeting both introductory and senior courses, most teaching is expected to be focused on large introductory neuroscience courses.
The Department of Neuroscience has a rapidly expanding undergraduate program that includes new teaching laboratories, and an established and strong graduate program. It is well placed for extensive collaborations with other units within the university, as well as outside of the university including government and academic institutions. Further information can be obtained from our website at www.carleton.ca/neuroscience.
