      Quest University Canada
        Division of Social Sciences
        One-Year ("Term") Full-Time Appointment

        Quest University Canada, a new arts and sciences undergraduate institution located in Squamish, British Columbia, has a faculty position open for next year (and possibly beyond). We are looking for a one-year ("term"), full-time appointment to teach six sections of a course called "Global Perspectives" that aims to orient incoming students toward contemporary problems in the world.

        Themes may include intercultural communications, globalization and development, international relations, and global social issues such as AIDS, poverty, or environmental degradation. The course studies how information gets transmitted from one person to another and tries to explain specific communication processes. The intention is to help students become more conscious of how people converse across cultures and ethnicities, to step outside of their own experiences and to appreciate the positions of citizens from a variety of origins. This is a course that can be designed to some degree to fit the abilities and interests of the potential faculty member. We are really open to candidates from any disciplinary field in the social sciences so long as they can teach global issues.

        Quest works on the block system—a one course at a time program where each course goes for three hours/day for 18 days—corresponding roughly to one course per month. The university is focused on excellence in teaching so that is the primary requirement for this position. We intend to hold a formal search and make the position permanent the following year so the person who fills the position next year would be welcome to apply to become a permanent member of our faculty in AY 09-10.

        Quest University Canada can offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience, and a benefits package for the position in 08-09. It’s also a great opportunity to work with a progressive and diverse community of scholar-educators as we grow this university.

        If you are interested in this position, please contact:
