The Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at the University of Toronto
Scarborough invites applications for a full-time teaching-stream position at the rank of Lecturer
in Inorganic Chemistry to begin July 1, 2011. In the fifth year of service, Lecturers will be
reviewed and a recommendation made with respect to promotion to a continuing position at the
rank of Senior Lecturer. We are inviting candidates with a strong commitment to undergraduate
education in both the lecture and lab settings to apply. Graduate school-level experience in
inorganic is essential. Experience in physical chemistry is a highly desired asset.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related field. Experience in
lecturing and/or coordinating laboratories at the university level is an asset. The applicant will be
responsible for effectively teaching and coordinating undergraduate inorganic and physical
chemistry courses with all of the attendant organizational issues of lecture preparation and
delivery, laboratory preparation and delivery including updating and printing the course lab
manual, supervision of and liaison with laboratory demonstrators, setting, supervision and
marking of exams, final course marks, record-keeping, course evaluations, and so forth.
Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2011. Applicants are asked to send a letter of
application including a full curriculum vitae, a concise plan for future teaching directions, and a
teaching dossier that outlines the candidate’s teaching experience, subject areas of teaching
expertise, and goals for course delivery and curriculum development. Applicants should arrange
for three persons to provide a letter of reference. All application materials must be received by
the application deadline.
The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially
welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, aboriginal persons,
persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to
the further diversification of ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however,
Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
