About the Faculty of Science and Technology

The Department of Mathematics and Computing, Faculty of Science and Technology at Mount Royal University invites applications for a tenure track position which will commence July 1, 2018, subject to final budgetary approval, at the Rank of Assistant Professor.

Mount Royal University’s Faculty of Science and Technology offers a four-year Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree. Students can pursue majors in cellular and molecular biology, environmental science, general science, geology, and health science. In addition, the faculty also offers a Bachelor of Computer Information Systems (BCIS), Bachelor of Science – Computer Science (University Transfer), Environmental Science Certificate, and an Aboriginal Science and Technology Education Program (ASTEP). The Earth and Environmental Sciences department, within the Faculty of Science and Technology, supports three disciplines: Environmental Science, Geography, and Geology.

The Department of Mathematics and Computing also offers minors in Computer Information Systems, Mathematics, and Mathematics for Elementary Education, and provides mathematics and computing courses for students in the B.Sc. and other major areas.


About the Role

New faculty are hired into one of two work patterns. The teaching/ scholarship/ service pattern (TSS) has a focus on teaching with the requirement that the faculty member be involved in a research program as well as service to the Mount Royal community. The teaching/ service pattern (TS) has a focus on teaching and service only. There is an option to change work patterns after tenure.

The successful candidate will teach mainly in the Bachelor of Computer Information Systems program, develop senior-level courses in their area of expertise, and be expected to develop a research program that includes undergraduate students. The ability to attract external funding, or clear promise thereof, is desirable. Priority will be given to applicants who specialize in cyber-security and networking, data analytics and visualization, web/cloud computing, or human-computer interaction. However, outstanding candidates from other areas are encouraged to apply. Candidates with industry experience are also encouraged to apply. Applicants with a commitment to the advancement of women and minorities in computing are a priority.


Preferred candidates will hold a doctorate in a computing-related discipline, or a doctorate in another discipline with experience deemed to be relevant, or; a Master’s degree, normally in a computing-related discipline, and significant work experience that would enable the candidate to make an appropriate academic contribution. Additionally, the candidate will demonstrate a primary commitment to undergraduate teaching and an ongoing research program.


A complete dossier should be submitted including cover letter, curriculum vitae (including list of publications), teaching dossier (including recent teaching evaluations or other evidence of teaching excellence), statement of research interests (including the future role of undergraduate students), a brief statement explaining the candidate’s contribution to either two sample publications or two significant work projects, ideally with embedded links to relevant publications or projects, and a list of three (3) references.

We thank all applicants for their interest. Only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted. After the close date, you can check on the status of your application through your Career Centre. New career opportunities arise frequently and are posted as they become available. Please check back often to view our latest postings on our Career Opportunities page. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Mount Royal University hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to fostering diversity as a source of excellence, intellectual and cultural enrichment, and social strength. We welcome applications from those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, faculty and their scholarship including but not limited to Indigenous Peoples, women, persons with disabilities and persons of any sexual or gender identity, ethnic, national or socio-economic background, religion or age.
