The Biology Program at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) is enhancing its support for teaching and learning initiatives by creating two new positions for Science Education Specialists (SES) one of whom will be housed in the Department of Zoology and one in the Department of Botany.

These will be staff positions that work closely with teaching faculty to coordinate and support scholarship of teaching and learning projects, advise faculty on teaching and learning practices, and assist with course and curriculum revisions, pedagogical improvement projects, and assessment of teaching and learning
effectiveness. Initial appointments will be for three years, with possibility of renewal.

We are seeking individuals with a background in any area of the Biological Sciences and experience in teaching and pedagogical development.  A graduate degree in Life Sciences or equivalent experience is required.

Successful candidates will bring expertise in evidence-based education in the context of undergraduate life-science education. Experience in curriculum development and assessment of teaching effectiveness is considered an asset.

The SESs will join a vibrant educational community both within Biology and across the Faculty of Science, and will receive training and ongoing professional development from the Faculty of Science Centre for Learning and Teaching (Skylight) and the Biology Program.

We anticipate interviewing in mid-September, and start date is flexible.
