CUPE 3912 Job Posting for Part-Time Instructor

Course: PHYS 1190.1 Lecture
Fundamentals Physics
Department: Department of Astronomy and Physics, Faculty of Science, Saint Mary’s University.
Semester: Fall 2018 (Sept 5 – Dec 3); Final exam period Dec 5-18.
Schedule: Lectures 6:00 – 7:15 pm Tuesday & Thursday

Academic Calendar Description:
The intent of this course is to develop fundamental skills, tools, and conceptual understanding in physics, with a focus on topics/skills that are essential for subsequent study of physics. Students study motion and dynamics of objects in one and two dimensions, including discussions of friction, collisions, circular motion and dynamics, conservation of momentum and energy, and relativity.

Additional Details:
The course is intended to provide an introductory level university physics course for students who may be looking for a one-term physics course, but with a primary focus at providing students who either lack high school Grade 12 physics, or feel they are not well prepared following their Grade 12 physics, with a course specifically designed to make the bridge from a Grade 11 physics preparation into a potential successful entry to the University Physics course sequence. The use of pedagogical tools to encourage active engagement of the students with the course material is an expected component of the course.

Qualifications:
Preferred applicant will have an undergraduate degree in physics, and a Masters degree in either Physics or Education, and have at least three years experience teaching university level courses or laboratories. A working background in the Nova Scotia high school physics curriculum, a working knowledge of current interactive engagement pedagogical techniques based on Physics Education Research, and experience developing a curriculum for a transition-type introductory physics course, are all preferred assets.

Duties:
Duties and responsibilities include course/lecture preparation and delivery; incorporation of interactive engagement techniques during course delivery; preparation of assessment materials; evaluation of all student assessments; and course-related student advising (office hours).
Remuneration: Remuneration is in accordance with the Collective Agreement between Saint Mary’s University and CUPE 3912.

CUPE 3912 Job Posting for Part-Time Instructor: Physics

Course: PHYS 1190.1 Lecture
Fundamentals Physics

Department: Department of Astronomy and Physics, Faculty of Science, Saint Mary’s University.
Semester: Fall 2017 (Sept 6 – Nov 29); Final exam period Dec 2-16.
Schedule: Lectures 18:00 – 19:15 pm Tuesday & Thursday

Academic Calendar Description:
The intent of this course is to develop fundamental skills, tools, and conceptual understanding in physics, with a focus on topics/skills that are essential for subsequent study of physics. Students study motion and dynamics of objects in one and two dimensions, including discussions of friction, collisions, circular motion and dynamics, conservation of momentum and energy, and relativity.

Additional Details:
The course is intended to provide an introductory level university physics course for students who may be looking for a one-term physics course, but with a primary focus at providing students who either lack high school Grade 12 physics, or feel they are not well prepared following their Grade 12 physics, with a course specifically designed to make the bridge from a Grade 11 physics preparation into a potential successful entry to the University Physics course sequence. The use of pedagogical tools to encourage active engagement of the students with the course material is an expected component of the course.

Qualifications: Preferred applicant will have an undergraduate degree in physics, and a Masters degree in either Physics or Education, and have at least three years experience teaching university level courses or laboratories. A working background with the NS high school physics curriculum, a working knowledge of current interactive engagement pedagogical methods based on physics education research, and experience developing curriculum for a transition-introductory physics course, are all preferred assets.

Duties: Duties and responsibilities include course/lecture preparation and delivery; incorporation of interactive student engagement methods; preparation and evaluation of all student assessments.
Remuneration: Remuneration is in accordance with the Collective Agreement between Saint Mary’s University and CUPE 3912.

How to Apply:
Applications are invited in the first instance from part-time faculty colleagues on the Saint Mary’s precedence list. Applicants who currently hold a part-time teaching appointment at Saint Mary’s University should submit a cover letter and a C.V. Applicants who do not currently hold a part-time teaching appointment at Saint Mary’s University should submit a complete application (including a cover letter, CV, proof of academic credentials, name and contact information of three referees, and any evidence of teaching effectiveness).
