This position is subject to final budgetary approval. Salary is $8,000 per 3.0 credit course. The position is not eligible for pension and benefits except for statutory benefits (Canada Pension Plan, Employment Insurance and Worker’s Compensation Board).

We are particularly interested in applicants from underrepresented and/or racialized communities. Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Métis, Inuit, or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
