Assistant Professor in Astronomy

Campion College at the University of Regina invites applications for a probationary tenure-track appointment in astronomy at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics to begin July 1, 2019. The successful candidate will have a PhD in astronomy and have a record of a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Teaching duties will primarily involve introductory and intermediate classes in astronomy. There are also opportunities to develop higher level undergraduate courses, and to supervise special-case graduate students, although the Department of Physics offers neither an undergraduate major nor a graduate program in astronomy. Excellence in research, in any area of astronomy, and a proven ability to contribute to a team environment is also essential.
