  • Teaching and learning expertise in the discipline of mathematics
  • Track record in course development, engaging active learning techniques, and successful student evaluation (relative to opportunity)
  • Ability to develop courses with content integrating various aspects of applied mathematics and including, for instance, components of advanced methods of theoretical analysis, numerical modelling and data analysis
  • Research expertise in an area complementary to the Faculty's initiative in Engineering for Remote Operations and Applied Mathematics, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics
  • Track record in academic peer-reviewed publications in international journals and grant writing success (both relative to opportunity)
  • Experience in research collaboration between academia and industry will be considered favourably

Full details of the position's responsibilities and the selection criteria are outlined in the position description.
