Queen's University

Tenure-Track/Tenured position in STEM Education

The Faculty of Education at Queen’s University invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured position in STEM education at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, with a preferred starting date of July 1, 2022.

The ideal candidate will be able to work in both primary-junior (JK-6) and intermediate-senior (7-12) school levels but may have expertise more obviously in one of the levels. To align with provincial curriculum demands, demonstrated ability in computer science, mathematics, and/or the school sciences (biology, chemistry, environmental, general science, physics) is essential. Knowledge of collaborative problem solving, interdisciplinarity, design thinking, and facilitating team-centred professional learning communities is expected.

In addition to being an accomplished academic, the successful applicant must demonstrate the ability to build community connections in Kingston and the surrounding region. The successful applicant will be or is expected to become involved in wider STEM networks and look to broaden interdisciplinary connections with Arts-oriented thinkers, within the university, local colleges, school boards, and other relevant community partners. They will be able to call upon these connections to build working relationships in response to Ministry of Education and community-identified needs to promote and integrate STEM thinking in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report, Ontario Equity Action Plan, and to promote equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization.


Key Expectations in Teaching, Research, and Service:
• To facilitate and promote increased participation in STEM activities and educational futures.
• To seek opportunities to incorporate the Arts within STEM principles in teaching and learning.
• To address equity, diversity, inclusivity, and decolonization in teaching and learning, with particular attention to Black, Indigenous and racialized/minoritized, 2SLGBTQ+ students, those with exceptionalities, and other relevant student groups.
• To foster and support the education, supervision, and mentorship of students in the graduate programs.
• To teach in the teacher education and graduate programs.
• Maintain an active program of research and publication.
• To support interdisciplinary, inter-university, and inter-collegial research and graduate supervision.
• To initiate and sustain collaboration with researchers in other units within the university in support of local communities, learners, and schools.
• To contribute meaningfully to Faculty, University, and Professional (local, regional, national, international) organizations and groups.
• To develop and maintain relationships with professionals in school systems or other social agencies and community groups.
• To foster relationships with schools and community groups that may lead to research partnerships or collaborations.


Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree completed at the start date of the appointment. The successful candidate must provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding. They will demonstrate strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs. Candidates must provide evidence of an ability to work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary and student-centred environment. The successful candidate will also be expected to make contributions through service to the Faculty, the University, and/or the broader community. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
