Located in the Greater Vancouver area, SFU’s Faculty of Education is committed to scholarly excellence, leading-edge pedagogy, innovative curriculum, engagement with teachers, and a participatory democratic culture. We offer programs on three campuses in Burnaby, Surrey, and downtown Vancouver – and work with learning communities, school districts, institutions of higher education and industry partners throughout British Columbia. The Faculty has an outstanding record in research grants and publications, and in the design and delivery of innovative community-based programs in teacher education and professional development. As a relatively small, generalist counsellor education program, we seek candidates who are able to contribute in these areas and have interests in education across disciplinary boundaries, in keeping with the non-departmental organization of the Faculty.

SFU is a university that serves students of diverse ethnic, cultural, linguistic and international origins and, therefore, interests and or experience in working in multicultural and international settings with students of diverse backgrounds is a desired attribute of applicants.

Applicants are asked to email four separate files (Word or PDF) to
1. A signed application letter that describes the applicant’s qualifications and teaching experience, and potential contributions to the wider Faculty.
2. A current curriculum vitae.
3. The names and contact information of three referees. Please do not ask referees to send letters of reference in advance.
4. A scholarly publication.

Deadline for applications is June 30, 2024. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.

Faculty salaries at SFU are based on the salary scales bargained between the University and the SFU Faculty Association. A reasonable estimate of the salary range for a continuing full-time lecturer position is $84,049 – $98,057. The University and the SFU Faculty Association have recently reached a new agreement. New salary scales will be released as soon as possible. To access the most up-to-date salary scales, please refer to the Faculty Relations website here.

Simon Fraser University is an institution whose strength is based on our shared commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty, staff and our community.” SFU is committed to ensuring no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications. Consistent with this principle, SFU will advance the interests of underrepresented members of the work force, including Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized persons and women; embrace gender and sexual diversity; ensure that equal opportunity is afforded to all who seek employment at the University; and treat all employees equity.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Under the authority of the University Act, personal information that is required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be collected.
