Full-time Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology
Simon Fraser University
The Department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology (BPK) invites applications for a full-time Lecturer in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology to commence September 1, 2024 or a mutually agreed-upon date.
Core duties of the Lecturer in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology:
• Teaching: Teach undergraduate laboratory- and/or lecture-based courses in areas including assessment of movement and function, etiology and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, functional anatomy, applied physiological measurements, and active rehabilitation. Contribute to curriculum and program development.
• Service: Serve the Department, the University, and the larger scientific community by contributing to committee work and to departmental initiatives. The candidate’s service work will also involve liaising with professionals in the kinesiology community and potential employers of our Department’s students and graduates, as well as with relevant accrediting, certifying and professional organizations.
The typical workload distribution for Lecturers in BPK is 80% teaching, and 20% service. In carrying out these duties, the successful candidate will advance BPK’s goals to foster equity, diversity, and inclusion by working to eliminate the barriers that impede the ability of department members from historically underrepresented and marginalized populations to achieve their full potential. The successful candidate will foster a positive and inclusive working environment through respectful interactions with all faculty, staff, and students.
The responsibilities, terms, and conditions of employment of faculty are listed in the SFU-SFUFA collective agreement.
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 this role is $84,049.00 to $98,057.00. Note, the expected salary range does not include the value of benefit.
