The iSchool (School of Library, Archival and Information Studies) at the University of British Columbia invites applications for two full-time lecturer positions, beginning July 1, 2018.
Applicants should have knowledge to teach in one or more of the following areas: digital technologies, digital preservation, information systems, digital libraries, librarianship, management of information organizations, and/or library services.
Lecturer positions are non-tenure track appointments – one position is an initial three-year term, the second position can be filled for a term of up to three years. A full-time lecturer is responsible for the equivalent of 24 teaching credits (i.e. eight 3-credit courses).
The School offers a Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS), Master of Archival Studies (MAS), a joint MAS/MLIS, a multidisciplinary Master of Arts in Children’s Literature (MACL), and a doctorate in library, archival and information studies leading to the awarding of a Ph.D. The School also offers courses at the undergraduate level in the Bachelor of Media Studies Program. The iSchool is an internationally recognized school, located at UBC, a premiere research institution in Canada.
