Description

The School of Nursing at CBU invites applications for tenure-track positions in Nursing at the rank of Assistant Professor. These positions will commence in December 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. We are looking to continue to build upon our talent in our expanding Nursing Department and are searching for multiple talented individuals who have real passion for making an impact in their field. As long as this posting is still online it means we are still growing, so don’t wait and apply today as review of applications will commence mid November 2021.

One of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities, CBU recognizes its location on Cape Breton Island as part of Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. CBU offers a comprehensive set of liberal arts, science, and professional programs and a unique commitment to community, economic development, aboriginal learning, and research into many aspects of environment and culture. Currently home to approximately 5000 students, CBU’s vision of higher education allows students to pursue diverse fields of study in programs with national reputations in final year student satisfaction, faculty-student interaction, and employability.

CBU delivers an authentic multicultural experience to all who become part of its community. Our faculty bring passion to their teaching and research, and we are known for our smaller class sizes as well as our friendly and inclusive culture. Strong community involvement and a spirit of entrepreneurship enhance CBU's position in post-secondary education.

CBU is seeking progressive, energetic candidates with a commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and research. The primary position responsibility will be to teach our concept-based curriculum to undergraduate nursing students. In addition, the successful candidates may be required to participate in nursing practice with groups of students in various practice settings, simulation, and/or labs.

Successful candidates will have:

  • a graduate degree in nursing;
  • a completed PhD or other Doctoral degree in a health-related field; applicants currently enrolled in a PhD or doctoral program will be considered. Master’s prepared applicants with a willingness to complete a Doctoral degree will be considered. Professional development funding assistance may be available to support study;
  • an active practicing RN license with the Nova Scotia College of Nursing (or be eligible for) prior to commencement of this position;
  • demonstrated excellence in teaching; and
  • demonstrated evidence of a beginning program of scholarship, including research, publications, and the ability to obtain external research funding.

Preference will be given to qualified Indigenous peoples and African Nova Scotians or those with African Canadian descent. Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in the online application form.

CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across and outside of Canada, and on-line. The university and its partners will therefore provide opportunities for faculty members to teach in different modes in different locations as part of their regular workload. While these opportunities may not be available equally for all faculty positions in all programs, a clear willingness to teach in different modes and locations will be noted as part of your application.

Applicants are expected to demonstrate potential and commitment with regard to teaching, research/creative/scholarly activities and service to Cape Breton University, community and profession.

The union affiliation of this position is with the Cape Breton University Faculty Association.
