The Department of Statistics seeks a current UBC postdoctoral fellow (from any department) to join the multidisciplinary teaching team for SCIE 300 in the Fall 2019 term.
SCIE 300, Communicating Science, is jointly offered by the departments of Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, and Statistics. As its name suggests, the course promotes effective communication and presentation skills in science.
General interests in scientific communication are required, and experience in communicating statistical information would be an asset. The experience gained in this teaching role could be very valuable in future academic endeavours.
A stipend would be provided via a postdoctoral teaching appointment on top of the fellows' existing postdoctoral research appointment. The teaching effort and stipend are equivalent to that for solo teaching of a one-term, 3-credit course.
To express interest in this role, please send a CV, and names and contact information for three references, to search [at] stat.ubc.ca by May 14, 2019.
