Sustainable Energy Engineering: Lecturer, Writing, Ethics and Economics Simon Fraser University Faculty of Applied Sciences Canada

Faculty of Applied Sciences

The Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) at Simon Fraser University is expanding.  With a current count of 3700 undergraduate students, 500 graduate students and 120 faculty members, the Faculty is about to embark on an exciting growth period, and we fully expect the next five years will place the disciplines within our faculty among the best in the world.  Core drivers for the Faculty include a commitment to excellence at the highest level possible, engagement with industry, a responsibility to drive social change, and empowering our students, staff and faculty to leverage diversity and collaboration to increase innovation.  

As part of its growth, the Faculty is launching a new program in Sustainable Energy Engineering (SEE), with its first students arriving in Fall 2019 and housed in a newly constructed, state of the art engineering expansion to the SFU Surrey campus.   Our goal is to create a program and culture where innovation and inclusion go hand in hand.   Applications are invited for a continuing teaching position in the SEE program, as part of the faculty complement that will launch this exciting initiative.  Applications will be considered at the ranks of Lecturer and Senior Lecturer.
