Our department is committed to fostering interdisciplinary research. Many faculty in our
department are collaborative members of partner institutions within UBC (such as the
School of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute for Computing, Information and
Cognitive Systems) and several have joint appointments with other units on campus. We
are open to joint appointments in this hiring round.

UBC's Vancouver campus is situated at the tip of Point Grey on the unceded lands of the
Musqueam people, surrounded by forest, ocean and mountains. Vancouver is consistently
ranked as one of the most diverse cities in Canada, and one of the most livable cities in the
world. UBC seeks to recruit and retain a workforce that is representative of Vancouver's
diversity, to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer students richly varied
disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and learning.

All of our work is shaped by our values: professionalism and integrity; scholarship and
teaching excellence; commitment to students; partnerships and collegiality; initiative,
innovation, and willingness to change; community, the environment, and sustainability. We
hold these values as an integral frame of reference to inform our decisions and actions at
every level and in every situation.
