Job description: 

Royal Roads University is seeking expressions of interest for Associate Faculty positions in the School of Environment and Sustainability, Faculty of Social and Applied Sciences. We are specifically looking for Associate Faculty interested in teaching the course ENSC 304 Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences (April 30-May 18, 2018) in the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management Program.

Please note - Associate Faculty are not employees; rather, they hold limited-term contracts to teach individual courses in our programs.

Royal Roads University is located in Victoria, British Columbia.  Its mandate is to offer professional degree programs with a focus on applied research. With a reputation for innovation, Royal Roads University is a leader in online delivery and primarily attracts students who are working professionals. Our programs are delivered on-line, blended on-line with on campus residency, or face to face. 

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management (BScEM) is a two-year, interdisciplinary program that combines three intensive three-week on-campus residencies with online learning at a distance. This blended delivery model allows students to complete their degree (years 3 and 4) while continuing to work. The program provides the skills, knowledge and tools to identify and assess the qualitative, scientific, and technical components of environmental issues.

The course description for ENSC 304 Atmospheric Ocean Sciences is found at the link below. It is a blended course, meaning some of the course is on-line and some of it face-to-face on campus at Royal Roads University.
