The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is nationally recognized for its emphasis on teaching excellence, experiential and applied education, community engagement, and Indigenization. UFV is the school of choice for over 15,000 students. With six campuses and centers, UFV offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the arts, sciences, and professional studies, as well as trades and technology education, university preparation and continuing education.
At UFV, we are dedicated to changing lives and building community.

A British Columbia "Top Employer", we are committed to providing a welcoming, inclusive, and dynamic learning and working environment that is fair and respectful of everyone. Our culturally diverse employee and student populations reflect the local, national, international and Indigenous communities we serve. If you see yourself as a lifelong member of a community that values and nurtures innovation and creativity, cultivates leadership and citizenship, and where success builds on success, you belong at UFV.
The department of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 1, 2019, subject to budgetary approval. Interested individuals who currently hold a rank higher than Assistant are also encouraged to apply, as the Dean may take into account the successful candidate's current position and experience.
We are seeking collegial, energetic and innovative individuals who have an outstanding ability to teach at the undergraduate level and to communicate effectively with students both in and out of the classroom. The successful candidate must be able to instruct across a broad range of the undergraduate statistics curriculum. There may be graduate level teaching opportunities in the future. The ideal candidate will be able to develop new and innovative programs and courses, apply technology in the delivery of our programs and courses, and integrate his or her research or scholarly activity into teaching.
While we are primarily a teaching-oriented university and department, the successful candidate will be expected to maintain a program of scholarly activity or research, preferably one which involves students, or is community-linked, and to commit to participation and engagement in professional development activity at the institution and/or in the community. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to service within the department, the university at large and the community.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Statistics, or one near completion. UFV is focussing on growing the areas of agriculture, health sciences, environmental studies and digital media communications, while the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Data Analysis and an Applied Statistics Minor. Applicants with academic experience in any area will be considered, but preference will be given to those with a background in Applied Statistics whose expertise supports any of these areas. Preference will also be given to applicants with statistical consulting experience in academia and/or industry.

Candidates should submit curriculum vitae; evidence of teaching excellence including (if available) student evaluations; one-page statement of teaching philosophy including (if available) examples of innovative approaches to teaching and course design; one-page statement of proposed research program or scholarly activity; one-page summary of statistics courses taken at undergraduate and graduate level; and names and contact information for three referees.
