The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver campus, is looking for a candidate to fill a two-year full-time Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Fellow position, starting in September 2023. The candidate will take on a leading role in the design, implementation, and assessment of a transformational pedagogical strategy for Engineering curricula to be implemented through new learning modules in engineering programs, and the redesign of existing courses, with a focus on the development and integration of sustainability and equity, diversity, inclusion, and Indigeneity (EDII) content. This will include the development of new classroom training activities, lecture materials, and assessments that will be implemented in several courses, including for large-scale (400+ students a term) Professional Practice courses.
