The Department of Communication & Languages in the School of Arts & Social Sciences at CBU invites applications for a Lecturer in Communication. This is a 12-month Limited Term with the possibility of an extension, commencing in January 2023.
One of Canada’s youngest and most ambitious universities, CBU recognizes its location on Cape Breton Island as part of Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. CBU offers a comprehensive set of liberal arts, science, and professional programs and a unique commitment to community, economic development, aboriginal learning, and research into many aspects of environment and culture. Currently home to approximately 5000 students, CBU’s vision of higher education allows students to pursue diverse fields of study in programs with national reputations in final year student satisfaction, faculty-student interaction, and employability.
CBU delivers an authentic multicultural experience to all who become part of its community. Our faculty bring passion to their teaching and research, and we are known for our smaller class sizes as well as our friendly and inclusive culture. Strong community involvement and a spirit of entrepreneurship enhance CBU’s position in post-secondary education.
Excellent teaching is a priority at CBU. Candidates must be qualified to teach courses in the areas of business, workplace, and public communication. While Communication 5105: Workplace Communication is the primary teaching assignment, the successful candidate will be encouraged to offer courses within their areas of expertise. Standard course loading for this position is 3-3. The successful candidate will have opportunities to deliver courses on campus, in-community, and online. The search committee will rank very highly candidates who have a demonstrated experiential learning teaching style and focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Previous teaching experience at the undergraduate level and a willingness to teach in closely related areas of study and/or other faculties are a strong preference for this position.
Candidates will require a master’s degree or professional accreditation equivalent to a Master’s degree, or have completed all of the requirements for a related PhD but for an unfinished dissertation.
Related Master’s degree or professional accreditation equivalent to a Master’s degree, or have completed all of the requirements for a related PhD but for an unfinished dissertation.
CBU teaches programs on campus, off campus in locations across and outside of Canada, and on-line.

While these opportunities may not be available equally for all faculty positions in all programs, a clear willingness to teach in different modes and locations will be noted as part of your application.
Applicants are expected to demonstrate potential and commitment with regard to teaching, research/creative/scholarly activities and service to Cape Breton University, community and profession.
The union affiliation of this position is with the Cape Breton University Faculty Association.
Applications must be received by November 30, 2022.
