Tenure Track Position - Nutrition

The Department of Applied Human Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position in Clinical Nutrition/Nutrition Care. The appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor level. This appointment is subject to final budgetary approval.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Human Nutrition or related field, be a member of Dietitians of Canada, and eligible for registration as a dietitian in Prince Edward Island. Candidates should have evidence of ongoing scholarly activity. Candidates must be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching; the department is seeking an individual who can teach a wide range of courses such as clinical nutrition, nutritional assessment, and sports nutrition.  They should also be able to contribute expertise to students in the dietetic internship program.  Completion of the IOC Diploma in Sports Nutrition would be an asset.

The Department of Applied Human Sciences is an innovative, interdisciplinary department that offers undergraduate degrees in Foods & Nutrition and Kinesiology.  We offer a number of practical options for students that include an integrated dietetic internship and field placements.

The University of Prince Edward Island is recognized as a leading, innovative centre of excellence in learning, teaching, scholarship and research. While it is strongly connected to the vibrant social and cultural environment of Prince Edward Island, it enjoys a reputation that extends far beyond the Island’s shores.

The University is located in the provincial capital of Charlottetown, a bustling tourist destination that boasts the amenities of a much larger city, including excellent theatre, galleries, music, and dining possibilities. A province-wide hiking and biking trail runs right along the UPEI campus, and the National Park beaches and world-famous golf courses are a short drive away. Charlottetown and its surrounding communities offer charming and affordable housing options, a low crime rate, and a semi-rural lifestyle that is second-to-none.

Start Date: July 1, 2018

Application Instructions:
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, research outline, and teaching dossier (including a statement of teaching philosophy, a list of courses taught, and teaching evaluations). They should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to the address below.
