The Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan invites applications from qualified individuals for a Limited Term position at the rank of Instructor or Lecturer for an 18-month term in the Department of Accounting with an anticipated start date of January 1, 2023.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated passion for and experience in teaching accounting at the undergraduate and/or at the graduate level in a post-secondary institution in Canada and is willing to work in a collaborative, collegial environment where teaching expertise is highly valued.

A Canadian professional accounting designation as well as a graduate degree in business is required for appointments at the rank of Lecturer. Prior teaching experience at the post-secondary/professional level is highly desirable. Candidates without a graduate degree in business but with a Canadian professional accounting designation and significant professional and/or teaching experience will also be considered and, if successful, will be appointed at the rank of Instructor.

The successful applicant will thus possess strong comprehensive technical in-depth knowledge of accounting concepts and standards as well as demonstrable effective communication skills. The teaching load will be up to 30 credit hours of courses per academic year (10 courses at 3 credit hours per course). Teaching responsibilities can commence with courses scheduled for the Winter 2023 Term starting January 1, 2023.
