Review of applications will begin on May 25th, 2021. Please note that only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
Due to the unusual worldwide COVID-19 pandemic crisis, candidates should note that there is no guarantee courses in 2021-22 academic year will be in person.

Also, teaching days could include Saturdays.
Given the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Quebec and its “Direction générale de la santé publique” have issued guidelines and recommended practices to prevent the contagion from spreading and to protect the public’s health. Bishop’s University is committed to complying with these guidelines and recommendations for the purposes of its teaching mission.
Although Bishop’s University is planning its 2021-22 academic year based on a hybrid model, we will comply with government guidelines and recommendations. As such, should the government introduce more stringent measures to respect after the 2021-22 academic year begins, Bishop’s University may have to further restrict physical access to the university campus and order all teaching and evaluation activities to be provided online for the 2021-22 academic year.
To ensure that teaching activities run smoothly this 2021-22 academic year, Bishop’s University is asking professors to make sure that they have access to:
An up-to-date desktop computer, with webcam OR an up-to-date laptop computer with built-in webcam;
Headphones with microphone; and
Access to high speed internet with download speed of at least 7Mb/s (megabit/second) and an upload speed of 3Mb/s which are optimal for participating in video-based online learning.
In the event that you do not have access to a suitable computer and/or high speed Internet, the University will provide access to an equipped space, physically on campus from which to teach, provided the government does not require the university to close because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bishop’s University is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Abenaki people.
