Exigences et conditions

Due to the unusual worldwide COVID-19 pandemic crisis, candidates should note that while we anticipate in-person teaching for the 2021-2022 academic session, there is a possibility that classes will be shifted to a hybrid or fully online model. Therefore, the ability to be present on campus as well as provide online courses will be imperative. The selected candidate will benefit from a variety of resources (Moodle Hub, and the ITS-TLC instructional support team) made available to them to support them in the delivery of the course(s) online.

Applications, including a cover letter and curriculum vitae, can be sent by email to the Chair of the Department, Vicki Chartrand by May 1, 2021. Thank you for your interest.

Candidates who anticipate needing accommodation for any part of the process may contact Human Resources at In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents, but all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

Despite the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, Bishop’s University plans to offer its 2021-2022 courses primarily in person. The selected candidates for Fall 2021 should however be prepared to move their courses to an online format should Public Health require it. The selected candidates will benefit from a variety of resources (Moodle Hub, Proctorio exam software and the ITS-TLC instructional support team) made available to them to support them in the delivery of the course(s) online. Also, teaching days could include Saturdays. Although Bishop’s University is planning its 2021-22 academic year to primarily be in person, we will comply with government guidelines and recommendations.

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.

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.
