These appointments normally require a Ph.D. degree in a relevant discipline, and successful teaching experience (including laboratory teaching). If you are interested in being considered for one or more of these positions, or for any other sessional opportunities that may arise, provide a c.v. and a covering letter outlining your teaching experience and mentioning the course(s) and/or subject areas for which you would like to be considered.
