Job Description

Durham College is seeking an experienced and motivated professional who shares our commitment to quality and student success. The School of Science and Engineering Technology requires a part-time professor to teach CIVL 1212 – Strength of Materials.

Students learn about the importance of understanding how materials react to the environment in which they are used. This introductory theory course lays the necessary foundation for the more advanced structural design courses. The internal axial load, shear and bending moment on simple structural members is studied. The effects are expressed quantitatively in terms of stress and strain. Students assess the adequacy of typical members, such as beams, columns and shafts to theoretically predict various failure modes in these members. Students carry out a number of experiments that help them to understand and visualize how structural materials behave under various loading conditions.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PART-TIME FACULTY APPLICANTS

Part-time recruitment is ongoing and is dependent on when courses are being taught and the need for faculty to teach.    Part-time faculty teach up to 6 hours per week with varied schedules Monday through Thursday between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm and Fridays between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.
