Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) is a community of learning grounded in scholarship and academic freedom, preparing students to be independent thinkers, ethical leaders and citizens for the common good. CUE is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for work, study, and living. We actively promote dignity for all, rejecting action and language that are harmful to mutual respect.

CUE is situated on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton’s historic Highlands neighborhood. Supporting a student body of over 3,000, we are known for our small class sizes and excellence in teaching. These features, and our diverse student population, provide an excellent opportunity for engaging with students in a sustained and nurturing way unique within the Canadian university system. CUE is also an institution that values research in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and management.

CUE’s Faculty of Science is seeking two (2) candidates for the position of Assistant Professor in Information Technology, in the Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

The Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences has a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program in Information Technology as well as a 16-month Master of Science in Information Technology program. These programs are geared to fulfill the demand for preparing graduates who will help to improve the province-wide prospect for excellence in computer-based delivery of services and information.
