All applicants including international students must be permitted to work in Canada until at least the final day of the academic year (end of April).
UBC Okanagan hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from women, visible minority group members, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity, and others who may contribute to further diversification of ideas. However, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
