The Faculty of Science invites applications from qualified individuals who are interested in teaching the following course:

FRSC 4018-91 Evaluative Reporting

The primary goal of Forensic Science is to provide evidence that will ultimately assist the trier of fact (judge / jury) in evaluating the results against the mutually exclusive positions of Crown and Defense.  Evaluative Reporting (ER) is a formal strategy that allows two opposing explanations of scientific findings (Crown and Defense) to be considered both scientifically and mathematically through the use of likelihood ratios. This course introduces students to the principles and use of ER in expert witness testimony.  At the end of this course students will have a formal literature review, an actionable experimental design (which could be performed in the future) and  will have the opportunity to submit their proposal to an operational Forensic Science laboratory with a view to form a collaborative research partnership.  Pre-requisites:  FRSC 2007 and FRSC 2100.  FRSC 3010 and/or LAWS 2190 are recommended.

Course will be taught online.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate should hold a Master’s degree by the date of appointment, a Ph.D. degree is preferred.  Professional experience will be considered for equivalency to academic training.
