Biological Engineering Tenure Track Faculty Position
School of Engineering, University of Guelph

We invite applications for a full-time tenure-track position in Biological
Engineering commencing August 1, 2003. The intent is to appoint at the Assistant
Professor level. Applicants should have a PhD degree in Bioengineering,
Biological Engineering, or a related engineering field with demonstrated
research interests in preferably one or more of the following areas:
biomaterials, tissue engineering or cardiovascular engineering. The successful
applicant is expected to establish a strong, externally funded research program
and to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses in the school's engineering
core program as well as the Biological Engineering stream. The applicant is also
expected to supervise MSc, MEng and PhD students. Applicants must be a
Professional Engineer or be qualified and prepared to become a registered
Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario. Though not required,
industrial experience is considered an asset.

The School of Engineering has 22 faculty, 15 staff, approximately 660
undergraduate students (30% of whom are female) and about 100 graduate students.
It currently offers accredited undergraduate programs in biological
engineering, engineering systems and computing, environmental engineering, and
water resources engineering.

The University of Guelph is renowned for its strength in the biological sciences
and is among the most research intensive universities in Canada, with scholarly
research funded by grants and contracts of about $106 million annually.
Repeatedly recognized as the top ranked comprehensive university in Canada,
faculty can achieve both a high quality of life and excellent career growth
opportunities. With an enrolment of over 15,000 full-time undergraduate and
graduate students, it remains small enough to foster a friendly and informal
atmosphere, yet large enough to offer the diversity and challenge of a much
larger university.

Deadline for applications is March 31, 2003. Candidates should submit a
curriculum vita to Dr. Lambert Otten, Director, School of Engineering,
University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1. Fax: 519-836-0227 Email:

The University of Guelph is committed to an employment equity program that
includes special measures to achieve diversity among its faculty and staff. We
therefore particularly encourage applications from qualified Aboriginal
Canadians, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and women.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and
permanent residents will be given priority.
