Tenure Track Position in Biomechanics

The Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University recently selected
Bioengineering as an important growth area with respect to interdisciplinary
research and educational programs. The Faculty of Engineering plans to
strengthen its faculty in this area and to spearhead the formation of
McMaster School of Bioengineering. The school will provide excellent
opportunities to develop multidisciplinary undergraduate, graduate and
research programs involving strong collaborations between the Faculties of
Engineering and Health Sciences.

In support to this initiative, the Department of Mechanical Engineering is
inviting applications for a tenure track position in the area of
biomechanics. Appointment will be at the level of assistant or associate
professor. Applicants will hold a doctorate in Biomechanics, Biomedical
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline, and be
registered, or eligible for registration, as a Professional Engineer in
Ontario. Postdoctoral training and/or industrial experience are preferred.
Although all areas of biomechanics will be considered, primary consideration
will be given to applicants with experimental and/or computational
experience in orthopaedics and prosthetic design and function.

Applicants should demonstrate a successful record of research, reflected in
extramural grant acquisition and publication in high quality peer-reviewed
journals. The recruited faculty member will teach both undergraduate and
graduate level courses, develop graduate level biomechanics courses, and
support departmental growth in this area.
He/she will also be expected to establish a strong externally funded
research program, supervise graduate student research, and foster the
already existing collaborations with other departments including the
Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Send application letter, resume, statement of research interests and the
names and addresses of at least three references to: Professor S. Ziada,
Chair, Department of Mechanical Engineering, McMaster University, Hamilton,
Ontario, Canada, L8S 4L7.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens
and permanent residents will be given priority. McMaster is strongly
committed to employment equity within its community, and to recruiting a
diverse faculty and staff. The University encourages applications from all
qualified candidates, including women, members of
visible minorities, Aboriginal persons, members of sexual minorities, and
persons with disabilities.
