The Department of Geomatics Engineering and The Centre for
Bioengineering Research and Education (CBRE) at the University of
Calgary (http://www.ucalgary.ca/) seek to fill a tenure track position,
effective *July 1, 2007*, at the Assistant Professor Level. The CBRE is
a multi-faculty unit located in the Schulich School of Engineering (SSE)
responsible for promoting biomedical engineering research and teaching
biomedical engineering courses. The selected candidate is expected to
provide leadership and vision to the bioengineering core of the
undergraduate program and further development of related research and
graduate programs in medical imaging and biometrology. The appointee
will be affiliated with the Department of Geomatics Engineering and is
expected to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses in biomedical
engineering and in other related geomatics engineering courses. Strong
interpersonal skills are necessary.

Applicants must hold a PhD and have demonstrated research excellence in
some of the following areas: photogrammetric techniques; 3D precise
reconstruction and registration; fusion of biomedical imaging modalities
(e.g. optical, X-ray, MRI, CT); digital image analysis and feature
extraction; and their novel application in biomedical engineering. The
applicant is expected to develop a strong research program and should be
capable of attracting external funding for these research activities and
graduate student support. The selected candidate will be required to
register as a Professional Engineer in the Province of Alberta.

The Department of Geomatics Engineering is actively involved in all
aspects of geomatics engineering and comprises 20 faculty members, some
90 graduate students and 50 students in each year of the undergraduate
program. State-of-the-art geomatics engineering equipment and computer
facilities are available. Related information can be found at

The University of Calgary is a co-educational, non-denominational,
government supported institution with a student population of about
27,000. The city of Calgary itself has a population of over one million

the most beautiful parts of the Rocky Mountains.

Applications should include a detailed curriculum vitae and a complete
list of publications. Three letters of reference should be mailed
directly to:
