Tier II Canada Research Chair (CRC) 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 and has established the McMaster School of
Bioengineering. The school provides excellent opportunities to develop
multidisciplinary undergraduate, graduate and research programs involving
strong collaborations between the Faculties of Engineering and Health

In support to this initiative, the Department of Mechanical Engineering is
seeking an outstanding individual for a Tier II Canada Research Chair (CRC)
in biomechanics.

This tenure-track appointment will be at the level of Assistant or Associate
professor and will commence July 1, 2010. Applicants will hold a doctorate
in Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering, 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 research interest in orthopaedic
biomechanics and tissue engineering. Canada Research Chairs are subject to
review and approval by the CRC Secretariat.
