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 Sciences.

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

Further details on the CRC Program can be viewed at:

Applicants must demonstrate a successful record of research, reflected in
extramural grant acquisition and publication in high quality peer-reviewed
journals. The recruited individual 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 Faculty of Health Sciences.

Send an application letter, resume, statements on research and teaching
interests, and the names and addresses of at least three references to:

Professor S. Habibi, Chair
Department of Mechanical Engineering, JHE Rm. 316
McMaster University
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
L8S 4L7

Applications will be accepted until the position has been filled.

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.
