  • 2 Biomedical Engineering Faculty Positions - University of Calgary


    The Centre for Bioengineering Research and Education (CBRE) at the
    University of Calgary seeks to fill two tenure track positions 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 successful candidates will be expected to complement the
    current biomedical engineering group in the University, to participate
    in joint projects, and to develop a strong research programme using the
    extensive experimental and numerical analysis facilities available. The
    appointees will be expected to teach at both graduate and undergraduate
    levels in their relevant area of biomedical engineering and in other
    related engineering and/or kinesiology courses. Strong interpersonal
    skills are necessary. One of the two positions will have a half-time
    cross-appointment into the Faculty of Kinesiology while both positions
    will be affiliated with one or more Departments within the SSE.
    Applicants who can teach within the disciplines of Civil and Geomatics
    Engineering are particularly encouraged to apply.

    Applicants must hold a PhD and have demonstrated research excellence in
    bioengineering. The selected candidates are expected to provide
    leadership and vision to the bioengineering core of the undergraduate
    curriculum and to develop further research and graduate studies in this
    area. Research interests of applicants should lie within the broad
    spectrum of bioengineering, but some preference will be given to at
    least one applicant having capabilities in cardiovascular mechanics. The
    applicants should have expertise in one or more of the following areas;
    anatomy, physiology, cardiovascular mechanics, biomechanics,
    biomaterials, cell and tissue engineering, and techniques for precise
    reconstruction and manipulation of biomedical data. The selected
    candidates must be able to teach, between them, undergraduate SSE
    courses related to anatomy and physiology, structural mechanics, and
    techniques for manipulating biomedical data, along with a biomechanics
    course within the Faculty of Kinesiology. Preference for the full
    engineering position will be given to those eligible for, or already
    P.Eng. Industrial experience would be an asset. Appointments will
    commence July 1 or August 1, 2006.

    The University of Calgary is one of Canada’s top seven research
    universities. The University is located in the vibrant City of Calgary
    near Banff National Park and the Rocky Mountains. The 40 year old
    university is growing rapidly, with sponsored research revenues more
    than doubling in the past five years. The Schulich School of Engineering
    recently became the only named Engineering Faculty in Canada as part of
    a $50 million endowment.

    Applicants should apply by April 3, 2006, providing a c.v. and a concise
    statement of research and teaching interests, addressing in particular
    the required teaching needs, to:
    N.G. Shrive, Acting Director
    Centre for Bioengineering Research and Education, ICT 203
    University of Calgary
    2500 University Drive NW
    Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 1N4

    or by email to:

    Three references should be included with the application, in
    countersigned sealed envelopes, or e-mailed directly (with hard copy to
    follow) to:

    All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and
    permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Calgary
    respects, appreciates, and encourages diversity.
