    Faculty Position in School of Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie
    Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

    The School of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) at Dalhousie University
    is seeking a tenure-track faculty member in biomechanics to join our
    vibrant faculty group at the rank of Assistant or Associate
    Professor. The SBME is a departmental unit in the Faculties of both
    Engineering and Medicine. It is a multidisciplinary unit whose goal
    is to contribute to enhanced health care, to develop new biomedical
    technology and understanding, and to improve training of highly
    qualified personnel to work in academic, health care and industrial

    The SBME is a graduate school offering degrees in Biomedical
    Engineering at both the Master's and PhD levels. The objective of the
    MASc in Biomedical Engineering is to train engineers and
    bioscientists so they can (i) apply engineering methodologies to
    understanding biomedical systems and (ii) develop new biomedical
    technologies. The PhD program, in addition to the above objectives
    aims to train independent, fully competent investigators who will
    lead their own research teams. As well, the School contributes
    substantially to undergraduate training in Engineering through
    elective courses and degree options in Biomedical Engineering.

    The School has a state-of-the-art Dynamics of Human Motion laboratory
    including 3-D motion capture, multiple force plates and multiple-lead
    electromyographic systems. It also has multiple servo-hydraulic
    testing systems and related biomechanics and biomaterials assessment
    infrastructure suitable for modern biomechanics research. In
    addition, there is strong support from the clinical community (e.g.
    orthop├Ždic surgery, rehabilitation medicine) for collaborative
    research, as well as opportunities for collaboration within SBME and
    other units at Dalhousie University. Indeed, the successful applicant
    would join an established team of clinical and basic science
    researchers who share interests in these areas. (http://

    We are seeking applications from highly motivated individuals who
    have strong research interests in the broad areas of: (i) the
    biomechanics of human motion, (ii) the biomechanics of
    musculoskeletal disease, (iii) its orthopaedic surgical treatment and/
    or (iv) rehabilitation treatment. The successful candidate will have
    a PhD, demonstrated research excellence through peer-reviewed
    presentations and publications, and demonstrated ability to teach
    effectively. Ideal candidates would illustrate strong funding
    potential from CIHR, CFI and NSERC. Candidates are preferred who are,
    or will become, eligible for registration as professional engineers
    in Nova Scotia. Our priority is excellence and all researchers (in
    biomechanics of human movement) are encouraged to apply and will be
    seriously considered.

    The successful applicant should have a thorough understanding of 3-D
    kinematics and kinetics of human motion, orthop├Ždic surgical
    biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering. They will be expected to
    teach related courses at the graduate (SBME) and undergraduate
    (Engineering) levels.
    All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians
    and permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University
    is an Employment Equity/Affirmative Action employer. The University
    encourages applications from qualified Aboriginal people, persons
    with a disability, racially visible persons and women." For more
