    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.

    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:
