  • Repost: Position - Tier II CRC Biomechanical Engineering -McMaster University

    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.
