    Faculty Positions

    The University of Western Ontario, through its Faculties of
    Engineering Science, Medicine & Dentistry and Health Sciences
    and in partnership with hospitals and medical research
    in London, Ontario, is in the process of establishing a
    Engineering Program and developing graduate and
    undergraduate studies in biomedical engineering. The
    has succeeded in securing funds from the Canada Foundation for
    Innovation to provide the infrastructure needed for
    research in
    Biomedical Engineering.

    Applications are invited for three new tenure track faculty
    positions, one each in the areas of Image-Guided Therapy and
    Surgery, Biomaterials and Human Biomechanics. All positions
    subject to budget approval. It is expected that all
    will be made at the Assistant Professor level but appointments
    will be considered at the Associate Professor rank if
    qualifications warrant such a rank. The successful
    candidates will
    hold an appropriate Ph.D. degree and will be required to
    teach in
    assigned areas, and to supervise graduate students and conduct
    research. Candidates who are registered or are eligible to
    as professional engineers in Ontario are appropriate
    and are encouraged to apply. Those with other suitable
    backgrounds and qualifications are also encouraged to apply.

    The position in Image Guided Therapy and Surgery will deal
    minimally invasive therapeutic and surgical instrumentation
    techniques. Related research is currently carried out in 3D
    ultrasound systems for diagnosis and image-guided prostate and
    liver therapy, image-guided breast biopsy and image processing
    and visualization software for image-guided neurosurgery. The
    investigators have access to world-class imaging
    (MRI, 3D ultrasound, 3D CT and digital x-ray imaging). The
    successful candidate will hold a joint appointment in the
    Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Medical
    Biophysics. The successful candidate will collaborate with
    researchers from the Robarts Research Institute and the London
    Health Sciences Centre.

    The appointment in Biomaterials will be made jointly in the
    Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering and the
    School of Dentistry. The successful candidate will conduct
    research in dental and other implant biomaterials. The
    will have access to research facilities of materials
    engineering and
    in the School of Dentistry.

    The successful candidate in Human Biomechanics will hold a
    joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical and
    Engineering and Faculty of Health Sciences. The successful
    candidate is expected to establish an independently externally
    funded research program in biomechanical analysis of human
    motion; this may include an emphasis in any of sport analysis,
    clinical and rehabilitation applications, ergonomics,
    such as modeling and simulations and EMG etc.

    Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae
    and the
    name of three references to:
