Position Description:

 

The School of Engineering at the University of Guelph began an ambitious expansion program in September 2009.  As a result, faculty positions are required in several areas. The School of Engineering invites applications from outstanding individuals for the following three new tenure track positions at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels.

 

Position 1: Biological/Environmental Engineering
The successful applicant will have expertise at the interface between biological and environmental engineering. The candidate will have an engineering degree in Biological, Environmental, or Chemical Engineering. The ideal candidate will have experience and demonstrated research and teaching accomplishments in areas other than water and wastewater treatment such as: food processing, pharmaceuticals, green chemistry, cleaner production and/or biological remediation.

 

Position 2: Biomedical Engineering  

The successful applicant will have experience and demonstrated research and teaching abilities in areas such as medical image processing and physiological signal processing (e.g., myoelectric, cardiac and EEG). The candidate will have an engineering degree in Biomedical or electrical engineering.

 

Position 3: Bio-Process Engineering
Successful candidates will have experience and demonstrated research abilities in bioprocess engineering and will play a key role in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on mass transfer in bio-process operations, process design and bio-reactor design.  Experience in the pharmaceutical or food manufacturing industry would be an asset. The candidate will have an engineering degree in Biological, Agricultural, or Chemical Engineering.

 

Candidates for all three positions will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a nationally and/or internationally recognized research program funded by external funding sources and provide service to the University and the engineering profession.

 

All applicants must demonstrate excellent research potential as well as strong undergraduate teaching interest and ability. They will be expected to mentor graduate students. They will provide service within and external to the University. Post-doctoral academic/industrial research experience is desired. Preference will be given to candidates who will combine excellence in teaching with a demonstrated capacity to conduct novel, interdisciplinary research that will expand and complement our current research strengths.

 

The School has particular strength and emphasis in design and therefore candidates with strengths in design are desirable.  Eligibility for registration as a Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario is a requirement of these positions at the time of hiring.

 

The University of Guelph has well established and accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Biological Engineering, Engineering Systems and Computing, Environmental Engineering and Water Resources Engineering. In 2009, the School launched a Mechanical Engineering program, and in Fall 2010, Biomedical and Computer Engineering programs were launched. At present the School is comprised of over 37 faculty members, 25 staff and technicians, 1200 undergraduate students and 180 graduate students.

 

The City of Guelph is known for its educational and cultural life and has often been rated as one of the best cities to live in Canada. It is surrounded by rolling farmland, possesses an excellent public transit system and a wide variety of housing possibilities. The City is within easy driving distance of Metropolitan Toronto and recreational areas from the Niagara wine region to Lake Huron and the ski hills of Collingwood.
