We are a research-intensive department with over 300 graduate students at the Masters and PhD levels.
Our substantial strength in sustainable energy engineering stems from a conscious and ongoing effort by the department to create focused activity in this area. We created the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Engineering program undergraduate program in 2008 and the Sustainable Energy graduate program in 2010. Since then we have positioned ourselves as central to the University's dedication to scholarship that contributes to a sustainable future.
There are excellent opportunities for collaboration with industry, government institutes and laboratories, and established faculty members in the Department and across campus. Information on the Department is available at http://carleton.ca/mae.
If you have a Ph.D. in engineering and you are dedicated to teaching, research and the engineering profession, you will be a great fit. You will be able to develop research collaborations with industry, become an effective undergraduate and graduate teacher and graduate-student supervisor, and be able to attract funding to support independent research programs yielding high-quality peer-reviewed publications. Membership in a Canadian professional engineering association is necessary at the time of appointment or within two years of appointment.
Please send a curriculum vitae, the names of three referees, and statements on your teaching and research interests. In addition, please identify any past experiences in supporting equity, diversity and inclusion in your previous institutional environment. Please send your application as a single PDF file to: Professor Ron Miller, Chair, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Email: Hiring.MAE@carleton.ca.
