Tenure Track Faculty Position in Smart Biomedical Technologies

McMaster University

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Smart Biomedical Technologies
McMaster University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Engineering Physics

McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics, located on the main university campus to begin on or before July 1, 2023. Candidates with a superior track record of contributions in biomedical applications, demonstrated leadership in research and innovation, and a strong international reputation may be considered at the rank of Associate or Full Professor.

Position Description

The successful applicant will teach both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses. Therefore, a demonstrated or strong potential for excellence in teaching and curriculum development in Engineering Physics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is essential. Consistent with McMaster’s position as a research-intensive university, the successful applicant will be expected to develop a dynamic externally funded research program, supervise graduate students, and foster existing or new collaborations with other Departments and Faculties. Research excellence will be reflected in successful mentoring of graduate students, extramural grant acquisition and publication in high quality peer-reviewed journals. Relevant industrial experience, the ability to interact with other research groups (on- and off-campus), and interest in creating and maintaining ties with major industrial players within the broader community, will be essential. Applicants must demonstrate a willingness and ability to contribute to the Department’s collegial and collaborative intellectual community as well as University-wide inclusive excellence goals and priorities.

Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in Engineering Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Biophysics, Electrical Engineering, or a related discipline, and have expertise in the field of biomedical devices and systems. Successful candidates will be outstanding emerging scholars with a demonstrated potential to achieve a significant international reputation in the next five to ten years.

The successful candidate will be expected to apply for a full or limited license from Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO).

The Department of Engineering Physics is seeking an outstanding individual for a tenure-track or tenured position in Biomedical Engineering. This position builds upon a strategic focus area for the Department in biosensing and biophotonics, and in the Faculty through its School of Biomedical Engineering. The position is at the rank of Assistant Professor and located on the main university campus. Consideration for a position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor will be given, based on commensurate experience. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to readily access the facilities in the Centre for Emerging Device Technologies, the Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research, the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy, the Centre for Advanced Light Microscopy and/or the McMaster Biointerfaces Institute. The successful candidate is expected to develop research collaborations within the University, especially in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Possible research topics may include but are not limited to areas within biomedical engineering that leverage advanced device technologies in optoelectronics, photonics, electronics, and microfluidics; for example, using nanoscale elements such as FETs, NEMS, micro-ring resonators, photonic crystals, plasmonics, metamaterials or nanostructured materials within micro-, or nano-scale devices and systems. The research topic should have strong linkages to smart biomedical applications such as implantable, disposable, or wearable biosensors, biomedical instrumentation or biomimetics.
