The School of Engineering at the University of Guelph is currently seeking a bright and energetic individual for tenure track position in bio-engineering at either the Assistant or Associate Professor level. Successful candidates will have a background in biochemical or chemical 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 areas would be an asset.
Qualified applicants for these positions will hold a Ph.D. degree in engineering. They will be expected to teach core courses serving all engineering programs and program specific courses. They will provide service within and external to the University. It is expected that each new appointment will develop an independently funded research and development program and will contribute to teaching graduate students. Registration as a Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario or the ability to obtain registration is an essential requirement for this position.
Biological Engineering has been an accredited engineering program at the University of Guelph since 1973. The undergraduate program focuses on the application of engineering analysis and design of biological systems and processes. These include manufacturing processes such as food and pharmaceutical production, bio-conversions to produce new materials and energy, waste treatment processes, biomechanics and ergonomics. It is a unique engineering discipline that integrates life sciences with a general engineering education. In Fall 2010, the University of Guelph launched a new Biomedical Engineering program which combines the engineering curriculum with courses in biomedical sciences.
