The Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University has a reputation for innovative programs, cutting-edge research, leading faculty, and aspiring students. The Faculty has approximately 180 faculty members, 4,500 undergraduate and 1000 graduate students.

McMaster University is renowned for its research and education programs in the fields of Health Sciences and Engineering.  In partnership with the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering recently established a new Integrated Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences undergraduate program, which is complemented by graduate programs in the McMaster School of Biomedical Engineering.

Within this context, the Department of Engineering Physics is seeking an outstanding individual for a tenure-track or tenured position in Bio-innovation (Biomedical Devices and Systems). The appointment is intended to be at the Assistant Professor level, but exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor or Professor level may also be considered.

Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Physics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related engineering or science discipline, and have expertise in the field of biomedical devices and systems. Possible research topics may include, but are not limited to, optoelectronics, photonics, plasmonics, electronics, and microfluidics; miniaturized photonic components such as microring resonators, photonic crystals, integrated optical waveguides, and nanostructured materials; implantable electronic, photonic and optoelectronic devices; biosensors based on electronic, photonic or optoelectronic structures; biomedical instrumentation development; and biomimetic macro-, micro-, or nano-scale devices.

Consistent with McMaster’s vision of being a research-intensive university, the successful applicant will be expected to develop a dynamic externally funded research program. 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 biomedical community, will be essential. Successful candidates will ideally make use of the facilities in the Centre for Emerging Device Technologies, the Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research, the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy, and/or the McMaster Biophotonics Facility. The successful candidate is expected to explore potential research collaborations within the University, especially in the Faculty of Health Sciences. The candidate is expected to work effectively with individuals from diverse communities and cultures.

A demonstrated or strong potential for excellence in teaching and curriculum development in Engineering Physics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels is essential. The successful candidate will be expected to apply for a full or limited licence from Professional Engineers Ontario.

In addition to competitive salaries, McMaster University provides one of the best benefit packages amongst Canadian universities, which includes supplementary medical and dental coverage, a defined benefits pension plan, long term disability insurance and family-friendly supports such as a child care allowance, and funded pregnancy/parental leaves.  University policies include provisions for such leaves in the tenure process and in annual merit evaluations.  The Faculty of Engineering has additional supports in place, such as funding from the Engineering Life Event Fund, to help maintain continuity in scholarship during pregnancy/parental, medical, or family-related leaves.    

The Faculty of Engineering promotes a nurturing and inclusive environment where opportunities are made available for personal growth and professional development (http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/fda/).
McMaster University’s beautiful campus is at the north-west end of Hamilton on the western end of Lake Ontario, between the Niagara Escarpment, conservation lands, and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Hamilton, with a population of over 500,000, is a vibrant community with easy access to Toronto and the Niagara region. It is located at the northern tip of an ecological zone commonly called the Carolinian Forest that encompasses the southernmost portion of Ontario and occurs nowhere else in Canada. As a result, Hamilton is home to many unique species of plants and animals that only occur here because the summer climate approaches that of the mid-Atlantic region in the eastern United States.

Review of applications will begin June 25, 2017.  Applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.  The start date is negotiable and is anticipated to be in the interval January 1 to July 1, 2018.
