The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Lassonde School of Engineering, is seeking three excellent candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor. Appointments are to commence on July 1, 2016, subject to budgetary approval.
Two positions will complement the Department’s existing strengths. Applications are welcomed from individuals with research experience in the traditional areas of mechanical engineering such as thermofluids and solid mechanics, but preference will be given to the area of sustainable energy systems, micro-systems (e.g. micro-fluidics, MEMS, and micro-sensors), advanced manufacturing and materials (e.g. additive manufacturing, multifunctional materials, etc.), and bio-systems (e.g. mechanics of bio-systems and medical devices). One position will be in the field of Mechatronics (e.g. electro-mechanics, controls, smart systems, and mechatronics enabled product design and development/manufacturing).
Ideas and experience in innovative teaching will be an asset, while a strong research track record commensurate with the rank of appointment is essential. The successful candidates will be required to teach and supervise students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, establish a strong, externally-funded research program, assist in the administrative tasks of the department and the university, and in due course
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a closely-related field, and be licensed or eligible for registration as a Professional Engineer in Ontario and be eligible for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Candidates will have a demonstrated track record of technical, academic (excellence, or promise of excellence, in teaching and scholarly research) and professional achievement appropriate to the level of their appointment.
Applicants should complete the on-line application process at http://lassonde.fluidreview.com. A complete on-line application should include: (1) a cover letter clearly indicating the rank for which the candidate wishes to be considered; (2) a detailed curriculum vita highlighting career achievements, areas of research, teaching experience, list of publications and awards/honours, as well as research grants and students supervised (the last two items are especially important for the Associate Professor position); (3) three signed reference letters.; (4) a statement of research plans detailing the intended projects to be pursued, envisioned resources, and external funding ideas to allow executing the research plans (maximum 3 pages); (5) a statement of teaching plan especially concerning the “Renaissance Engineer” vision for the department at the Lassonde School of Engineering (maximum 2 pages); a sample of three most significant scholarly work. Complete applications must be received by November 30, 2015.
About the Lassonde School of Engineering
Solving our greatest challenges takes more than technical talent alone. The world needs engineers with passion + perspective: Renaissance EngineersTM. The Lassonde School of Engineering at York University in Toronto is designed to be the home of the Renaissance Engineer: a place where students are free to explore their passions and gain different perspectives from the world around them.
Established in 2012, the Lassonde School of Engineering has a full spectrum of undergraduate and graduate programs in engineering and computer science, and a thriving research enterprise. The School was founded with a $25-million donation from mining entrepreneur Pierre Lassonde, and is led by founding Dean and Renaissance Engineer Janusz Kozinski. There are currently 2000 undergraduates in 11 programs, 200 graduate students, 100 professors and 4 academic departments. The School’s new home, with state of the art research and innovative teaching spaces, opened in September 2015.
York University is an Affirmative Action (AA) employer and strongly values diversity, including gender and sexual diversity, within its community. The AA Program, which applies to Aboriginal people, visible minorities, people with disabilities, and women, ca be found at http://www.yorku.ca/acadjobs or by calling the AA office at 416-736-5713.
