Queen's University - Tenure Track Faculty in Mechatronics
Employer: Queen's University
Closing Date: March 31, 2020
Location: Kingston, ON
The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor with specialization in mechatronics, with a preferred starting date of July 1, 2020.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering, or a related discipline, prior to the preferred start date of this appointment. The main criteria for selection are academic and teaching excellence. Professional engineering licensure in Canada, or the eligibility to obtain licensure, is a requirement. Note that all forms of engineering licensure in Canada are considered acceptable (e.g. P.Eng., temporary engineering licence, provisional engineering licence, etc.). The successful candidate will provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding. The candidate must also be able to teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, demonstrate an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs, and provide evidence of an ability to work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary and student-centered environment. One notable example is the opportunity to seek membership with the Ingenuity Labs Research Institute, which brings together researchers from across the engineering disciplines and the University to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and innovation. The Institute’s focus and expertise spans a continuum: from mechatronic devices, robotics, and cyber-human systems to artificial intelligence and machine learning. The successful candidate will also be expected to make contributions through service to the department, the Faculty, the University, and/or the broader community. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience
