McMaster University is located on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Nations and, within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.
McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering invites applications for three tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, located on the main university campus to begin on July 1, 2022. Exceptional candidates at the ranks of Associate Professor or Professor may also be considered.
The department is interested in candidates with specialized expertise at any interface between electrical and computer engineering and the health sciences but has a particular interest in those experience in the clinical applications of biomedical engineering research, and those with expertise in the areas of neurotechnology or implantable devices.
The successful applicants must have or be very near completion of a PhD in electrical and computer engineering, biomedical engineering, or a related discipline, by the time of the appointment. The applicants must also demonstrate a record of excellence in teaching and research and 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.

Relevant research and development experience in industry would be an asset. The successful applicants are expected to enrich the learning environment for our students in a variety of ways, such as innovative methods for course delivery and curriculum evolvement, as well as contribute to and enhance the culture of the department.
