Department of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering, Schulich

The Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in the Schulich School of Engineering is currently seeking two full-time tenure-track Instructors.

An instructor is an academic staff member whose primary role is instruction. Although there are no research requirements for instructors, research related to engineering education and pedagogy is strongly encouraged. In addition to their teaching load, instructors are expected to participate in undergraduate project supervision and in administrative duties, such as committee service. Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field. In exceptional cases applicants with a M.Sc. will be considered provided they have relevant industrial experience of three to five years or more. The successful candidate must have a strong interest in undergraduate (and possibly graduate) education and in teaching and learning pedagogy. A demonstrated ability to teach both small and large classes over a wide range of undergraduate courses in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering is preferred. Candidates must be eligible for registration as a professional engineer with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA). Candidates should have strong oral and written English communication skills. All program instruction is in English.

The department currently has 34 full-time faculty members, offers B.Sc., M.Eng., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and has over 500 undergraduate and over 180 graduate students. The department is committed to excellence in research and education. Innovative research programs are well established in Advanced Manufacturing and Design; Applied Mechanics; Biomechanics; Energy, Environment, and Thermofluids; Materials; MEMS; Mechatronics, Automation, Robotics, and Controls. The department is also an active participant in the Energy & Environmental Specialization offered by the Centre for Environmental Engineering Research & Education (CEERE) and the Biomedical Engineering Specialization offered by the Centre for Bioengineering Research & Education (CBRE). Detailed information is available on our website at

Interested individuals are encouraged to submit:

i) a cover letter; ii) a curriculum vitae; iii) a statement of teaching interests and philosophy; iv) a teaching dossier; and v) the names and contact information of three references.

Applications should be sent electronically to: Dr. Bob Brennan, Chair of the Search Committee Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, c/o Ms. Karen Undseth at
