The successful candidate will show leadership, innovation and excellence in research and teaching in one of the following areas: Synthesis and Characterization of Advanced Materials (e.g. battery materials, catalysts, alloys, composites, etc.); or Process and Extractive Metallurgy. Applicants are expected to have a PhD or equivalent in Metallurgy, Materials Science and Engineering, or a related field, by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter, demonstrated excellence in research and some teaching experience. Evidence of excellence in research can be demonstrated by research of an internationally competitive calibre, as evidenced by publication in leading journals in the field, presentations at significant conferences, and strong endorsements by referees. Experience in teaching will be demonstrated through teaching accomplishments, letters of reference and the teaching statement submitted as part of the application.

Our department has had a long history of strength in chemical process metallurgy, and our intent is to revitalize this area, while at the same time aligning with the key strategic directions of sustainability and energy. The candidate's work will be expected to complement our existing strengths in metallurgy and materials processing.

This position is one of several to be offered over the next several years as part of a strategic thrust across the entire Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering to build strength in areas related to sustainability in mining, mineral processing, extractive metallurgy, and materials processing.

Postdoctoral or industrial experience is an asset. The successful candidate will be expected to initiate and lead an independent research program of international caliber, and to teach at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. Eligibility to register as a Professional Engineer in Ontario is strongly desirable. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
