The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario, invites applications for two positions at the level of Assistant Professor (in special cases, may be considered at the level of Associate or Full Professor). The Department desires applicants with a recent PhD, or one nearing completion, in chemical engineering, nuclear engineering or a closely related field and an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering or closely related field. For the position in Chemical Engineering, preference will be given to candidates with an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering. The candidate should have a strong background in chemical engineering fundamentals, and should be able to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in chemical engineering or at the graduate level in nuclear engineering. The candidate needs to apply for a professional engineer license in Canada, and/or register as an engineer in training within two years of employment. The candidate must be able to establish and maintain an independent and competitively funded creative research program.
The Department is involved in research funded by national granting councils, other government agencies and industrial partnerships at an average level of $7M/yr. Current research activities in the chemical and nuclear engineering fields include: transport phenomena, non-invasive imaging, polymer processing, nanomaterials, metallurgy, catalyst development, environmental and bioprocess engineering, carbon engineering, nuclear fuel design, reactor physics, nuclear materials, radiation protection, and non-destructive testing. More information on the Department can be found at Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada.
Industrial or postdoctoral experience in chemical or nuclear engineering is desirable. This position is a bilingual position, which requires an ability to read, comprehend, communicate, and teach in both official languages (linguistic profile BBB/BBB). Should no candidate meet these requirements, an eligibility list may be established and candidates who apply for this competition may be assessed to staff similar positions with various language requirements. The candidate is expected to supervise MASc, MSc, and PhD graduate students and professional/technical research staff.
