Chemical & Materials Engineering, University of Alberta Process Systems Engineering & Engineering Statistics Applications are invited for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks. The successful candidates are expected to establish productive research programs in the areas of Process Systems Engineering and Engineering Statistics. We are particularly interested in researchers with demonstrated expertise in multivariate statistical methods, fault detection and isolation, statistical modeling and analysis, and design of experiments, as well as interests in application to energy and natural resources or biomedical engineering. Candidates must have the ability to conduct both independent and cooperative research, develop viable and productive research programs, and to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in chemical and / or materials engineering. The successful candidate will be joining a vibrant, multi-disciplinary community of process systems and control engineering researchers on the University of Alberta campus. Candidates must either hold a PhD in Chemical and/or Materials Engineering, or related field, or expect to receive one shortly after taking up their appointment. The recruited individuals are expected to develop collaborative efforts with groups in the strategic research areas of: energy and natural resources, biomedical engineering, the National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), catalysis and reactor engineering, fuel cells, surface and interfacial sciences. The existing infrastructure to support this research is outstanding, including our departmental high performance computing centre, the WestGrid computing facility, the Alberta Centre for Surface Engineering and Science, the Nanofab and Nano Tools Facilities in the Faculty of Engineering, and the microscopy facilities at NINT, and the exceptional research facilities available in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. Faculty members also have the opportunity to develop strong collaborations industrial and governmental research labs and with operating companies in Alberta. The Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta is one of the premier research-intensive departments of its kind in North America. Our faculty complement is currently 42 with plans in place to grow to approximately 65. We currently have 207 graduate students and 70 other researchers working within our research programs. The research strengths within the department include: process systems engineering and process control, surface and interfacial science, reaction engineering and catalysis, computational fluid dynamics, high temperature fuel cells, and nanomaterials and regenerative medicine. For information about our department, please consult our website at: www.engineering.ualberta.ca/cme/. A curriculum vitae, the names of three confidential references, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, and a statement of current research interests and plans for future research should be sent by March 31, 2008 to: Dr. J.
