Successful applicants will teach both undergraduate and graduate level courses. They will also be expected to establish a strong externally-funded research program, supervise graduate students and foster existing or new collaborations with other departments and faculties. 

A range of perspectives leads to better insights and innovation, and McMaster Engineering’s diverse and inclusive community is a key factor in our success. We welcome experts in Canada and beyond to be part of this next generation of growth and innovation in the Faculty of Engineering,” adds John Preston, McMaster Engineering's associate dean, research and external relations. 

About McMaster Engineering

McMaster Engineering has a strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and research with impact, with an emphasis on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in categories such as good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, and industry, innovation and infrastructure and climate action 

Earlier this year, McMaster ranked 17th in the world in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings and number one in Canada for good health and well-being and decent work and economic growth. The rankings recognize the important contributions universities make to their communities, countries and on an international scale. 

McMaster Engineering is committed to providing a supportive, inclusive environment that celebrates big ideas and commercialization and working with industry partners around the world to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. 

The Faculty's mission to push the boundaries of discovery and innovation plays a significant role in helping McMaster University earn its reputation as one of Canada’s most innovative universities.  

As Canada's most research-intensive university, our commitment to research continues to be reflected in our rankings. Most recently McMaster was named one of the world’s top 70 universities in the 2021 Times Higher Education rankings. As well, 14 academic disciplines at McMaster Engineering are ranked among the best in Canada by ShanghaiRanking. 

Innovation extends to McMaster Engineering’s approach to education. In September 2020 after a two-year pilot, McMaster Engineering formally launched The Pivot, an historic $15 million initiative marking the largest transformation of our curriculum, experiential learning and the classroom experience in the 62-year history of the Faculty. This year, more than 1,100 first-year engineering students are experiencing our new interactive course called Integrated Cornerstone Design Projects in Engineering, which integrates concepts previously taught in four different courses into a single, seamless, project-based learning experience, allowing students to work in teams, design prototypes and solve real-world problems. 

By transforming the engineering curriculum, reimaging the learning environment and amplifying experiential learning, The Pivot takes a project-based and experiential learning approach to developing future-ready graduates with design-thinking and entrepreneurial mindsets.
