Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science

Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Environmental Systems Engineering

Situated in beautiful Wascana Park, one of the largest urban parks in North America, the University of Regina is a comprehensive institution, emphasizing excellence in teaching and research, as well as public service. Experiential learning and cross disciplinary teaching are strongly supported.

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science presently offers five-full programs in Electronic, Environmental, Industrial, Petroleum and Software Systems Engineering that are accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. We also offer M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. programs and other interdisciplinary graduate programs. The faculty offers unique Co-operative Education and Internship programs and has approximately 1400 undergraduate students and almost 250 graduate students (of which about 70 graduate students are in Ph.D. programs). The Faculty has a strong commitment to providing an excellent "systems approach" to engineering education for our students. Each program has a unique implementation of the systems theme, founded on the common underlying goal of producing engineering graduates with a strong base of technical knowledge and with the breadth of complementary skills that successful professional engineers should have in the workplace. The faculty enjoys close collaborative relationships with industry and government research laboratories. These include the Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC), and the Saskatchewan Research Council, both of which are located in Regina Research Park, adjacent to the campus. More information on the Faculty can be found on our website at: www.uregina.ca/engg/.

The Environmental Systems Engineering (EVSE) program offers studies in the areas of water resource, regional infrastructures, waste management, and air pollution control from a systems perspective. The program covers specialized environmental systems engineering courses and also provides teaching support in general engineering courses.

Applications are invited for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. Your colleagues are exceptional researchers with impressive records of obtaining tri-council grant funding so a demonstrated commitment to research is required. The ideal candidate will be expected to develop a research program using geomatics and remote sensing methods in one or more EVSE areas such as environmental monitoring, hazard assessment, resource identification, land management, and civil infrastructures. Consideration will be given to candidates with research related to First Nations issues and with relevant industry experience. The candidate is expected to teach existing EVSE courses and develop new courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The EVSE program operates in a strong team environment and the successful candidate must be able to contribute to this workplace.

Applicants must possess an earned Ph.D. degree in a civil or environmental engineering or an EVSE related discipline and an undergraduate degree in civil or environmental engineering. Appropriate credentials for registration as Professional Engineer in Saskatchewan are required. Review of applications will begin immediately and will close on 30 October, 2018.

To apply, please go to http://www.uregina.ca/hr/careers/opportunities.html and submit a cover letter (1-page), a current curriculum vitae, research philosophy and plan (2-page), teaching philosophy and effectiveness (2-page), and photocopies of all post-secondary transcripts. Please be prepared to provide official transcripts and a list of three references with complete contact information. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.

The University of Regina is committed to an inclusive workplace that reflects the richness of the community that we serve.
