The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in CAD/CAM. The starting date will be July 1, 2007, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field and will be expected to register as a Professional Engineer in British Columbia. The Department has an Industrial Research Chair (IRC) in High Performance Virtual Machining supported by NSERC and Pratt & Whitney Canada. In addition to the regular faculty appointment, the successful candidate will be appointed as NSERC-Pratt & Whitney Canada Associate Industrial Research Chair for a five-year period following the successful renewal of the IRC. He/She will be expected to participate in virtual machining research. We are particularly interested in candidates who have strong practical engineering skills and experience, and who are keen to teach Engineering Design courses at the undergraduate level and CAD/CAM courses at the graduate level. Further information on the department is available at, and information on the employment environment in the Faculty of Applied Science is available at

The University of British Columbia hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. The position is subject to final budgetary approval. Applicants should submit a detailed resume, a statement (1-2 pages) of research and teaching interests, and names and addresses (fax/email included) of four referees to Professor Nimal Rajapakse, P.Eng., Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada V6T 1Z4.

Lectureships at Cambridge University

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for three University Lectureships. They should have a proven record of scholarship in experimental and/or theoretical research involving Engineering Materials, Solid Mechanics, Mechanics of Biological Materials or Computational Mechanics. The lecturers will be expected to contribute directly to the research and teaching of the Mechanics, Materials and Design Division of the Engineering Department. This Division enjoys an international reputation for high-quality, innovative research in materials design and characterisation, including novel micro-architectured materials, bulk high-temperature superconducting materials, and increasingly in biological materials.

The posts will involve contributing to the teaching of the undergraduate course in Engineering, leading to the BA and MEng degrees. The successful candidates will take up the appointments 1 October 2006 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment will be for 5 years in the first instance with the possibility of reappointment to the retiring age subject to satisfactory performance. The current pensionable scale of stipends is in the range of £25,565-£39,303 per annum.

Further particulars and an application form may be obtained from the Personnel Office, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1PZ, UK (tel +44 (0) 1223 332615, fax +44 (0) 1223 766364, email

Applications should be sent to this address no later than by Friday 9 June 2006 and include a completed form, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a one-page statement of research interests and future plans. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Norman Fleck (telephone +44 (0)1223 332650 or email The University is committed to equality of opportunity
