Concordia University seeks to appoint a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier 2, a research-intensive tenure-track faculty position, in Nanomaterials for Sustainable Energy. The selected candidate will receive a joint appointment as a full member of both the Department of Physics and the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, which are units in the Faculty of Arts and Science, and the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science, respectively.
We are seeking candidates with specialization in subfields including but not limited to experimental and computational research in nanomaterials and nanosystems (their growth, processing, assembly, measurement, testing, modeling) for applications in energy storage, renewable energy production, photocatalysis and electrocatalysis. Research at the interface between the Physics and Engineering of nanomaterials towards developing sustainable energy solutions are sought. The selected candidate will be expected to develop a strong independent research program, supervise several graduate students, secure significant external funding, and establish collaborations with members of both the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering and the Department of Physics, as well as with external partners. The candidate will be expected to teach in both departments and teaching duties will include courses both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Concordia University is strongly committed to achieving equity, diversity and inclusion throughout the institution and recognizes the value of achieving inclusive excellence in both teaching and research contexts. We offer a truly collaborative, multidisciplinary, and diverse academic environment, including extensive state-of-the-art research facilities in nanomaterials research.
