SaskPower Research Chair in Clean Energy
Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science
University of Regina
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 SaskPower, SaskTel, the Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC), the International CCS Knowledge Centre, and the Saskatchewan Research Council, all of which are located in Regina Research Park, adjacent to the campus. More information on the Faculty can be found on our website at: http://www.uregina.ca/engineering/.
SaskPower is funding a chair in clean-energy research in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, in support of its internationally pioneering work at the Boundary Dam Unit 3 (BD3) Carbon Capture and Storage project.
The SaskPower Chair in Clean Energy is intended to lead a team of researchers in support of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies, and facilitates technology transfer nationally and internationally. Through this Chair, operational data from BD3, along with appropriate models, will be used to demonstrate the engineering and economic sustainability of the current state of CCUS, in comparison to other alternative energy generation technologies. The results will be used as the benchmark for future technological advances in CCUS and other viable energy alternatives.
Applications are invited for a faculty position at the associate/full professor rank for this research chair.
Required is a demonstrated track record of leadership and networking in research and teaching related to clean energy, and in particular CCUS, in terms of innovation, funding support, scholarly publications, technology transfer, and promoting CCUS research and dissemination. A strong commitment to applied research in collaboration with SaskPower and The International CCS Knowledge Centre (an initiative of BHP Billiton and SaskPower) is required.
Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in Chemical, Mechanical, Process, Industrial, Environmental Engineering, or a related engineering field, a proven track record of strong leadership, networking and communication skills. The candidate should also have the appropriate credentials for registration as a Professional Engineer in Saskatchewan.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled, but candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their materials immediately.
To apply, please go to http://www.uregina.ca/hr/careers/opportunities.html and submit a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, and a statement of research and teaching objectives, plans and directions.
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.
