Assistant or Associate Professor
Department of Biosystems Engineering, Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, University of Manitoba
Position # 25490 (NSERC Chair) and 25489 (Professorial)
The Department of Biosystems Engineering is accepting applications for a tenure-track or tenured Assistant or Associate Professor and an NSERC Associate Industrial Research Chair in the area of in-bin grain quality management. Research may focus on the development of sensor technologies for in-bin detection of grain quality problems, or development of data analysis techniques and algorithms to enable automated control of grain management systems. It is expected that the Chair will complement existing research expertise within the Department of Biosystems Engineering and work collaboratively with University of Manitoba researchers, and with Agricultural & Agri-Food Canada Cereal Research Station scientists, to utilize the research infrastructure in the state-of-the-art Canadian Wheat Board Centre for Grain Storage Research to research problems associated with the handling, storage and processing of cereals, oilseeds, and pulses. In addition to working with the current industry partner for this IRC (OPIsystems Inc.), the Chair should actively engage other companies, organizations, and producer groups as a means of growing the grain storage research program at the University of Manitoba. The Chair will have a reduced teaching and administrative load, but is expected to contribute to undergraduate teaching in the area of grain storage management or instrumentation.
