College of Engineering
University of Saskatchewan
Faculty Position – Imaging
The College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan in association with the Global Institute for Food Security (GIFS) and the Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Global Food Security are pleased to invite applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor appointment in imaging. The University of Saskatchewan is establishing a world-class program to develop and transfer agricultural innovations to both developing and developed areas of the world for the purpose of ensuring food security. The CERC program in Global Food Security is building a multidisciplinary research team consisting of 4-5 faculty positions and an additional 30-40 postdoctoral, graduate student, and research technician positions. The team’s research disciplines will span the biological and physical sciences, including plant molecular biology, physiology and genetics, engineering, computer science, soil science, and microbiology. While the discoveries from this multidisciplinary research are expected to benefit Canada, they also have the potential to enhance agriculture in food production frontiers such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Disruptive technologies are needed to ensure food security in view of sharply increasing human needs. A logical approach to achieving such goals will involve the channeling of groundbreaking research advances across multiple disciplines in the physical and biological sciences.

Reporting to the Principal Investigator, the Research Assistant I will maintain and build technologies for precision agriculture systems to improve fruit yield and quality in wild blueberry fields throughout Atlantic Canada.
We are looking for individuals with research experience broadly in the area of energy and environmental systems engineering with a focus on biomass. Individuals applying for this position should have an interest and research experience in modelling biomass-based energy conversion systems, specifically in the conversion of forest-based biomass or biomass waste generated by the forest industry to fuels and chemicals. The candidate should have experience developing techno-economic models for the estimation of the viability of these types of energy systems. The individual should also have some experience in modeling biomass conversion processes using relevant tools (e.g., Aspen Plus).
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.
