Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Industrial Engineering
Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering


The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering & Architectural Science at Ryerson University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Industrial Engineering. The expected starting date is July 1, 2018, subject to final budgetary approval.


Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree (or be nearing completion) in Industrial Engineering, Operations Management, or a closely related field. Postdoctoral experience is an advantage. The selected candidate must be eligible to register as a professional engineer (P.Eng.) in the province of Ontario. Candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to upholding the values of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion as it pertains to service, teaching, and scholarly, research or creative activities.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to our undergraduate and graduate programs.

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering welcomes applications from those who would contribute to the further diversification of our staff, our faculty and its scholarship.

The Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) department is home to about 850 undergraduate and 150 graduate students, and one of the top Engineering Departments contributing to research activities at Ryerson University.

Located in the heart of one of the world’s most culturally and linguistically diverse urban centres, Ryerson’s high quality programs and scholarly, research and creative activities extend beyond the walls of the university.


Ryerson is deeply connected to the city and the world beyond, attracting talent, opportunities and global connections to the Greater Toronto Area. Programs and curriculum are not static; they are relevant to changing careers, professions and scholarly disciplines. Students, faculty and staff challenge the status quo with new solutions and new ways of thinking. Longstanding partnerships with community, industry, government, and professional practice drive research and innovation that responds to real-world problems.


Ryerson recognizes that creativity and innovation should not be contained. Its diverse learning community collaborates across disciplines and with external partners, taking smart, calculated risks to turn promising ideas into tangible solutions, products, processes or services that make a positive and meaningful impact upon society. Students are trusted to learn. In their programs and through experiential learning opportunities students solve complex problems, think critically and communicate clearly, gaining the confidence and knowledge to build careers, enter diverse professions or to launch their own ventures and create jobs.
