A part-time Sessional Lecturer position is available with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia to teach the following course in 2014/15 Winter Term:
EECE 460 (3) Control Systems
Relationships between system parameters and system responses for linear control systems. Design specifications for dynamic and steady-state performance and realization by use of feedback control. Robust design of PID controllers and multivariable controllers.
Candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent degree) in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a closely related discipline with an emphasis on Control Systems. Excellent communication skills are expected. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience teaching similar or related courses. Experience with graduate student mentorship is preferred since the candidate may be required to instruct junior graduate students.
Please submit applications to email@example.com. Applicants should include an up-to-date curriculum vitae (detailing post-secondary teaching experience), a statement of teaching philosophy, and the names, addresses and contact information of three people who can be contacted as references.
All positions are subject to funding and will be governed by UBC’s Agreement on Conditions of Appointment for Sessional Faculty Members.
UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply. We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities.

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is seeking an internationally recognized leader in quantitative medical imaging for a new Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Quantitative medical imaging is defined as the extraction of quantifiable features from medical images for the assessment of disease, injury, or chronic condition [Radiological Society of North America]. Quantitative imaging includes the development of anatomical, functional, and molecular imaging acquisition protocols, data analyses and display methods. These features permit the validation of image-derived metrics with anatomically and physiologically relevant parameters, including treatment response and outcome.
The Chair holder is expected to be an outstanding researcher acknowledged as a world leader in the field, and to have a track record fostering collaborative and interdisciplinary research. The Chair holder will articulate a strategic plan for developing an exemplary research program that complements ongoing research programs and engages with local, national, and international research networks. Applicants for the Chair position must be a full professor (or equivalent) in the applied or natural sciences with a proven academic record. Applicants must also have demonstrated excellence in teaching. The Chair holder will have a reduced teaching load but will still be expected to participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching activities.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering currently comprises a complement of 54 faculty members, including two Tier I CRCs and 4 Tier II CRCs, with approximately 20 members performing research in areas related to biomedical technologies. The Department is currently home department for about 450 graduate students, making it the largest graduate program on campus, and approximately 1000 undergraduate students enrolled in computer and electrical engineering programs with different specialization options. It has strengths in research areas related to the Chair such as ultrasound imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, image-guided interventions, and image processing. Over $5 Million of infrastructure was bought in the last few years to support biomedical research. There are also nearby world-class institutions in related disciplines: BC Cancer Agency (including Centre for Lymphoid Cancers, Deeley Research Centre on Immunology, Michael Smith's Genome Sciences Centre, Advanced Therapeutics, Cancer Control Research, Cancer Endocrinology, Cancer Imaging, Molecular Oncology and the Breast Cancer Program), Vancouver Prostate Centre (a UBC Centre of Excellence), Centre for Drug Research and Development, UBC MRI Research Centre, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, and Medical Physics (CAMPEP accredited). The Chair holder is expected to play a leadership role in bringing together the diverse group of researchers in quantitative medical imaging in these institutions and local industry. The goal is to increase UBC's visibility and research capability in quantitative imaging by leveraging the strength of existing research programs.
The University of British Columbia, established in 1908, has in recent years been consistently rated among the top 30-40 research-intensive universities in the world. UBC's Vancouver campus is located on the point of a peninsula looking out towards the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by forest. Vancouver is a vibrant cosmopolitan city that has a wealth of recreational opportunities and is considered one of the most livable cities in the world.
To apply, please submit your cover letter and CV online at http://hr.ubc.ca/careers/faculty. Applications should include a detailed curriculum vitae, teaching dossier, research plan, and names and contact details of four references (contacted only after permission). Applications will be reviewed immediately and will be considered until the position is filled. The individual selected will be subject to review and final approval by the CRC review process.
The Biomedical Signal and Image Computing Lab (BiSICL) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is looking for an excellent Post Doctoral Fellow to join our team, ideally in September 2014 (possibly January 2015). The applicant is expected to have an outstanding CV in the area of medical image computing and a proven track record including top tier publications, e.g. MICCAI, IPMI, MedIA, IEEE TMI. The ideal candidate will have excellent software development skills, is a team player and is interested in collaborative research spanning both theory and clinical applications.
BiSICL is a multidisciplinary research facility at UBC dedicated to computational research in biomedical imaging. Our lab's main objectives are to create, develop and translate innovative techniques for automated processing, analysis, understanding, and visualization of structural and functional medical imaging data so that they can be applied in a clinically-focused, disease-specific manner. The uniqueness of the research conducted at BiSICL stems from the close and direct collaboration with clinicians spanning literally from the lab to the bedside.
