While outstanding candidates in all areas of EECS
will be considered, we are especially interested in
those with strong abilities to develop and teach
courses in systems areas to complement the
Department’s existing strengths. Systems areas
include, but are not limited to: computer
architecture, operating systems, embedded
systems and allied areas.
The Department of Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science is one of the leading academic
and research departments in Canada, with 45
research-active faculty members, offering a range
of undergraduate programs in Computer Science,
Digital Media, Computer Security, Electrical
Engineering, Computer Engineering and Software
Engineering, as well as research-intensive MSc,
MASc and PhD degrees.
Solving our greatest challenges takes more than technical talent alone. The world needs engineers
with passion and perspective – or, as we call them at the Lassonde School of Engineering, Renaissance
Engineers TM. The Lassonde School of Engineering graduates students who • Think in big systems not little
silos • Design with people in mind • Understand real world consequences.
Established in 2012, the Lassonde School of Engineering is a highly ambitious $250-million academic
start-up at York University. The School currently offers 12 undergraduate programs in Engineering,
Computer Science and Earth & Space Science, with student numbers set to expand to 2,000 over the next
five years. The Lassonde School’s new $100-million home – with zero lecture theatres – opens in summer
2015. Further information is available at http://lassonde.yorku.ca/.

Faculty Appointments ( 2 positions)
The successful candidates for both positions will have a first degree in a field related to the position, a PhD in a closely
related engineering discipline, a track record of excellence in teaching, and a demonstrated interest in engineering
education. Priority will be given to candidates who are licensed as Professional Engineers in Canada.
Applicants should complete the online application process at http://lassonde.yorku.ca/new-faculty/. A complete
online application shall include a cover letter specifying which position applying for, a detailed CV, a teaching and
curriculum development statement, three sample professional publications (research and/or teaching), and contact
information for three professional references.
Complete applications must be received by 15 March 2015. The appointments are expected to commence on
1 July 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter. All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval.
York University is an Affirmative Action (AA) employer and strongly values diversity, including gender and sexual diversity,
within its community. The AA program, which applies to Aboriginal people, visible minorities, people with disabilities,
and women, can be found at http://yorku.ca/acadjobs or by calling the AA office at 416.736.5713. All qualified
candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
The Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and Earth and Space Science and Engineering (ESSE)
are each seeking an outstanding candidate for an alternate-stream tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate
Lecturer level, to teach relevant core areas of engineering and serve as Graduate Attributes Coordinators.
The Lassonde School of Engineering has embraced the assessment of Graduate Attributes as one means of continuous
improvement of its undergraduate engineering programs. Duties of these new positions are expected to evolve over time,
but, in addition to teaching relevant engineering courses, responsibilities will include mapping of Graduate Attributes across
the curricula, identification of assessment opportunities, development of assessment tools, collection and analysis of student
performance data and recommendations for program improvement, in partnership with the Departmental Curriculum
Committees. These Lecturers will, therefore, work collaboratively in a School-wide implementation of Graduate Attributes,
linking our vision of continuous program improvement with the student experience.
Earth & Space Science
While outstanding candidates in all areas of ESSE will be considered,
we are especially interested in those with strong abilities to develop
and teach courses in space and geomatics engineering to complement
the Department’s existing strengths. These areas include, but are not
limited to: space systems engineering, space hardware development,
earth observations remote sensing, geographic information systems,
and global navigation satellite positioning.
The Department of Earth and Space Science and Engineering is home
to nearly 30 faculty members, 300 undergraduate students and over
100 graduate students. We offer several unique and world-class
graduate and undergraduate programs, including Canada’s only
Space Engineering program, Ontario’s only Geomatics Engineering
program, and a renowned Atmospheric Science & Metrology
program. Our research strength is characterized by multidisciplinary,
innovative, world-class research activities spanning from planetary
science to satellite technologies, atmospheric studies, GIS and
