The University of British Columbia is a global centre for research and teaching that is ranked among the top 40 universities in the world.

Our department is anticipating significant renewal over the next few years as we strengthen key areas in high demand. Our research and teaching activities benefit from strong links to the Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS), the Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory (AMPEL), and the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (QMI), as well as strong collaborations with the Department of Computer Science and other units within the Faculty of Applied Science. The department is situated on UBC’s Point Grey campus in Vancouver, British Columbia. Vancouver is consistently rated one of the world’s most livable cities.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
