The University of Manitoba is seeking applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes. These chairs were established by the Government of Canada to foster world class research excellence in Canadian Universities (www.chairs.gc.ca).
With a reduced teaching and administrative load, the Chair will be expected to pursue a vigorous research program in the field of additive manufacturing of metals and ceramic materials and processes based in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering. The CRC chair has been created to take advantage of a new state-of-the-art University characterization facility (www.materials.umanitoba.ca), which has been funded through partnerships with SFR, FEI, GE, CIC, Western Economic Diversification, the Province of Manitoba and the University of Manitoba, and in addition an extensively equipped Department of Mechanical Engineering Materials and Manufacturing laboratory. The addition of this Chair will be a critical step in building capacity and establishing a world-class research environment in the University of Manitoba’s strategic priority area of New Materials and Technologies.
