We develop engineering and IT leaders and advanced technologies for a sustainable future and partner with industry and government. MSE combines its considerable disciplinary breadth with partner expertise to address society’s critical problems.

The ELU is now undergoing a transformation to be more focused on staff development and support.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Engineering, IT or equivalent, have a demonstrated track record of research publications in an engineering or IT discipline and/or in education, and possess strong leadership credentials as well as the ability to work collaboratively to introduce teaching innovations and support teaching staff in their development.
