Full/Distinguished Professor in Biomechanics

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas
invites applications and nominations for an outstanding individual in
the area of Biomechanics at the level of Full Professor. A candidate
with the appropriate qualifications may also be appointed as a
Distinguished Professor. This Full/Distinguished Professor will allow us
to add breadth and depth to our existing research and teaching
activities in biomechanics. Although all areas of biomechanics will be
considered, primary consideration will be given to applicants with
experimental and/or computational experience in biomaterials, motor
control, tissue engineering, biomedical instrumentation, cellular
mechanics, or medical imaging. Salary and benefits are competitive, and
commensurate with qualifications and experience. Additional requirements
can be found at http://www.engr.ukans.edu/~kume/open_positions.htm.

Applicants must have a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical
Engineering, or a closely related field. Candidates should have an
excellent record in engineering education, research and professional
service; including nationally acknowledged scholarly publications and an
externally funded research program; as well as demonstrated
collaborative accomplishments in both research and teaching activities.
Thus, the successful candidate should be capable of leading an
internationally recognized research program in biomechanics and have
commensurate teaching skills at both the graduate and undergraduate

The University of Kansas is a Carnegie I research institution with a
history of excellence in education, research, and service, and is a
member of the American Association of Universities. The Department of
Mechanical Engineering is composed of 14 faculty members, 185
undergraduates, and 35 graduate students. The department is developing
biomechanics as a focus research area and presently has three faculty
members with externally funded research programs investigating
orthopedic biomechanics, bone mechanics, and biodynamics. Other
departmental research areas include computer-aided manufacturing,
computational mechanics, composite materials, and thermo-fluid science.
