Assistant/Associate Professor in Biomechanics

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas
invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position in the
area of Biomechanics at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The
new faculty member will allow us to add breadth to our existing research
and teaching activities in biomechanics. Applicants for this position
should have demonstrated strong research interests in the area of
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

Applicants must have or receive their PhD in Biomedical Engineering,
Mechanical Engineering, or a closely related field within six months of
the appointment. Assistant Professor applicants should have
demonstrated high potential for success in engineering education,
research, and professional service while Associate Professor applicants
should have an outstanding record in these areas. New faculty members
will be expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate level ME
courses, develop graduate level biomechanical engineering courses, and
support departmental growth. New faculty members will also be expected
to establish a strong externally funded research program, supervise
graduate student research, and foster collaboration with other
departments including those at the KU Medical Center.

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.
