View Full Version : Assistant Professor of Biomechanical Engineering

11-03-2004, 02:13 AM

A tenure-track faculty position in the field of biomechanics is available in
the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware.
Acceptable candidates will be expected to establish a strong research
program within the broad area of musculoskeletal biomechanics (e.g.,
biomechanics of connective tissue, the neural control of movement,
computational modeling and simulation, medical imaging, rehabilitation
engineering, etc.) and teach courses in mechanical engineering.

The Mechanical Engineering Department (www.me.udel.edu) has 22 faculty
members, 80 graduate students, and 393 undergraduate students. Faculty
members in our Center for Biomedical Engineering Research
(www.cber.udel.edu) currently have $18 million in active research grants,
including an NIH-funded Center for Biomedical Research Excellence grant.
Many of these grants are for collaborative projects between faculty members
in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Physical Therapy. New
faculty members will have the opportunity to interact with many related
clinical and research facilities on or near campus, including UD's
outpatient Physical Therapy Clinic, the Sports Research Laboratories, the
A.I. du Pont Children's Hospital, the Center for Composite Materials, and
the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. In addition to having an appointment
in Mechanical Engineering, the successful candidate also could have an
appointment in our interdisciplinary graduate program in Biomechanics &
Movement Science that attracts doctoral students with backgrounds in
engineering, clinical sciences, and kinesiology.

The University of Delaware is a publicly supported private university with a
total enrollment of about 18,000 students. It is located in the attractive
community of Newark, which is close to large industrial, academic and
research institutions in Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and Washington,
D.C. For information about the university, visit www.udel.edu.

Submit a detailed CV, a teaching and research plan, and the names of at
least three references to Biomechanics Faculty Search Committee Chair,
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Delaware, 126 Spencer
Laboratories, Newark, DE 19716. The committee will commence reviewing
applications on January 15, 2005 and will give preference to applications
submitted by that date. The CV and letters of reference (if obtained) shall
be shared with departmental faculty. Inquiries can be directed to Professor
