Faculty Opportunity in Biomedical Engineering

The Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the
University of Notre Dame has
an immediate, tenure-track position available for an individual
interested in contributing to
academic programs and pursuing research at the intersection of emerging
topics in bioengineering
and traditional mechanical engineering disciplines. The ideal candidate
will have research and
teaching interests in biomedical engineering related to solid mechanics
and biomaterials,
including but not limited to: tissue engineering, cell and cell
membrane mechanics, bio-interface
science, mechano-biology and functional adaptation, fluid structure
interactions, multi-scale or
multi-functional biomaterials, nanotechnology, or medical devices. The
candidate should have the
interest and ability to teach existing courses in traditional
engineering solid mechanics and
materials as well as courses in biomechanics, biomaterials, and
bioengineering. The successful
candidate should be committed to developing a strong extramurally
supported research program,
and to participating in the development of new education and research
initiatives at the
department and college level. Candidates with exceptional experience
may be considered for
appointment with tenure at the Associate or Full Professor level. In
addition to activities within the department, opportunities for
collaboration exist throughout the College of Engineering and College
of Science.

The University of Notre Dame is a private, Catholic, university with a
doctoral research
university (extensive) Carnegie classification. Notre Dame has an
enrollment of over 11,000
students and it is consistently ranked in USN&WR as a top 20 national
research university. It is
located near South Bend, Indiana and it is a short drive from the Lake
Michigan shore and the
greater Chicago area. Faculty in the Department of Aerospace and
Mechanical Engineering have
developed strong research interactions with the Indiana University
Medical School located in
Indianapolis and with several orthopaedic device manufacturers located
in nearby Warsaw, IN.
Ongoing research is supported by NIH, NSF, CDC, the State of Indiana
and various industrial
partners. The College of Engineering is currently building a new
research laboratory that will be
completed in spring 2006 and integrate faculty, graduate students and
research facilities in the
bioengineering area. Facilities for animal research are available in
the Freimann Life Science
Center with a licensed veterinarian and support staff. The Department
of Aerospace and
Mechanical Engineering and the College of Engineering are committed to
excellence in this area
based on cross-departmental interdisciplinary research and interactions
with nearby medical
schools, hospitals and industrial partners. More information on the
Department is available at
