Assistant Professor Faculty Position at WPI in Biomechanical Engineering

Deadline: Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2006 and continue
until the positions are filled.

As part of a strategic institutional plan to leverage emerging facets of
technology and engineering with the life sciences, the Biomedical Engineering
(BME) Department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) invites
applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor
level. This position is expected to be filled beginning July 1, 2007.

Individuals with expertise in biomechanical engineering (with an emphasis on
biomaterials, cell/tissue mechanics, mechanobiology, cryobiology,
microfluidics, or tissue engineering) are encouraged to apply. Current
biomechanical areas of interest on the WPI campus include: tissue mechanics,
orthopedic and dental biomechanics, cardiovascular biomechanics, tissue
engineering and biomaterials, biotransport, rehabilitation engineering, and
medical device design. The Department has specialties in biomaterial/tissue
interactions, tissue mechanics, tissue engineering, biosensors,
bioinstrumentation, and magnetic resonance imaging.

Applicants are expected to have a strong commitment to high quality
undergraduate and graduate engineering education through teaching and
advising, develop strong partnerships with the medical device/biotechnology
industry, as well as maintain an active and funded research program.
