We have the following faculty position (at any rank) available at the
University of Delaware and are particularly interested in recruiting
biomedical engineers who could form alliances between our Mechanical and
Electrical Engineering Departments:


The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical
Engineering at the University of Delaware invite nominations and
applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the general areas of
(1) Clean energy and energy storage, (2) Nanotechnology, (3) Bioengineering,
and (4) Micro-robotic networks.

Each faculty position will hold joint appointments in the Department of
Mechanical Engineering (ME) and the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering (ECE) and will become part of a broad interdisciplinary research
program within the College of Engineering. Nanotechnology initiatives are
supported by a fully equipped new state-of-the art 7,000 sq ft clean room
for nano-fabrication with over $10M/year in research expenditures. Some
nanotechnology work is done in our Center for Composite Materials, which
boasts $8 million of research funding per year and 240 affiliated faculty,
staff, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students and interns.
Bioengineering activities are closely coupled to the inter-disciplinary
effort at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute that encompasses research,
education, and economic development in the life sciences with emphasis on
human health, complex environmental systems and biomaterials. This $120M
initiative involves a 72,000 sq ft state-of-the-art biotechnology facility.
In addition, the new faculty can be a part of our Center for Biomedical
Engineering Research, which has 33 associated faculty members and many NIH
grants, including an NIH Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)
award. The solar, fuel cell and other clean energy research at UD is world
renowned, having over $9M/year in research expenditures, and supported by
state-of-the-art fabrication facilities.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in mechanical, electrical, or computer
engineering, or closely related physical sciences. Successful candidates are
expected to have demonstrated excellence in innovative research and show the
potential for high quality teaching and mentoring. The appointment is
anticipated to be at the tenure-track assistant or associate professor
level, however, qualified candidates at all levels will be considered.

Applicants should send a CV, a statement of research and teaching interests
and achievements, and a list of at least four references to: ECE/ME Faculty
Search Committee, 140 Evans Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716.
Application material should also be electronically submitted to
fsearch@udel.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and will
continue until the position is filled. The University of Delaware is an
equal opportunity employer.
