University of Pittsburgh

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh is
pleased to announce a tenure-stream faculty position at the Assistant
Professor level. Our department, ranked nationally in the top 20, has
strong research and educational programs, offering undergraduate (150
students) and graduate (MS, PhD, and MD/PhD; 190 students) degrees. The
Department is located directly across the street from and interacts
closely with the School of Medicine, rated nationally in the top 10 in
NIH funding. In addition, the McGowan Institute for Regenerative
Medicine (www.mirm.pitt.edu ) and
Musculoskeletal Research Center (www.pitt.edu/~msrc) offers many
research opportunities in the areas of tissue/organ engineering and
medical device development. Recent additions to the Departmental
research infrastructure include state-of-the-art laboratory space in the
new Biomedical Science Tower-3, a joint facility housing faculty from
the Schools of Medicine and Engineering. There are three NIH-funded
pre-doctoral training programs in the Department: Cellular Approaches to
Tissue Engineering/Regeneration, Biomechanics in Regenerative Medicine,
and Cardiovascular Bioengineering. Further information about our
faculty and educational and research programs can be found at

We are seeking an individual with expertise to complement and extend our
existing strengths in biomechanics and cellular, tissue, and organ
engineering. Preference will be given to individuals with research
expertise in soft tissue biomechanics (experimental, theoretical, and
computational) and outstanding teaching potential. The successful
candidate will be expected to develop a successful extramural funded
research program and participate in both undergraduate and graduate
classroom instruction.

The position is to be filled as soon as possible. Candidates are
encouraged to apply early because applications will be reviewed as they
are received. Please note that application material must be submitted
electronically via our Departmental website:
