The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware
(www.me.udel.edu) invites nominations and applications for a tenure-track
faculty position at the rank of assistant professor, associate professor or
full professor. We are also seeking applications for the position of
Chairperson in this department. We are interested in candidates in any
discipline of Mechanical Engineering but have particular interests in
developing our research in the general areas of bioengineering,
nanotechnology, composites, clean and sustainable energy, robotics/controls
and environmental fluid mechanics.

Bioengineering activities are closely coupled to our Center for Biomedical
Engineering Research (www.cber.udel.edu), which has 33 associated faculty
members and many NIH grants, including an $11M NIH Center for Biomedical
Research Excellence award. In addition, the inter-disciplinary effort at the
Delaware Biotechnology Institute 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.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, or closely related
sciences. Successful candidates are expected to have demonstrated excellence
in innovative research and show the potential for high quality teaching and
mentoring. Applications and nominations should be electronically submitted
(preferred method) to me-search@udel.edu or ME-CHAIR-search@udel.edu. For
