  • Faculty Position: Full/Distinguished Professor in Biomechanics

    Full/Distinguished Professor in Biomechanics

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas
    invites applications and nominations for an outstanding individual in
    the area of Biomechanics at the level of Full Professor. A candidate
    with the appropriate qualifications may also be appointed as a
    Distinguished Professor. This Full/Distinguished Professor will allow us
    to add breadth and depth to our existing research and teaching
    activities in biomechanics. Although all areas of biomechanics will be
    considered, primary consideration will be given to applicants with
    experimental and/or computational experience in biomaterials, motor
    control, tissue engineering, biomedical instrumentation, cellular
    mechanics, or medical imaging. Salary and benefits are competitive, and
    commensurate with qualifications and experience. Additional requirements
    can be found at

    Applicants must have a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical
    Engineering, or a closely related field. Candidates should have an
    excellent record in engineering education, research and professional
    service; including nationally acknowledged scholarly publications and an
    externally funded research program; as well as demonstrated
    collaborative accomplishments in both research and teaching activities.
    Thus, the successful candidate should be capable of leading an
    internationally recognized research program in biomechanics and have
    commensurate teaching skills at both the graduate and undergraduate

    The University of Kansas is a Carnegie I research institution with a
    history of excellence in education, research, and service, and is a
    member of the American Association of Universities. The Department of
    Mechanical Engineering is composed of 14 faculty members, 185
    undergraduates, and 35 graduate students. The department is developing
    biomechanics as a focus research area and presently has three faculty
    members with externally funded research programs investigating
    orthopedic biomechanics, bone mechanics, and biodynamics. Other
    departmental research areas include computer-aided manufacturing,
    computational mechanics, composite materials, and thermo-fluid science.

    The appointment will be effective as negotiated. Applications and
    nominations should be sent to Dr. Ronald L. Dougherty, Chair, Department
    of Mechanical Engineering, 3013 Learned Hall, University of Kansas,
    Lawrence, KS 66045-2234; Phone: 785-864-3181; Fax: 785-864-5254; E-mail: A complete application should include a letter of
    application, curriculum vitae, a description of research and teaching
    interests, and the names, addresses and phone numbers of three
