    Assistant Professor of Biomechanical Engineering

    A tenure-track faculty position in the field of biomechanics is
    available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University
    of Delaware. Acceptable candidates will be able to establish a strong
    research program within the broad area of musculoskeletal biomechanics
    (e.g., the neural control of movement, modeling of skeletal muscle,
    medical imaging of orthopedic tissues, biomechanics of connective
    tissue, rehabilitation engineering, etc.) and teach courses in
    mechanical engineering. This position is being established, in part,
    through an NIH-funded Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE)
    grant entitled "Osteoarthritis: prevention and treatment."

    The Mechanical Engineering Department ( has 21 faculty
    members, 63 graduate students, and 251 undergraduate students. Faculty
    members in our Center for Biomedical Engineering Research
    ( currently have over $18 million in active research
    grants. Many of these grants are for collaborative projects between
    faculty members in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and
    Physical Therapy. New faculty members will be able to interact with
    many related clinical and research facilities on or near campus,
    including UD's outpatient Physical Therapy Clinic, the Sports Research
    Laboratories, the A.I. du Pont Children's Hospital, the Center for
    Composite Materials, and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. In
    addition to having an appointment in Mechanical Engineering, the
    successful candidate also would have an appointment in our
    interdisciplinary graduate program in Biomechanics & Movement Science
    that attracts doctoral students with backgrounds in engineering,
    clinical sciences, and kinesiology.

    The University of Delaware is a publicly supported private university
    with a total enrollment of about 18,000 students. It is located in the
    attractive community of Newark, which is close to large industrial,
    academic and research institutions in Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore
    and Washington, D.C. For information about the university, visit our

    Applications will be accepted (or considered) until November 1, 2002 or
    until a suitable candidate is identified. Send a detailed CV, a teaching
    and research plan, and the names of at least three references to
    Biomechanics Faculty Search Committee Chair, Department of Mechanical
    Engineering, University of Delaware, 126 Spencer Laboratories, Newark,
    DE 19716. The CV and letters of reference (if obtained) shall be shared
    with departmental faculty. Inquiries can be directed to Professor Thomas
    S. Buchanan at (302) 831-2410 or The University of
    Delaware is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications
    from members of minority groups and women.
