    Faculty Opportunity in Biomedical Engineering

    The Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the
    University of Notre Dame has
    an immediate, tenure-track position available for an individual
    interested in contributing to
    academic programs and pursuing research at the intersection of emerging
    topics in bioengineering
    and traditional mechanical engineering disciplines. The ideal candidate
    will have research and
    teaching interests in biomedical engineering related to solid mechanics
    and biomaterials,
    including but not limited to: tissue engineering, cell and cell
    membrane mechanics, bio-interface
    science, mechano-biology and functional adaptation, fluid structure
    interactions, multi-scale or
    multi-functional biomaterials, nanotechnology, or medical devices. The
    candidate should have the
    interest and ability to teach existing courses in traditional
    engineering solid mechanics and
    materials as well as courses in biomechanics, biomaterials, and
    bioengineering. The successful
    candidate should be committed to developing a strong extramurally
    supported research program,
    and to participating in the development of new education and research
    initiatives at the
    department and college level. Candidates with exceptional experience
    may be considered for
    appointment with tenure at the Associate or Full Professor level. In
    addition to activities within the department, opportunities for
    collaboration exist throughout the College of Engineering and College
    of Science.

    The University of Notre Dame is a private, Catholic, university with a
    doctoral research
    university (extensive) Carnegie classification. Notre Dame has an
    enrollment of over 11,000
    students and it is consistently ranked in USN&WR as a top 20 national
    research university. It is
    located near South Bend, Indiana and it is a short drive from the Lake
    Michigan shore and the
    greater Chicago area. Faculty in the Department of Aerospace and
    Mechanical Engineering have
    developed strong research interactions with the Indiana University
    Medical School located in
    Indianapolis and with several orthopaedic device manufacturers located
    in nearby Warsaw, IN.
    Ongoing research is supported by NIH, NSF, CDC, the State of Indiana
    and various industrial
    partners. The College of Engineering is currently building a new
    research laboratory that will be
    completed in spring 2006 and integrate faculty, graduate students and
    research facilities in the
    bioengineering area. Facilities for animal research are available in
    the Freimann Life Science
    Center with a licensed veterinarian and support staff. The Department
    of Aerospace and
    Mechanical Engineering and the College of Engineering are committed to
    excellence in this area
    based on cross-departmental interdisciplinary research and interactions
    with nearby medical
    schools, hospitals and industrial partners. More information on the
    Department is available at

    Nominations, letters of interest or inquiries for additional
    information should be sent to Stephen M. Batill, Chair, Department of
    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, 365 Fitzpatrick Hall, University
    of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, 46556. Email ( or phone
    5433) responses are also encouraged.
    The University of Notre Dame is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative
    Action Employer.
