    Hello -

    The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of
    Minnesota-Twin Cities Campus invites applications and nominations for
    a full-time tenure-track (Job Req #144207) or tenured (Job Req
    #144194) position at the assistant or associate professor level.
    Rank will depend upon the qualifications and experience of the
    candidate. We are particularly interested in candidates having a
    background in biomechanics. However, exceptional candidates in other
    areas of biomedical engineering will be considered as well.

    Candidates must have a doctorate degree in biomedical engineering or
    a related field of science or engineering at the time of the
    appointment and outstanding academic and research records.

    The successful candidate is expected to develop an active externally
    funded research program, initiate interdisciplinary and collaborative
    research, and engage in scholarly publication. The candidate must

    graduate students, including advising Masters and Ph.D. students, and
    supervising theses and dissertations. Candidates will also be
    expected to participate in departmental, college, and university
    committees and relevant professional organizations. Excellent
    opportunities exist in the department for interaction with medical
    school faculty and the biomedical device companies around the Twin

    Applications for this position must be completed online. To apply
    for this position, candidates must enter their information at this
    web site: Please attach a letter of
    interest, curriculum vitae including a list of publications, research
