    Faculty Position Available:

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science at the
    University of North Carolina at Charlotte is currently seeking
    candidates for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level
    in biomechanics. Candidates with a strong background in the following
    areas are preferred: (1) orthopaedic biomechanics; (2) bone tissue
    engineering; (3) bio-mimetic devices; (4) mobility and prosthetic device
    design; or (5) biomechanical modeling of human motion. However, persons
    with a strong background in other areas of biomechanics and biomedical
    engineering are also encouraged to apply. The department has identified
    bioengineering as an area of emphasis in addition to precision
    engineering and computational mechanics. The successful candidate will
    have the opportunity to participate in multidisciplinary projects with
    the faculty in these areas. Additionally, the successful candidate may
    seek to collaborate with OrthoCarolina (,
    one of the largest orthopedic practices in the country and researchers

    Kinesiology at UNC Charlotte ( The
    successful candidate is also expected to play a major role in the newly
    formed Center for Biomedical Engineering Systems (CBES,

    Applicants must have an earned Ph.D. in biomechanics, mechanical
    engineering or related discipline. It is expected that the successful
    candidate will actively seek extramural funding to establish and support
    his/her research program. In addition, the candidate should be committed
    to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
