    University of Pittsburgh

    The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh is
    pleased to announce a tenure-stream faculty position at the Assistant
    Professor level. Our department, ranked nationally in the top 20, has
    strong research and educational programs, offering undergraduate (150
    students) and graduate (MS, PhD, and MD/PhD; 190 students) degrees. The
    Department is located directly across the street from and interacts
    closely with the School of Medicine, rated nationally in the top 10 in
    NIH funding. In addition, the McGowan Institute for Regenerative
    Medicine ( ) and
    Musculoskeletal Research Center ( offers many
    research opportunities in the areas of tissue/organ engineering and
    medical device development. Recent additions to the Departmental
    research infrastructure include state-of-the-art laboratory space in the
    new Biomedical Science Tower-3, a joint facility housing faculty from
    the Schools of Medicine and Engineering. There are three NIH-funded
    pre-doctoral training programs in the Department: Cellular Approaches to
    Tissue Engineering/Regeneration, Biomechanics in Regenerative Medicine,
    and Cardiovascular Bioengineering. Further information about our
    faculty and educational and research programs can be found at

    We are seeking an individual with expertise to complement and extend our
    existing strengths in biomechanics and cellular, tissue, and organ
    engineering. Preference will be given to individuals with research
    expertise in soft tissue biomechanics (experimental, theoretical, and
    computational) and outstanding teaching potential. The successful
    candidate will be expected to develop a successful extramural funded
    research program and participate in both undergraduate and graduate
    classroom instruction.

    The position is to be filled as soon as possible. Candidates are
