  • Faculty positions at the University of Delaware

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware
    invites nominations and applications for three tenure-track faculty
    positions at the rank of assistant professor. Highly qualified candidates
    will be considered at the level of associate professor or full professor
    (tenure or tenure-track). We are interested in candidates in any discipline
    of Mechanical Engineering but have particular interests in the general areas
    of composites, biomedical engineering, clean and sustainable energy, and
    robotics and control.

    Our Center for Composite Materials, which boasts $9M of research funding per
    year and 240 affiliated faculty, staff, post-docs, graduate and
    undergraduate students and interns, provides a forum for materials,
    manufacturing and nanotechnology research. Biomedical engineering activities
    are closely coupled to our Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, which
    has more than 30 associated faculty members and many NIH grants, including
    an $11M NIH Center for Biomedical Research Excellence award. In addition,
    the inter-disciplinary effort at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute
    encompasses research, education, and economic development in the life
    sciences with emphasis on human health, complex environmental systems and
    biomaterials. This $120M initiative is housed in a 72,000 sq ft
    state-of-the-art biotechnology facility. Sustainable energy activities are
    closely coupled to our Center for Fuel Cell Research, with research
    sponsored by Department of Energy, Federal Transit Administration, the State
    of Delaware, and industry. The research in Robotics and Controls is well
    established and is supported by multiple NSF awards along with ARO, ARL,
    AFOSR, NIH and NIST.

    Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, or closely related
    field. Successful candidates are expected to have demonstrated excellence in
    innovative research and show the potential for high quality teaching and
    mentoring. For positions at higher ranks, an outstanding and internationally
    recognized research program, along with proven high-quality teaching and
    mentoring, is required. **Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a
    statement of research and teaching interests and achievements, and a list of
    at least four references to the Mechanical Engineering link at (preferred); or send by mail to ME Faculty
    Search Committee, College of Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark, DE
    19716. Full consideration is guaranteed for applications received before
    December 1, 2009 (postmarked before 12/1 for applications sent by regular
    mail) but the search will continue until the positions are filled. The
    University of Delaware is an equal opportunity employer. Women and
    minorities are encouraged to apply.
