  • Professor or Associate Professor in Biomechanics-Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering ( invites applications from accomplished individuals with a PhD or equivalent in bioengineering or a closely related discipline. This is a tenured/tenure-stream, open-rank position and we are particularly interested in recruiting a senior investigator (Professor or Associate Professor). Applicants should have international stature in the biomechanics area, but we welcome applications from extraordinary candidates in any area of bioengineering. Specialties of general soft tissue, cardiovascular (including biofluid mechanics), or musculoskeletal biomechanics will be specifically considered. The candidate should have a track record of well-funded research, broadly cited publications, and a collaborative/entrepreneurial spirit. In addition, the candidate must be committed to contributing to high quality education of a diverse student body at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

    Located in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh is a top-5 institution in terms of NIH funding, provides a rich environment for interdisciplinary and translational research, strengthened through its affiliation with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and a diverse group of clinical collaborators. The Department of Bioengineering, consistently ranked among the top programs in the country, has outstanding research and educational programs, offering undergraduate (285 students, sophomore-to-senior years) and graduate (155 PhD or MD/PhD and 37 MS students) degrees. The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine (, the Musculoskeletal Research Center (, and several existing biomechanics-focused laboratories offer many collaborative research opportunities.

    Interested individuals should send the following as PDF attachments via email to (include BIOMECHANICS POSITION in the subject line): (1) cover letter, (2) complete CV (including funding record), (3) research statement, (4) teaching statement, (5) three representative publications, and (6) list of five references (names and complete contact information). We intend to fill this position as soon as possible and candidates are encouraged to apply early because applications will be reviewed as they are received.

    The Department of Bioengineering is strongly committed to a diverse academic environment and places high priority on attracting female and underrepresented minority candidates. We strongly encourage candidates from these groups to apply for the position.
