Biomedical Engineering
Faculty Position in Cell and Molecular Biomechanics
at the University of California, Davis

The College of Engineering at UC Davis invites applications from
qualified candidates for a tenured position at the Associate or Full
Professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s accomplishments. The
position will be in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and will
focus on cell and molecular aspects of orthopaedic biomechanics. It
aims to interweave medical applications with fundamental research that
bridge the “Cell and Molecular Systems” and “Musculoskeletal
Biomechanics” research tracks of the biomedical engineering program at
UC Davis. Exceptional candidates in other areas of research related to
biomedical engineering will also be considered. Candidates should have
a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering or a related field, a
commitment to excellence in teaching, a publication record that
demonstrates outstanding research, and potential for administrative and
programmatic leadership. The hire will be expected to develop an
extramurally funded research program, forge strong interactions with the
UC Davis Medical School, contribute to core undergraduate and graduate
courses, and assist in establishing an innovative multidisciplinary
curriculum in the field of cell and molecular musculoskeletal biomechanics.
UC Davis is 12th among U.S. public universities in research funding,
and the College of Engineering is ranked among the top ten public
engineering colleges in the nation. Davis is a pleasant,
family-oriented community in a college-town setting with excellent
public schools and a mild climate. Davis’ ideal location is just 15
miles from California’s capital city of Sacramento and within easy
driving distance of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, San Francisco, Silicon
Valley, wine country, and the Pacific Coastal areas.
Interested candidates should submit all materials via the WEB-based
online submission system (https://jobs.bme.ucdavis.edu). Required
materials include a statement of research and teaching interests (this
should include information about mentoring women, minorities, students
with disabilities, or other under-represented groups), a curriculum
vitae, three to five representative publications, and the names and
contact information of at least five referees who have agreed to write
letters of reference. Inquiries can be directed to the chair of the
search committee at biomedicalengineering@ucdavis.edu. The review of
applications will begin on December 15, 2007. However, the position
will remain open until filled. The UC Davis College of Engineering
(http://engineering.ucdavis.edu) is committed to building a diverse
faculty, staff, and student body as it responds to the changing
population and educational needs of California and the nation.
