Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering
Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering
University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering (MME) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (http://engineering.unl.edu/mme) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor in the area of biomedical engineering.

The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, related in part to the University joining the Big Ten Conference in 2011. A major focus of the College’s teaching, research and outreach enterprise in the coming decade is to strengthen collaborations and partnerships with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Creighton University Medical Center, both located in Omaha, and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln. Consequently, the College is seeking to hire a multidisciplinary group of faculty that have complementary expertise related to Biomedical Engineering.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field. Applicants must have a record of strong scholarly achievement and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education with the potential to establish a strong externally-funded research program. Preferred candidates should demonstrate strong potential to establish an externally-funded research program in the following priority areas of emphasis:

• Haptics and virtual medicine;
• Neural Engineering;
• Device technologies and biomedical robots;
• Multi-scale biomechanics and biofluid mechanics;
• Nano and micro technologies.

There are many opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and UNMC, including the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior; the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory; the Center for Advanced Surgical Technology; the Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine; and the Nebraska Regenerative Medicine Project, as well as new faculty hired under this initiative across the College of Engineering.

UNL has also recently received an NIH COBRE grant to support the Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication (http://go.unl.edu/cibc); new hires may be eligible to receive funding and mentoring under this grant.

The Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering consists of approximately 34 tenure/tenure-track faculty, 700 undergraduate students, and 140 graduate students. In addition to biomedical engineering, research priority areas include energy, micro/nanoengineering, and manufacturing. An outstanding infrastructure exists for conducting research, including central facilities housing state-of-the-art instrumentation within the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience, the Center for Biotechnology, the Nebraska Nanoengineering Research Facility, and new core biomedical facilities within the College of Engineering.

Applications must be submitted via http://employment.unl.edu (requisition #F_170092). Complete applications will include a cover letter (with specialty clearly stated), CV, research and teaching statements (4 pages total), and a list of three references. Review of application materials will begin November 30, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.

“As an EO/AA employer, qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, and/or political affiliation. See: http://www.unl.edu/equity/notice-nondiscrimination.”
