*Faculty Positions in Mechanical Engineering (all ranks)*

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware 
invites nominations and applications for three tenure-track faculty 
positions at the ranks of assistant professor, associate professor or 
full professor.

We are interested in candidates in any discipline of Mechanical 
Engineering but have particular interests in developing our research in 
the general areas of nanotechnology/nanocomposites, bioengineering, 
clean and sustainable energy and robotics/controls.

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 nanotechnology 
research. Other nanotechnology initiatives are supported by a fully 
equipped new state-of-the art 7,000 sq ft clean room for nano-fabrication.

Bioengineering activities are closely coupled to our Center for 
Biomedical Engineering Research, which has 33 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 involves a 72,000 sq ft state-of-the-art biotechnology facility.

The solar, fuel cell and other clean energy research at UD is world 
renowned, having over $9M/year in research expenditures, and supported 
by state-of-the-art fabrication facilities. Robotics/ Controls research 
is well established and is supported by multiple NSF awards along with 

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, or closely 
related sciences. Successful candidates are expected to have 
demonstrated excellence in innovative research and show the potential 
for high quality teaching and mentoring.

Applicants should send a CV, a statement of research and teaching 
interests and achievements, and a list of at least four references to: 
ME Faculty Search Committee, 126 Spencer Laboratory, University of 
Delaware, Newark, DE 19716. Application material should also be 
electronically submitted to *f-search*@udel.edu. Review of applications 
will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. 
The University of Delaware is an equal opportunity employer.
