*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
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
ARO, AFOSR and NIST.
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 *firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications
will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
The University of Delaware is an equal opportunity employer.
