Tenure-track faculty position in Mechanical Engineering at 
Northwestern University
in Manufacturing or Dynamics/Control/Robotics


The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University 
invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in the area 
of Manufacturing or Dynamics/Control, though outstanding candidates 
in other research areas will be considered. The candidate should have 
a PhD in engineering or science, demonstrated excellence in research, 
and will be expected to develop innovative research and teaching 
programs in an interdisciplinary environment. The position is 
intended to be offered at the Assistant Professor level, but 
appointments at all ranks will be considered.

In the core area of Manufacturing, future technological innovation 
will be at the meso-scales (sub-millimeter to centimeter), as the 
bridge between the nano/micro-scales and the macro-world in which 
humans operate. We seek candidates who can support the conception and 
realization of small-scale systems to complement the department's 
strengths in computational mechanics, multi-scale simulation, 
tribology and interface engineering, micro/meso-scale manufacturing 
systems and processes, micro-scale fluid mechanics, and design 

In the core area of Dynamics and Controls, the department has active 
research programs in robotics, human-machine systems, neuromechanics, 
and bio-inspired robotics. Medical and rehabilitation collaborations 
are thriving, including cutting edge work on prosthetics and 
rehabilitation robotics. Hiring in this area will emphasize synergy 
with the efforts in biomedical engineering by the 
controls/robotics/neuromechanics group.

Application materials should be submitted to Prof. Michael Peshkin, 
search committee chair, exclusively via the web at


In order to ensure full consideration, applications should be 
received by December 15, 2007.

Questions may be addressed to Professor Michael Peshkin, Search 
Committee Chair, at MechEngSearchChair at northwestern.edu

Northwestern University is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity 
Employer. Women and individuals in underrepresented groups are 
encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in 
the United States.
