Faculty Position
Department of Mechanical Engineering

Columbia Engineering's Department of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia 
University in New York City invites applications for tenured or 
tenure-track faculty positions. Appointments at the assistant professor, 
associate professor and full professor, will be considered.

Applications are specifically sought in any of the areas that fall under 
the umbrella of mechanical engineering, with particular emphasis on, but 
not limited to (1) the mechanics, physics and chemistry of advanced 
materials and materials processing for multifaceted applications. 
Examples include, but are not limited to, nanostructured materials and 
composites, energy storage, nano-photonics, soft matter, biological 
systems as well as for sensors and actuators; and, (2) medical robotics 
with specialization in, but not limited to, surgical 
intervention/assistance, rehabilitation, haptics, biomimetics, 
image-guided intervention as well as human-robot interactions. 
Candidates should have expertise in experimental, multiscale 
computational and/or theoretical methods in research areas complementary 
and synergistic with faculty in the School of Engineering and Applied 
Sciences. In addition to these areas, all outstanding candidates will 
receive serious consideration.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or its professional equivalent by the 
starting date of the appointment. Applicants for this position at the 
Assistant Professor and Associate Professors without tenure must have 
the potential to do pioneering research and to teach effectively. 
Applicants for this position at the tenured level (Associate or Full 
Professor) must have a demonstrated record of outstanding research 
accomplishments, excellent teaching credentials and established 
leadership in the field. The successful candidate should contribute to 
the advancement of the department in these areas by developing an 
externally funded research program, contributing to the undergraduate 
and graduate educational mission of the Department and is expected to 
establish multidisciplinary research and educational collaborations with 
academic departments and units across Columbia University. The 
Department is especially interested in qualified candidates who can 
contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the 
diversity and excellence of the academic community.

Candidates should apply online at: 
https://academicjobs.columbia.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=57150 and 
should submit electronically the following: curriculum-vitae including a 
publication list, a description of research accomplishments, a statement 
of research/teaching interests and plans, contact information for three 
people who can provide letters of recommendation, and up to three 
pre/reprints of scholarly work. The position will close no sooner than 
June 30, 2013, and will remain open until filled.
