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:
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.
