The College of Engineering and the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) invite applications for a faculty position at the Associate or Full Professor level in the area of medical devices and related fields. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to design, manufacturing, materials, and robotics.

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering has 33 full-time faculty members, over 140 graduate students, and over 790 undergraduates. Research expenditures exceeded $4.7M in the last fiscal year. The Department has a long history of successful interdisciplinary research, including the Wind Energy Center, Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and Arbella Insurance Human Performance Lab. More recent, highly successful efforts include the NSF I/UCRC Center for e-Design and the NSF IGERT in Offshore Wind Energy. The emerging biomedical engineering thrust area involves interdisciplinary collaborations between faculty in the Department and faculty in other Departments in the College and around the University, including the UMass Amherst Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS). IALS was recently capitalized with $95 million in investments from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and the University. It is home to three unique Centers focused on translational life sciences research: Center for Bioactive Delivery; Center for Models to Medicine (M2M); and Center for Personalized Health Monitoring (CPHM). Interdisciplinary, entrepreneurial and collaborative, IALS features state-of-the-art facilities, $50 million in new instrumentation, cross-cutting informatics programs, education and training programs, and wide-ranging industry partnerships (precision manufacturing, medical devices, biopharma, and health IT) designed to help drive the regional economy and beyond.
