Northern Illinois University (NIU) anticipates hiring a tenure-track faculty
position with specialization in biomechanics at the level of assistant
professor rank starting August 2017. (Position #6667) 

The department offers B.S. and M.S. degrees and currently has 14 faculty
members, about 625 undergraduate students and 90 graduate students. The
faculty member may also participate in supervising Ph.D. students in

courses, conduct independent-externally funded research projects, publish
research work in archival journals, supervise undergraduate/graduate
students in engaged and experiential learning programs, and collaborate with
regional stake holders. The research agenda of the faculty member should
expand the department portfolio in biomechanical engineering including areas
such as musculoskeletal analysis, dynamics and control of human movement,
robotic integration for human machine interface such as rehabilitative,
assistive, and haptic interface, device design, injury assessment or
prevention, transport phenomena in biological systems, targeted drug
delivery, soft tissue thermo-fluid dynamics, or other related topics. 

A Ph.D. in engineering or related interdisciplinary biological field is
required by the time of appointment. 

Candidates should provide the following: 1. application letter summarizing
their qualifications, 2. statement of teaching philosophy including
applications of pedagogy, 3. concise research plan with short-term and
long-term biomechanics objectives, and 4. curriculum vitae of professional
