Multiple Tenure-track Positions

The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of
Pennsylvania is growing its faculty by 33% over a five year period. As
part of this initiative, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and
Applied Mechanics is engaged in an aggressive, multi-year hiring
effort for multiple tenure-track positions at the Assistant,
Associate, and Full Professor levels.

We seek applicants with exceptional research achievement and future
promise, a commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate
education in mechanical engineering, and a dedication to service and
collegiality. Candidates should couple with the department's core
strengths in mechanical systems, mechanics of materials, fluid
mechanics, and thermal sciences. We seek applicants whose training and
future research is strongly rooted in mechanical engineering, and who
work in Robotics and Controls with research that links at least two of
our department’s core disciplinary strengths (listed above) in an
integrated, multidisciplinary manner. In both topic areas, connections
with other domains (e.g., medicine, biomechanics, design, energy,
aerospace, or manufacturing) are encouraged. The Department seeks
applicants whose research aligns with the School’s new strategic plan
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.seas.upenn.edu_PennEngineering2020&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=03B_GRp2bH-P-HHucf6u4ux3xQ3dNVaHxIuzkT_2r2o&s=MdvtB25lBSo9F2w2TTcuhLU21vmfdp0cH46bh-fdwXc&e= ). For this search,
candidates at the Assistant Professor level are preferred; candidates
at higher levels will be considered in exceptional circumstances.

The Department maintains strong collaborations with all other
engineering departments, the School of Arts and Sciences, the Perelman
School of Medicine, the Wharton School of Business, and the School of
Design. Our faculty engage strongly with leading centers including the
General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception (GRASP)
Laboratory, the Penn Institute for Computational Science (PICS), and
the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter (LRSM). The
Department encourages candidates who can leverage and add to these
relationships. Successful candidates will conduct innovative, leading
research programs benefiting from Penn’s strong interdisciplinary
tradition and excellent facilities such as the new Singh Center for
Nanotechnology. Candidates who enrich the diversity of our community
are strongly encouraged to apply.

The University of Pennsylvania is an affirmative action/equal
opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive
consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on
the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender
identity, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status,
