The Mechanical Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, invites outstanding faculty candidates to apply for multiple full-time tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant or associate professor levels. Senior hires will be considered for exceptional candidates with the potential to lead major national center-level activities in the near future.
Candidates with a strong background in all areas of cell mechanics are particularly encouraged to apply. Topics of specialization within these areas include, but are not limited to tissue engineering, mechanobiology, morphogenesis, biomechanics, stem cell biology, and/or regenerative medicine. Candidates with a strong background and interest in the general area of engineering applied to the health sciences are also encouraged to apply. This position is aligned with the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM) at the University of Washington.We are seeking an exceptional candidate who will develop programs of high-impact research, contribute to an innovative undergraduate curriculum, and contribute toward expanding the diversity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. We view the originality and potential impact of the candidate's work as more important than the specific area of specialization thus we will consider exceptional candidates in other areas compatible with the mission of the department. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or other equivalent doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline by the date of appointment and excellent communication skills. The successful applicant will be expected to provide innovative, high-quality teaching; engage in collaborative research efforts that help build on research focus areas by developing a vigorous, collaborative, funded research program; and contribute to the goals and missions of the department, college, and university. University of Washington faculty is committed to excellent teaching, outstanding research, and exemplary service. The Mechanical Engineering department's research and teaching portfolio covers all aspects of the broad field of mechanical engineering, including interdisciplinary work in engineering in medicine, robotics and controls, materials, advanced manufacturing, and alternative energy. The department currently has 39 full-time tenured, tenure-track and research faculty, 372 undergraduates, 160 masters students, 110 Ph.D. students and 17 postdoctoral researchers and continues to grow.
