Tenure Track Position in Biomedical Engineering (Biomechanics)
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Opus College of Engineering
The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Marquette University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the field of Biomechanics to start August 2019. This position is expected to be at the assistant professor level; however, exceptional candidates for higher rank will also be considered. We seek outstanding candidates who are developing an internationally recognized research program, and whose teaching will advance Marquette’s educational mission. This new faculty position will grow our established research and educational programs in Biomechanics.
The ideal candidate will have earned a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering or a related engineering field. Candidates are expected to develop a strong, externally funded research program and to be effective educators at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Knowledge of Biomechanical Engineering in the broadly defined area of computational biomechanics, robotics, prosthetics/orthotics and/or finite element methods is preferred. While not required, experience in orthopaedics, rehabilitation or trauma is welcome.
The BME department at Marquette has a close, collaborative relationship with the Medical College of Wisconsin and offers BS, MS, ME and PhD degrees. The department currently has over 350 undergraduate students and 50 graduate students with a 5-year projection of over 500 students across all degrees with the greatest growth in Master’s and PhD disciplines. Strong collaborative programs are in place with the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation which include the Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC), Stroke Rehabilitation Center of Southeastern Wisconsin, and Neuroscience and Biomechanics Research Laboratories at the nearby Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center and Vehicle Crashworthiness Laboratory. These groups have received national recognition and multiple grant awards for a variety of biomechanical studies.
Applications must be submitted online. Applications should include a cover letter with the names and contact information for three references, a current CV, and statements of research and teaching objectives (two-page maximum each). Applications submitted before May 31st, 2019 will receive full consideration, with a targeted start date of August 2019. Inquiries can be directed to Gerald Harris, Chair of the Biomechanics Faculty Search Committee, Gerald.Harris@marquette.edu, 414-288-1586.
