|Description of Work||
Teach courses and participate in College of Engineering outreach and service activities. Develop an externally-funded research program. Contribute to the undergraduate and graduate academic programs within the department and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both teaching and research.
The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, related in part to the University joining the Big Ten Conference in 2011. A major focus of the College’s teaching, research and outreach enterprise in the coming decade is to strengthen collaborations and partnerships with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Creighton University Medical Center, both located in Omaha, and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln. Consequently, the College is seeking to hire a multidisciplinary group of faculty that have complementary expertise related to Biomedical Engineering.
There are many opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and UNMC, including the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior, the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory, the Center for Advanced Surgical Technology, the Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine, and the Nebraska Regenerative Medicine Project, as well as new faculty hired under this initiative across the College of Engineering.
The Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering consists of approximately 37 tenure/tenure-track faculty, 700 undergraduate students, and 140 graduate students. In addition to biomedical engineering, research priority areas include energy, nanoengineering, and manufacturing. An outstanding infrastructure exists for conducting research, including central facilities housing state-of-the-art instrumentation within the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience, the Center for Biotechnology, and the Nebraska Nanoengineering Research Facility.
|Minimum Required Qualifications||
Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field.
