Description of Work:

The Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering (MME) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln ( invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at any rank (assistant, associate, full) in the area of biomedical engineering.

The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, with a major focus of the College’s teaching, research and outreach enterprise in the area of biomedical engineering. The successful candidate will add to a vibrant group of faculty within MME and the college, as well as strengthen collaborations and partnerships with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC).

Research areas of particular interest include, but not limited to:
•Multiscale (cell/tissue/organ) computational/experimental biomechanics
•Biomaterials/bioprinting/additive bio-manufacturing
•Cell and tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
•Biomedical microdevices and bioinstrumentation
•Bio-robotics and rehabilitation engineering

There are many opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and UNMC, including the Mary And Dick Holland Regenerative Medicine Program; the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior; the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory; the Center for Advanced Surgical Technology; and the Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine, as well as new faculty hired under this initiative across the College of Engineering. In addition to UNMC, local collaborative opportunities include Creighton University Medical Center and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has also recently received an NIH COBRE grant to support the Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication (, and the successful candidate may be eligible to receive funding and mentoring under this grant.

The Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering consists of approximately 32 tenured/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. The College is also undergoing an unprecedented expansion in facilities with two new buildings with an investment of more than $150M.
