The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University
of Houston (UH) invites applications for a tenured faculty position at the Full
Professor level beginning Fall 2013 or later. Successful candidates are
expected to establish an internationally recognized dynamic research program in
the area of experimental biomechanics and mechanobiology. Special preference
would be given to those pursuing cellular level and/or single molecule studies
of living systems with emphasis on healthcare applications. Highly qualified
associate professors will also be considered. Exceptionally strong candidates
will be considered for the M.D. Anderson Professorship.

As part of a major drive for excellence, including the
recent designation of UH as a Tier One university, the Cullen College of
Engineering has a strong commitment to expand as well as advance the quality of
