Biomaterials faculty position at Lehigh University

I am chairing the search for a new faculty member in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Lehigh. As you will see in the ad below, the position is in the Biomaterials area. I would like to encourage more applications from candidates with interests in biomechanics (so I will have good opportunities to collaborate), and would like to invite applicants from this forum. If you are not personally in a position to apply, please pass the announcement along to anyone you know who might be suitable. The closing date for applications is January 30, 2007.  See full description of the position.

Faculty Position in Biomaterials
Department of Materials Science & Engineering

Lehigh seeks to fill a tenure track position at the level of Assistant Professor in Materials Science and Engineering. The department is searching for an outstanding individual who works at the interface between Materials Science & Engineering and the disciplines of BioEngineering or Biology. An earned doctorate is required, as well as demonstrated ability in teaching and research. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the Materials curriculum, contributing to the Bioengineering Program, and establishing a vibrant, high-quality research program. This will include participation in multidisciplinary activities such as those coordinated by the International Materials Institute for New Functionality in Glasses, the Center for Polymer Science and Engineering, and the Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. The Materials Science Department has excellent resources, including world-class facilities for electron microscopy, glass synthesis, and small-scale mechanical testing. Existing biomaterials activities emphasize biocompatible inorganic materials including bioglass, metallic nanoparticles, and biomedical implants. Outside the department, strong research programs exist for biochemical engineering, biophotonic imaging, and for biomolecular, cellular, and tissue engineering. Further details can be found at Please submit a CV by January 30, 2007, along with a Teaching Proposal describing instructional philosophy and interests at the core and elective levels, and a 3-6 page sample Research Proposal describing an externally fundable research effort, to Sharon Coe, Lehigh University, 5 E.
