Michigan Technological University invites applicants for new tenure-track positions at any rank in the broad areas of health sciences and engineering. This campus-wide Strategic Faculty Hiring Initiative (SFHI) is projected to bring up to ten new faculty members, including possible endowed positions, to campus over the next two years to strengthen the key focus areas of biochemistry, bioengineering, bioethics, biomaterials, biomechanics, human factors, medical informatics, cell biology, physiology, and statistical genetics.

Faculty hired through this initiative are expected to establish a vigorous, nationally competitive research program and to be committed to excellence in both undergraduate and graduate education. The application review process will begin on November 15, 2009. Details on the SFHI and application instructions are available at www.mtu.edu/sfhi .
