Tenure-Track Positions in (1) Solid Mechanics and (2) Bioengineering at the University of Colorado

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado
at Boulder invites applications for two full-time positions beginning
fall 2010. The positions are for tenure-track assistant professors with
disciplinary expertise in the areas of (1) Bioengineering (posting #808181), and (2) Solid Mechanics/Materials Physics (posting #808182);
higher rank may be considered for experienced candidates. Candidates
are expected to strongly complement and strengthen existing
departmental research in biomechanical/biomaterials engineering, energy
and environmental engineering, micro/nanosystems engineering, materials
engineering or solid/fluid mechanics. Candidates must have an earned

Mellichamp Chair in Systems Biology, UC Santa Barbara, College of Engineering

Mellichamp Chair in Systems Biology. The University of California Santa Barbara seeks to hire a highly creative and productive individual to fill a Mellichamp Chair in Systems Biology. The opening has resulted from a philanthropic gift that has been generously donated by Duncan and Suzanne Mellichamp.

Candidates at all levels will be considered. The primary academic appointment will be in either Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering, with a possible joint appointment in a related science department.

Viagra and Mechanics --- Watermelon May Have Viagra-effect

I was reading this research from A&M Texas on Viagra and Watermelon.

I have noticed that it has made the front page news on many newspapers
worldwide in a matter of few days.  Maybe we should move to this field,
and because below I find that there are indeed interaction with aorta stiffness and elastic wave reflections.

Web 2.0 and Medicine

I stumbled across this interesting blog post yesterday concerning an upcoming course on medicine via web 2.0.   It appeared quite interesting from several perspectives: first, medicine is often associated with being behind the times on technology but this all looks pretty current, secondly it may be the most comprehensive listing of topics I have seen where web 2.0 is applied to a single discipline, and finally it made me wonder what more we could do with mechanics via web 2.0 beyond just the
