Department of Mechanics Faculty Position in Biomaterials

In the context of the development of a new interdepartmental Biomedical Engineering Institute and in line with the key projects developed by its Solid Mechanics Laboratory, the Department of Mechanics at Ecole Polytechnique is invites applications for an assistant professor in the field of biomaterials.

The position is open at the assistant professor level, but senior applications will also be considered. Candidates interested in collaborating directly with physicians are especially encouraged to apply. Areas of interest include multiscale biological materials, organoid bioengineering, connective and cellular tissue engineering, or smart gels and polymers as encountered for example in the development of controlled drug release systems.

Candidates must hold a PhD and have a track record of excellent research and teaching. The selected candidate will be expected to teach courses in mechanics at different levels in the different curriculum offered by Ecole Polytechnique (Bachelor, Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program and Master), and to contribute to broadening the department's course offer at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate’s ability to contribute to project classes and strengthen the relationships between teaching, research and applications will be an important selection criterion.
