Faculty - Northern Arizona University

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northern Arizona University invites applications for an open rank faculty position in our program to begin August 2017.  We are seeking an individual with research interests that complement our existing strengths in biomechanics, musculoskeletal kinematics, bio-inspired robotics and mechatronics.  The applicant will be expected to teach courses in the areas of biomechanics, controls, and kinematics, and other courses that directly support the Bioengineering Ph.D. program and the B.S. and M.S. Mechanical Engineering programs.  The successful candidate will: (1) maintain an independent research program that is supported by extramural funding; (2) publish and present research findings in high impact journals and professional meetings; (3) contribute to the teaching mission of the department, including mentoring of undergraduate, M.S. and Ph.D. students, as well as postdoctoral fellows; and (4) perform service for the department, university, and profession.   The position is anticipated to be tenure track or tenured as an Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor rank.  Both tenure and rank status are dependent upon 1) a candidate’s documented qualifications and 2) funding available at time of hire.
