Hello friends. The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics within the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at the University of Pennsylvania seeks outstanding applicants for tenure-track assistant professors. Applicants for tenured associate and full professor positions will also be considered. 

The search has three priority areas. Candidates should apply to the area that best aligns with their research interests. The Department seeks applicants who will establish research programs at the intersection of mechanical engineering and:

(1) Precision engineering for health and medicine, including, but not limited to diagnostics and microfluidics, wearable sensors, bioprinting, single molecule and cell mechanics, drug delivery, and medical robotics.

(2) Energy and sustainability, including, but not limited to research in energy sources, energy storage, climate-resilient infrastructure, energy efficiency, sustainable materials, recycling, and low-carbon structures.

(3) Data science and machine learning, including, but not limited to physics-inspired learning, learning for design and discovery, autonomous systems, and uncertainty quantification.

There is lots of room for mechanics within these areas, and our department has a particular strength in experimental, computational, and theoretical mechanics; candidates would have a vibrant collaborative environment in which to work.

All are welcome to apply. Members of groups underrepresented in engineering are particularly encouraged to apply. 

Full details are here:  and in the attached PDF.

For full consideration, applicants should apply by Nov. 14.
