The Mechanical Engineering Department in the College of Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, invites qualified candidates to apply for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor (non-tenured, tenure track) level. This position is on a 9-month service period with an anticipated start date of January 15, 2023. 

We seek to hire a faculty member in medical imaging physics. The successful applicant will be expected to conduct basic and/or translational research making fundamental advances in the understanding of medical imaging physics (ultrasound, x-ray, PET, MRI, etc.) and their applications to advanced diagnostic and therapeutics in medicine and biology.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an innovative and internationally recognized research program with direct impacts on both academia and industry. A critical expectation for the recruited candidate is to lead interdisciplinary research efforts in close collaboration with various entities and researchers both on and off campus, such as the School of Medicine or the Center for Industrial and Medical Ultrasound.

The successful applicant will be expected to develop an internationally recognized extramurally funded research program and to provide innovative, high-quality teaching. The candidate would also be expected to contribute to an inclusive and equitable campus environment, collaborate with members of the Department as well as other faculty and staff within the University and Affiliated institutions, participate in the Department’s graduate programs, and participate in the teaching, mentoring, and training of graduate students in the Department’s Masters and/or Ph.D. programs.

The UW Mechanical Engineering Department has achieved international prominence in Engineering Sciences applied to Medicine. We have a strong presence in areas like cellular and cardiovascular biomechanics, rehabilitation and artificial limb engineering, cerebral palsy biomechanics, biophotonics and advanced endoscopy/microscopy diagnostics, urology, and point of care viral diagnostics. We aim to expand this success to advanced medical imaging techniques for diagnostic and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, endourology, musculoskeletal disorders, etc., where the ME Department already have a strong foothold and collaborations with the UW School of Medicine.

The Mechanical Engineering department’s research and teaching portfolio covers all aspects of the broad field of mechanical engineering, including interdisciplinary work in engineering in medicine, robotics and controls, materials, advanced manufacturing, and alternative energy. The department currently has 39 full-time tenured, tenure track, research, and teaching faculty, 372 undergraduates, 160 Master’s students, 110 PhD students and 17 postdoctoral researchers and continues to grow.
