The Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics (BEAM) at Virginia Tech invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant professor level to start in August 2020. Candidates with experience in biomechanics and/or biomaterials are particularly encouraged to apply. However, applications will also be considered from candidates with broader interests in theoretical, computational, or experimental methods to investigate biological systems at any scale from molecule to organism. The successful candidates will be responsible for mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and developing an externally funded and internationally recognized research program.

Candidates should have a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering, engineering mechanics, or a closely related discipline. Postdoctoral research experience or comparable experience leading research projects beyond graduate school is considered a plus.

Applicants should apply online at, posting #511429; include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, and two candidate statements that describe research and teaching interests/philosophy (limited to three pages each), along with the names of at least three references that the search committee may contact.
