CU Anschutz Medical Campus provides opportunities to collaborate with clinicians, while the Denver-metro area is home to many biomedical device and biotechnology companies. Colorado has 180 aerospace companies and more than 500 businesses that provide space-related products and services. Recently, Lockheed Martin donated an EOS m290 printer to CU Denver, which is available for the use by the future faculty member.


Job Responsibilities: Reporting to the chair, the person in this position will be expected to develop and teach lecture and laboratory courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels; develop an active externally funded research program; conduct high quality research involving students at all levels, leading to sponsored research and refereed publications; and contribute to Department, College, and University governance and to the profession.


Minimum Qualifications: The candidate must have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, or a related field, and have demonstrated expertise in additive manufacturing and design as evidenced by the candidate’s publication record.


Preferred Qualifications: Proposal writing experience, teaching experience, and experience working with a diverse set of people is preferred.
