Job Description


The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at all levels and in all areas of Mechanics and Materials.  Intellectual areas of great interest include the intersection of mechanics and materials with AI and machine learning, advanced manufacturing, sustainability, and resiliency; mechanics of materials in extreme and uncertain environments; applications of mechanics in soft robotics; biomechanics; and geomechanics.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has 26 full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members, 23 research and teaching faculty members, 300 undergraduates, 200 graduate students, and 65 postdocs. The Whiting School of Engineering and the Johns Hopkins University actively encourages and supports interdisciplinary research through school-level research centers and cross-divisional research institutes. The Department of Mechanical Engineering in particular has strong affiliations with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI), the Johns Hopkins Center for Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials (JAM2), Laboratory for Computational Sensing + Robotics (LCSR), the Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT), and the Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES), as well as the School of Medicine and the Applied Physics Laboratory.
