[DMANET] Presidential Endowed Chair

*Presidential Endowed Chair: Professorship in
Health-related Sciences/Engineering Search*

Lehigh University is seeking applications and nominations for a
Presidential Endowed Professorship in Health in the Natural Sciences or
Engineering fields as an important component of a university-wide health
initiative. We encourage applications from established scholars open to
cross-disciplinary collaboration and whose research activities intersect
with those of existing groups at Lehigh University. We offer a uniquely
supportive environment for cross-disciplinary research over a broad
range of fields, and we seek a dynamic individual who would thrive in
such an environment and could serve as a catalyst for new cross-cutting
research collaborations. Candidates for the Presidential Chair must have
a distinguished record in health-related research in the natural
sciences or engineering disciplines and a record of external funding to
support their research endeavors.

Appointment, at the Associate or Full Professor rank, will include a
competitive salary and start-up package, and will be in the appropriate
disciplinary department. A concurrent search is also underway in the
social sciences and humanities. Additional information about the health
initiative is available at

Applications should be sent by email to
<mailto:presidentialchairhealthscieng@lehigh.edu>*. Please include a
cover letter, CV, and the names of three potential references.

Nominations are also welcome, and will be reviewed and contacted by the
Search Committee. Names of potential candidates can be sent to
