Faculty Position in Bioengineering

University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science

Description

The Department of Bioengineering is engaged in a multi-year effort to fill tenure-track and tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels.

The University of Pennsylvania provides unique opportunities for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering is prominent in the strategic plans of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the University emphasizing integrative research in all aspects of human health that range from fundamental to translational research. All of Penn’s twelve schools are situated on one campus making it an ideal environment for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering seeks to enhance its integrative research and educational programs. We are especially interested in candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s strategic plan (https://www.seas.upenn.edu/about/strategic-plan/).

Qualifications

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering or a related field. At the assistant professor level, individuals should demonstrate superb academic credentials and promise for a career in bioengineering research. At higher professorial levels, an evident track record of research excellence including successful competitive research funding and academic standing is expected. Growth areas for our program include systems/synthetic biology, multiscale biology, biomedical imaging, neuroengineering, bionanotechnology, and regenerative medicine. However, we encourage applications from candidates in any emerging area of bioengineering. A commitment to teaching should also be apparent including development of undergraduate and graduate courses, supervision of doctoral students, and academic advising of students at all levels.
