The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) anticipates openings for four tenured or tenure-track faculty positions: (1) A senior, tenured faculty position in Biomedical Engineering, all research areas included; (2) a junior, tenure-track faculty position in Neural Engineering, Photonics, Biomedical Instrumentation, or associated areas; (3) a junior, tenure-track faculty position in Computational Biology and Data Analytics, including applications in molecular bioengineering, computational neuroscience, and biomechanics; and (4) a junior, tenure-track faculty position in Biological Design, which we define as the quest to construct biological tissues and organs using biological principles. Additionally, we anticipate hiring a non-tenured Professor of the Practice.
BU BME is ranked among the top 10 departments in the United States (US News). We attract exceptional talent at all levels of seniority. We have strengths in numerous research areas, boast a wealth of research resources and facilities, and have strong ties to the BU School of Medicine, as well as other top medical research centers in the Boston area. Research expenditures are approximately $30M per year. As members of a Coulter Translational Partnership school, faculty can translate research advances into new applications that impact society.
Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and that Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD here. We are dedicated to increasing the participation of all talented students and are committed to the pursuit of engineering by underrepresented groups at BU and beyond.
The senior hire, who will hold a tenured appointment in BME, must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have a strong history of external funding, and be internationally recognized for distinguished contributions in the field. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a robust, extramurally funded research program building on existing strengths and new collaborations, and to mentor junior researchers effectively. Junior hires, who will hold tenure-track appointments in BME, must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have postdoctoral experience and show potential for leading an independent and vibrant research program. BU also places high value on excellence in teaching.
Applicants for Professor of the Practice should have strong records of accomplishment in the BME profession and the desire to shape the undergraduate curriculum, especially in design and experiential learning. A PhD is desired but not necessarily required for this position.
