New Tenure Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at The Ohio State University invites applications for a new tenure track faculty position that will be available as soon as Autumn 2020. 

The BME department was founded in 2006 following a 35-year history as a research center, has 29 departmental faculty members, over 70 affiliated graduate faculty and a tradition of excellence in research and education including a continuously ABET accredited undergraduate program. The department is housed within the top-ranked College of Engineering and has very close ties with several top-ranked health sciences colleges including the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry, and Optometry -- all on the same campus. In addition, the department will be moving into a new state-of-the-art 120,000 sq ft teaching and research building with outstanding access to core facilities on the OSU campus. Additional facilities include the Dorothy M. Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute, the NSF-supported Mathematical Biosciences Institute, the NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Ohio Supercomputer Center and an NIH-sponsored Center for Clinical and Translational Science and provide unique and comprehensive resources for biomedical engineering research and education at Ohio State.

For this search, we specifically seek applications from exceptional candidates who complement and expand our existing bioengineering expertise in Cancer engineering and Neural Regeneration. In addition to a strong record of research potential and accomplishment, high-impact publications, and extramural peer- reviewed funding, applicants will be expected to demonstrate interest and accomplishment in teaching and advising students; and have experience with medical science applications. The candidate must have an earned doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering and 1-2 years of postdoctoral experience.  In addition, experience developing or working in interdisciplinary research teams and experience mentoring members of underrepresented groups are desired.

Applicant Instructions: Application materials must include a cover letter, curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching interests, the names and contact information of three references, and copies of up to three papers (published, under review, or in preparation).
