Biomedical Engineering, University of Florida

The University of Florida has launched an ambitious fundraising and hiring initiative to position itself among the nation’s best public research universities. In engineering, the recent naming of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering with a $50 million gift is catalyzing a $300 million transformation that includes faculty expansion to 300 total, new collaborative facilities, and innovative educational initiatives. als, the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of assistant professor and lecturer. The University of Florida is consistently ranked among the nation's top universities, and biomedical engineering serves as the research and educational interface between engineering and the health sciences. The UF BME graduate program is ranked 15th among public universities by U.S. News and World Report, which represents an 18 spot climb since 2013. As part of the department’s plan to grow to 25 outstanding faculty over the next few years, eight new faculty have been hired in the past three years. UF BME is proud of its diverse faculty and student body, and efforts are focused on continuing to build a cohesive and diverse team. Biomedical Engineering at UF is uniquely situated, being co-localized with a top-ranked medical school, dental school, and veterinary school nearby. The Department is housed in a state-of-the art building (completed in 2010) located in the UF Medical School/Health Sciences, just steps away from the highly ranked College of Engineering. The $90.5 million, 163,000-square-foot building houses researchers from the Colleges of Medicine, Engineering, and Public Health; creating unique opportunities for new collaborations. Biomedical Engineering at UF partners with many local research centers and institutes including the McKnight Brain Institute, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, the Aging Institute, the Nanoscience Institute for Medical and Engineering Technology (NIMET), the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Cancer and Genetics Institute and the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center. The department is also exceptionally positioned to contribute to translation of biomedical technologies because of the world-renowned resources for entrepreneurship and commercialization, including the Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator, UF's 40-acre Innovation Square, and the burgeoning biomedical industry around Gainesville. Successful candidates will demonstrate promise to build collaboration with our partners into world-class research programs. Final candidate will be required to provide official transcript to the hiring department upon hire. A transcript will not be considered "official" if a designation of "Issued to Student" is visible. Degrees earned from an education institution outside of the United States are required to be evaluated by a professional credentialing service provider approved by National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which can be found at
