The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) anticipates an opening for a non-tenured Professor of the Practice faculty position, pending approval by the Provost.

BU BME is a top-ranked department and one of the largest in the nation with 39 tenured or tenure-track primary faculty. We attract exceptional undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. We have strong ties to local industry in biotechnology and bioinstrumentation, and strong collaborations with the BU School of Medicine as well as other top medical research centers in the Boston area. Research activity by primary faculty is approximately $30M per year. Our students and faculty benefit from strong infrastructure and a translational emphasis, nurtured by unding from the Coulter Foundation to translate research advances into new applications that impact society. Research innovations focus on applying engineering, computational, and analytical techniques to biological systems—from the nanoscale level of DNA to the macroscopic level of organ systems. 

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.
