BU BME faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, interdisciplinary research centers, including BUNano, the Center for Biological Design, the Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care, the Neurophotonics Center, the Systems Neuroscience Center, the Center for Research in Sensory Communication and Neural Technology, our renowned Photonics Center, and the Hariri Center for Computing and Computer Engineering. We have particular interest in building already-strong interactions with the Division of Materials Science and the Graduate Program in Neuroscience. 

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. 

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have a strong history of external funding, and be internationally recognized for distinguished contributions in their fields. 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.
