Tenure Track Faculty Position in Computational Biomedicine, Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University

The Nancy E. and Peter C. Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University invites applications to fill a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. Exceptional candidates at all ranks will be considered. We are seeking candidates with expertise in the broad area of computational systems biology with a focus on applications to human health. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in any of the following areas: machine learning, artificial intelligence, computer modeling for drug discovery, biomedical image analysis, computational genomics, protein structure prediction, computational approaches to the microbiome, and computational approaches to diagnostics.

Candidates must have an earned doctorate in engineering or a closely related field, with a demonstrated potential for success as an independent investigator and educator. We especially encourage applications by members of groups that are underrepresented in BME and STEM. This position will be supported in part by Cornell University’s FIRST program (Cornell FIRST), a grant from the NIH’s Common Fund’s Faculty Institutional Recruitment for Sustainable Transformation (FIRST) Program, to recruit early-career faculty who have a demonstrated commitment to inclusive excellence.

The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering is in the College of Engineering on Cornell’s campus in Ithaca, New York. The ideal candidate will benefit from strong collaborative ties to the College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, and Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell Tech in New York City. Our global presence includes a College of Medicine campus in Doha, Qatar. Further opportunities for research and development are provided by an extensive network of centers and institutes including the Biological High Performance Computing facility, AI radical collaboration, Englander Institute for Precision Medicine, Center for Vertebrate Genomics, Genomics Innovation Hub, Genome Biology Initiative, Cornell Neurotechnology NeuroNex Hub, Cornell Center for Materials Research, Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility, Cornell Center for Immunology, Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science, and Kevin M. McGovern Family Center for Venture Development in the Life Sciences.

Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery and engagement. The main campus sits at the southern tip of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The Ithaca area offers a small-town lifestyle with the cultural and culinary offerings of larger cities. The climate of the region provides for a range of outdoor activities including boating/sailing, swimming, mountain biking and hiking in summer, to skiing and ice skating in winter.

The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who foster a welcoming climate for all students. Biomedical Engineering at Cornell was the first department recognized with the BMES Diversity Award.
