Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in AI and Data Science for Health and Biomedical Sciences at Duke University

The Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University invite applicants for a tenure-track faculty position at the convergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science with the goal of transforming biomedical research and healthcare. Applicants with research interests in AI, data science, and computational biology and with demonstrated research productivity in any area of biomedical sciences and medicine are encouraged to apply.

We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level, although truly exceptional candidates may be considered at the level of Associate or Full Professor. Applicants whose work bridges several research areas and who envision cross-departmental collaborations are particularly encouraged to apply. Where appropriate, hiring and recruitment will be coordinated as a joint effort with other departments at Duke University.

By the time of hiring, candidates are expected to have been awarded a doctoral degree in a quantitative field. Once hired, the successful candidate will be expected to develop and teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to obtain competitive external funding, to establish a vibrant research program, and to contribute through service to the welfare of the department and to the promotion of their discipline. We seek faculty members committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that fosters excellence in research and teaching. Our program values the ability to work with colleagues and teach and mentor students from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

Review of applications will start immediately, and applications received before December 15th, 2019 will receive full consideration. Applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled. We expect to hire for the Fall 2020 semester. Questions regarding this search should be directed to BMEAISEARCH@DUKE.EDU.
