The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) anticipates an opening for a tenure-track Assistant Professor, pending approval by the Provost, at the intersection of neurotechnologies, data analytics, and cognitive neuroscience. Example areas of interest include, but are not limited to, structural and/or functional magnetic resonance imaging, functional near-infrared spectroscopy, and transcranial direct current stimulation. We anticipate that this position would begin September 1, 2023, or January 1, 2024.

The department of Biomedical Engineering believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. BU College of Engineering is a recipient of the Bronze award for ASEE Diversity Recognition Program. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

BU BME is a top-ranked department and one of the largest in the nation with 41 tenured or tenure-track primary faculty. We attract exceptional graduate student and faculty talent at all levels and have strong ties to the BU School of Medicine, as well as other top medical research centers in the Boston area. Research activity by primary faculty is over $30M per year. Our faculty benefit from strong infrastructure, nurtured by being one of only three awardees of a Whitaker Foundation Leadership Award and funding from the Coulter Foundation, to translate research advances into new applications that impact society. BU BME faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, interdisciplinary research centers, including the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center, the Neurophotonics Center, the Center for Systems Neuroscience, the Hariri Center for Computing and Computer Engineering, BUNano, the Center for Biological Design, the Precision Diagnostics Center, the Photonics Center, the Center for Multiscale and Translational Mechanobiology, and the NSF Center for Cellular Metamaterials.

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have postdoctoral experience, and show potential for leading an independent, vibrant, world-class research program. BU BME also places high value on excellence in teaching and in community. Candidates will be expected to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses.
