|The Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University invites applications for a tenure track faculty position. Applications are invited from candidates who will develop highly impactful basic and/or translational research in the area of Cellular Bioengineering.
We will consider applicants who work on all aspects of cellular engineering involving prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells. We particularly seek individuals who are developing new technologies to precisely control cell fate and function. Although all application areas will be considered, main areas of interest are stem cells and regenerative medicine, organ-on-chip and disease modeling, genome engineering of cells for therapeutic applications, immunoengineering for tissue regeneration and therapy, and microbiome engineering. Candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or any relevant biological disciplines including cell and developmental biology, genetics, or molecular biology. Applications from physician-scientists are also encouraged. Successful candidates are expected to have an established and innovative research record, be capable of obtaining competitive external research funding, and actively teach and mentor at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We seek faculty members committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that fosters excellence in research and teaching. A tenure track appointment at the Assistant Professor level is anticipated, but appointments at the Associate or Full Professor level with tenure are available for exceptional applicants. Possibilities for joint or secondary appointments with the Schools of Medicine and Arts and Sciences exist.
Applicants should submit a cover letter (email, address, and phone number must be included), research statement, teaching statement, a curriculum vitae and a list of the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail contacts of five references. All applicants are strongly encouraged to create a publicly accessible Google Scholar profile. Applications must be submitted electronically through AcademicJobsOnline.org
All applications will be considered until the position is filled but for best consideration, please submit applications by November 1, 2016.
