Lecturer or Sr. Lecturer in Nancy E. and Peter C. Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University

The Nancy E. and Peter C. Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University has one or more full-time or part-time positions for Lecturers and Senior Lecturers to develop and teach undergraduate and Master’s level biomedical engineering courses. Lecturers are non-tenure eligible faculty members who are hired on multi-year appointments with a 9-month service period plus summer opportunities. Positions have anticipated start dates as early as August 2020. Full-time lecturers in the Meinig School teach two 3-credit hour courses per semester and participate in faculty meetings, curricular review committees, and strategic planning.

A Ph.D. in bioengineering/biomedical engineering or closely related field is preferred with a record of outstanding teaching. Teaching experience beyond the graduate teaching assistant level and in the core areas of biomedical engineering curriculum, particularly introduction to biomedical engineering, tissue engineering, and physiology is preferred. A strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching and advising is essential. Teaching responsibilities will include participation in and development of both undergraduate and graduate courses, and strong engagement in the core biomedical engineering curriculum. Applicants with leadership experience in engineering education research and assessment are encouraged to apply. These opportunities provide meaningful impact on a growing undergraduate program. Starting salary and title will depend upon the level of experience of the candidate.
