Boston University    Department of Biomedical Engineering

The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) anticipates openings for multiple Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty positions, pending approval by the Provost. Although candidates in all research areas will be considered, we are particularly interested in areas including Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Computational Bioengineering, Nanotechnology and Sensing, and Synthetic and Systems Biology.

BU BME is a top-ranked department and one of the largest in the nation with 39 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 approximately $30M per year. Our faculty benefit from strong infrastructure, nurtured by being one of only three awardees of a Whitaker Foundation Leadership Award and a Coulter Translational Partnership Award. BU BME faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, interdisciplinary research centers, including BUNano; the Biological Design Center; the Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care; the Neurophotonics Center; the Center for Systems Neuroscience; the Photonics Center; the Hariri Center for Computing and Computer Engineering; our new Kilichand Center for Integrated Life Science and Engineering, with a $100M endowment to support research; and our new NSF Engineering Research Center for Directed Multiscale Assembly of Cellular Metamaterials with Nanoscale Precision (http://sites.bu.edu/cell-met/).

Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and that Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD here. We are dedicated to increasing the participation of all talented students and are committed to the pursuit of engineering by underrepresented groups at BU and beyond.

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have postdoctoral experience, and show potential for leading an independent, vibrant, world-class research program.
