| Stevens Institute of Technology invites applications for two faculty positions in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry and Biological Sciences. http://www.stevens.edu/ses/bcb. |
Since 1870, Stevens has developed transformative engineering solutions. Stevens is a student-centric research university with a major initiative in healthcare research. The Biomedical Engineering program is central to this initiative. Biomedical Engineering has an ABET-accredited undergraduate program and masters and doctoral level graduate programs, with approximately 300 students in total. The program is poised for significant growth at all levels of education and research.
We have one open tenure track/tenured position at the level of Assistant Professor in our Bioengineering Program [RQ18279]. The successful candidate will be responsible for initiating an externally-funded research program and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and will receive a competitive start-up package in support of his or her research. Candidates should hold a PhD in biomedical sciences or engineering and have significant post-doctoral experience. The ideal candidate will perform multidisciplinary research that bridges the life sciences and biomedical engineering. Preference will be given to candidates with research interests in (i) soft tissue biomechanics/biomaterials, (ii) biosensors, (iii) imaging or (iv) mechanotransduction. Researchers in these areas with applications in the brain or the cardiovascular or pulmonary systems are especially encouraged to apply. A second, non-tenure track, position is that of Lecture, Sr. Lecturer or Teaching Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in our Biomedical Engineering Program[RQ18250]. Candidates should hold a PhD in biomedical engineering, or a closely related field with significant relevant career experience, and have a demonstrated track record of excellence in teaching as indicated by positive teaching assessments from colleagues and / or students. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching or work experience in soft tissue biomechanics / biomaterials and kinematics, or in cardiovascular or pulmonary engineering physiology. The successful applicant will be expected to re-design existing courses and to develop new courses using evidence-based teaching methods. In addition to teaching, the successful applicant will be expected to participate in student advising, to be an active member of the intellectual community, and, if appropriate, to supervise curriculum-based student research.
Stevens Institute of Technology is a private university located in Hoboken, NJ. The university is situated on a 55 acre, park-like campus on the Hudson River opposite New York City. The faculty enjoys well-established collaborations with colleagues at outstanding universities, medical centers and industrial firms in the Tri-State Area. Opportunities to join existing relationships and build new collaborations abound. Interested candidates should submit as a single PDF file: a cover letter, a statement of teaching philosophy with assessment data, a research plan (tenure track/tenure position only), a curriculum vitae and the names of at least three references to https://stevens.wd5.myworkdayjobs.com/External. The review of applications will begin immediately.
The Stevens Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and recipient of an ADVANCE grant from the National Science Foundation. Women and members of under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.
