Tenure Track, Biomedical Engineering Faculty Positions
The Biomedical Engineering Program within the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech University seeks applicants for a tenure-track position at all academic ranks. Applicants with an earned doctorate in biomedical engineering and/or a related engineering or science field, excellent oral and written communication skills, and an ability to work in a team-oriented environment are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants whose research leverages the program’s current focus on Micro/Nano Biotechnology Sensors and Additive Manufacturing for Biomedical Applications. However, outstanding applicants with expertise in other biomedical engineering concentrations are also encouraged to apply.
The Louisiana Tech University Biomedical Engineering (BME) Program (https://coes.latech.edu/biomedical-engineering/), one of the first BME programs in the nation (1972), offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in biomedical engineering. The 52,000 sq. ft. Biomedical Engineering Complex (BEC), houses the interdisciplinary Center for Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Science (CBERS) (http://coes.latech.edu/cbers/), the biomedical engineering program’s administrative and faculty offices, faculty research laboratories, classrooms, a vivarium, and core laboratories that support microscopy, cell and tissue culture, analytical chemistry, molecular biology, physiology, and computational biology. BEC is physically connected to the 41,000 sq. ft. nationally recognized Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM) (http://coes.latech.edu/ifm), including research labs and cleanroom space equipped with state-of-the-art micro/nano fabrication and characterization equipment. Louisiana Tech is a part of the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI) that provides supercomputing power to affiliated researchers (http://hpc.loni.org). A $40M 110,000 sq. ft. building dedicated to freshman/sophomore science and engineering integrated education is our newest facility.
Louisiana Tech University is a US News Tier 1 National University with an enrollment of over 12,000 students. The B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering was first accredited by ABET in 1978 and enrolled 152 students. In addition to a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, the College has three other Ph.D. programs (Engineering, Computational Analysis and Modeling, and Molecular Science and Nanotechnology) with 119 students total and over 130 M.S. students in various programs. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the College, faculty can have opportunities to advise students in all four Ph.D. programs.
To apply, submit a single PDF containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a statement of research with current and future interests and goals, and contact information for three references to R-838 at https://ulsltu.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/LATECHCareers.
