The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Tufts University invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level as part of a focused effort to further strengthen key research areas. Exceptional candidates will be considered at other ranks. The anticipated start date is September 2021. Current strengths of the department lie in biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and in sensing systems including medical electronics and optics, instrumentation and measurement. Additional information about the department can be found at: https://engineering.tufts.edu/bme/https://engineering.tufts.edu/bme/.
We seek applicants whose research complements our current strengths in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. We especially encourage applicants whose expertise is in cells, tissues and systems related to experimental or computational approaches. We seek individuals who embrace opportunities to work collaboratively within the department as well as across the School of Engineering (SOE) and the University.
The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain an active, highly visible research program and to demonstrate excellence in teaching, including core biomedical engineering subjects, and in mentoring both undergraduate and graduate students.
Tufts’ SOE distinguishes itself by the interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering education and research programs, within the environment of both a "Research I" university and a top-ranked undergraduate institution. We offer the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the resources of a major research university. Home to nine graduate and professional schools across four campuses, Tufts University prides itself on its culture of cross-school partnerships. Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus is located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, facilitating extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaborations, as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the region.
Candidates should possess an earned doctorate in biomedical engineering or a closely related discipline.
Candidates should submit their application including: cover letter; curriculum vitae; 3-page statement of research; 2-page teaching interests and objectives; 1-page diversity statement; and contact information for three references online through Interfolio. Cover letter should be addressed to: Professor Kaplan, Department Chair of Biomedical Engineering, Tufts University, 4 Colby Street, Medford, MA 02155.
Candidates are encouraged to demonstrate attention to diversity and inclusion as it relates to teaching, research, and scholarship throughout their application. For full consideration, applications should be submitted by December 31, 2020. Application review will proceed on a rolling basis and continue until the position is filled.
