Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering

As part of the strategic plan for expanding biomedical and health science research in emerging fields, the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Watson School, State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton invites applications for one tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level with an expected start date September 1, 2019 or Spring 2020.

BU is one of the nation’s top 40 public research universities according to the U.S. News and World Report. The university attracts outstanding students and award-winning faculty who are partners in active discovery. We are seeking biomedical engineers who have demonstrated exceptional potential in scholarship, an ability to attract extramural research funding, and the capability to teach both undergraduate and graduate biomedical engineering courses. We seek applications from candidates in all areas of biomedical engineering. Specific areas of interest include data science, machine learning and AI-driven biomedical engineering, tissue biofabrication, biomaterial, stem cells and regenerative medicine, neuron science and engineering, human brain mapping, computational biology, immunoengineering, and other emerging areas. Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness are preferred. 

The candidate will be expected to lead efforts to broaden the university's Road Map Initiative in the Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence in Health Science (https://binghamton.edu/tae/). The department is particularly strong in advanced biomanufacturing, stem cells, tissue engineering/regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, cardiovascular engineering, biomaterials, organ-on-a-chip, and biomechanics. The BME Department has just opened a new research suite for advanced biomanufacturing. The suite will be the home for the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine (CBRM). The Department hosts an NSF REU program in translational biomedical science and engineering and a NIST PREP training program in biomedical standards and technology. The candidate will be expected to develop a plan that synergizes our strategic partnership with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the CBRM. The Southern Tier has received a $500 million URI award from the State. This new hire will be expected to strategically contribute to this program.
