Our mission is to excel in research, teaching and entrepreneurship. We aim to inspire and educate engineers for the 21st century. We are committed to quality, integrity, and respect for each other. We take pride in our high numbers of women students and students who are the first in their family to go to college. We seek faculty who have a real passion for a culturally diverse environment. Tandon belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), which assists with dual-career searches.

We foster innovation and entrepreneurship that make a difference in the world:

  • Our faculty and students are part of the high-tech start-up culture in New York City and in downtown Brooklyn.
  • We support four “future lab” business incubators that connect our students and faculty to today’s innovation economy.
  • We collaborate closely with other universities throughout NYC.
  • We maintain strong partnerships with NY city and state governments and with industry and corporate communities.

With NYU's unrivaled global network of campuses, we promote a truly global engineering education. We are deeply committed to teaching and learning. We lead and have ties to multidisciplinary centers in 5G wireless technology, smart mobility, cybersecurity, urban informatics, data sciences, technology and governance, and the social implications of artificial intelligence, among others.


We are mainly looking for candidates who specialize in tissue engineering/regenerative medicine or the growing area of wearable medical devices. However, applicants from all areas of biomedical engineering will be considered. Successful candidates are expected to interact closely with clinical faculty at the world-class NYU Langone Medical Center, the Grossman School of Medicine, and the College of Dentistry. Ample opportunities exist to develop collaborative and translational research projects with these and other top-notch institutions in the New York area. Potential candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering or a closely related discipline. We seek individuals who have (or have the potential to develop) a strong record of scholarship, leadership, entrepreneurship, and in securing external research funding for their projects. Furthermore, a demonstrated or potential for excellence in curricular innovation, teaching, and mentoring is strongly desired. The successful applicant will receive a substantial start-up package, state-of-the-art research space and will have access to numerous core facilities that provide advanced technologies.
