NEURAL ENGINEERING FACULTY POSITION
The Kennedy Krieger Institute &
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins
The Kennedy Krieger Institute and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins invite applications for a tenure track position at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek an individual with strong training in engineering as it relates to non-invasive imaging of the brain. Of particular interest are candidates whose work focuses on optical methods such as high density diffuse optical tomography. The candidate must also have an interest in human brain development and disorders of the developing nervous system, such as autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, cerebral palsy, acute and chronic stress during development, or other pediatric disorders of the brain, spinal cord, or musculoskeletal system.
The candidate should have a PhD in engineering or a related field, with experience working with multidisciplinary groups. This individual will be expected to develop an independent research program, interact with clinicians and researchers, serve as a mentor for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows (including clinican-scientists) and teach within the biomedical engineering program.
This position represents a unique opportunity to interface between The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering and Kennedy Krieger, a non-profit research and clinical institute. The successful candidate will have a laboratory within the Kennedy Krieger Institute in order to interface with researchers, clinicians and patients. They will also hold a tenure track appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins with all the responsibilities and privileges of primary faculty in that department.
The Kennedy Krieger Institute is dedicated to helping children and adolescents with disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and musculoskeletal system. It is a research, clinical, and educational institute with a dynamic and multidisciplinary team of professionals. Researchers at Kennedy Krieger hold academic appointments at Johns Hopkins University and are international leaders in the effort to diagnose, treat, and ultimately cure childhood neurological diseases.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins has a mission to improve health through excellence in research and education at the interface of engineering, biology, and medicine. It is the number one ranked biomedical engineering program in the US according to US News & World Report. Areas of strength relevant to this position include neuroscience, medical imaging and computational modeling.
Applicants should send 3 documents, including 1) a curriculum vitae, 2) a 2-page statement of research interests, and 3) the names and addresses of four professional references to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Women, underrepresented minorities and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
