Faculty Position in Tissue Engineering
This faculty position includes substantial long-term institutional and departmental support as well as a competitive startup package with support for personnel and equipment. Additional benefits for faculty at Mayo Clinic include intramural funding opportunities for research and innovation. The successful candidate will have opportunities to not only establish and maintain a highly recognized research program, but also to integrate with existing institutional strengths in transplant and regenerative medicine. The candidate will be strongly encouraged to explore entrepreneurial opportunities aligned with Mayo Clinic’s 2030 vision to Cure, Connect, and Transform.
The Departments of Transplant and Physiology and Biomedical Engineering emphasize a culture of trans-disciplinary collaborations between scientists, engineers and physicians to drive ideas from basic concepts to clinical practice. Current major areas of emphasis include: Physiology, Tissue Engineering and Regeneration, Biosensing and Instrumentation, Biomedical Imaging, Biomechanics, and Modeling and Data Analytics. The successful candidate will have a primary staff appointment in the Department of Transplant with joint appointment in Physiology and Biomedical Engineering and will be located on the Mayo Clinic Florida campus. The candidate will also be expected to actively build collaborations with researchers, physician scientists and clinical investigators in other departments and research areas across the Mayo Clinic campuses in Florida, Minnesota and Arizona.
The Research shield at Mayo Clinic is committed to creating a diverse environment and recognizes that diverse research teams make better decisions, are more equipped to solve complex problems and adapt to change, and produce better outcomes. That diversity is about opening up to unconventional ideas that create better outcomes, while recognizing colleagues' unique contributions. Become part of the legacy that embraces these differences and enables us to provide the best care to patients from all over the world.
Mayo Clinic is an integrated, multidisciplinary academic medical center with comprehensive programs in medical education and research that span across three group practice sites. We support a vibrant research enterprise, with programs in basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences. The successful applicant will have access to the resources of 22 Research Centers including the Center for Regenerative Medicine, Center for Individualized Medicine and the Center for Biomedical Discovery. Mayo Clinic has a large number of world class laboratory and state-of-the-art shared resource facilities. We offer a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural funding, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV and research statement.
Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering
The Department of Transplant together with Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering is seeking an energetic and innovative investigator in the area of Tissue Engineering. The successful candidate will introduce, advance, and implement novel tissue engineering approaches to organ replacement, organ modulation and organ resuscitation. The candidate will be expected to establish an internationally-recognized research program that emphasizes trans-disciplinary collaboration between scientists, clinician investigators and clinicians in the department as well as in relevant clinical and basic science departments and centers from across the institution. Alignment with existing strengths in regenerative medicine is preferred, but all relevant areas of basic and translational research in tissue engineering will be considered. Applicants developing and employing novel approaches toward 3-dimensional tissue and organ printing, organ scaffolding, organ preservation and resuscitation, stem cell engineering will be prioritized.
Credentials of a successful candidate will include a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D., Sc.D., or equivalent) with background in a relevant science and/or engineering field (e.g. biomedical engineering, cell biology, immunology, physiology, nanotechnology). Applications from emerging investigators are welcome, as are applications from more established investigators for whom a record of extramural funding consistent with or preferably exceeding the candidate’s career stage is expected. Candidates should exhibit evidence of leadership skills and multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations. Consideration will be given to candidates at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor level.
