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, ability to attract extramural research funding, and capability to teach both undergraduate and graduate levels of biomedical engineering courses. We seek applications from candidates in all areas of biomedical engineering. Specific areas of interest include advanced biomanufacturing, biomaterials, regenerative medicine, stem cell and tissue engineering, synthetic biology, organ-on-a-chip, nano-biomanufacturing, biomedical devices, brain research, 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. The Department is particularly strong in advanced bio-manufacturing, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, cardiovascular engineering, biomaterials, biophotonics, biosensors, organ-on-a-chip, and biomechanics. A new research suite for advanced biomanufacturing opened in January 2016, and is the home for the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine. For more information, please visit our website at: http://www.binghamton.edu/biomedical-engineering/. The candidate will be expected to develop a plan that synergizes our partnership with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine. The Southern Tier has recently received a $500 million URI award from the State. This new hire will be expected to strategically contribute to this program.
