The George Washington University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, to begin in Fall 2018. This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding person to join and contribute to the development of a new BME department. Strong applicants from all areas of BME are encouraged to apply. The Department opened in Fall 2014 after moving the longstanding ABET-accredited B.S. program, and the M.S. and Ph.D. BME programs, from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The School of Engineering and Applied Science, including BME, recently (2015) moved into a new 500,000 square-foot Science and Engineering Hall, adjacent to the University Hospital and Schools of Medicine and of Public Health. The building in downtown Washington DC features a state-of-the art imaging facility, nanofabrication facility and brand new modern BME research and instructional laboratories. The George Washington University is located in the heart of the nation's capital, with close access to many federal funding agencies and government research laboratories.
Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Biomedical Engineering, Bioengineering, or a related field, clear evidence of potential for developing a strong externally-funded research program (as evidenced in part by peer-reviewed publications), and the ability to teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Special Instructions to Applicants::

Review of applications will begin on January 3, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications from women and under-represented minority groups are strongly encouraged.
