Open Rank Faculty Position

The Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science is pleased to invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor faculty position at Columbia University in the City of New York. Extraordinary candidates at a tenure-track/tenured associate professor, or tenured professor level are also invited to apply. Candidates are sought in the broad areas of Biomedical Imaging/AI, but exceptional candidates may apply in other fields including: mechanomedicine, neuroengineering, orthopaedic bioengineering, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, systems and synthetic biology, biomaterials, functional biomedical engineering, bioinformatics of cellular networks, and genomic engineering. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or its professional equivalent in Biomedical Engineering or related field by the start date of the appointment. Postdoctoral experience is preferred but not required for the junior level appointment. Applicants for the tenure-track position must demonstrate the potential to do pioneering research and to teach effectively. Candidates to be considered at the senior level should have an outstanding leadership record in academic research and education. A joint appointment with Columbia University Irving Medical Center is also possible.

The successful candidate is expected to advance their field by developing an original and leading externally funded research program, and contributing to the educational missions of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and, as appropriate, Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Columbia offers a rich environment for multidisciplinary research and encourages collaborations with additional academic departments and units across Columbia University. This position seeks candidates who would develop biomedical engineering research in crosscutting fields. The ability to teach undergraduate and graduate level biomedical engineering courses is a must. The Department is especially interested in qualified candidates who will contribute—through their research, teaching, and/or service—to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.

Applications should be submitted electronically and must include the following: curriculum-vitae including a publication list, a description of research accomplishments including a statement of research and teaching interests and plans, a diversity statement, contact information for three experts who can provide letters of recommendation, and three selected pre/reprints of scholarly work.
