Faculty Positions

The Department of Bioengineering (http://be.ucsd.edu) in the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego is inviting applications for positions at the Assistant Professor level.

A PhD or advancement to candidacy in bioengineering or related engineering disciplines is required for this position. Successful applicants will be expected to teach courses to University students at the undergraduate and/or graduate level in UC San Diego’s Bioengineering, Biotech, Bioinformatics and/or BioSystems degree programs. He/she will establish a vigorous program of high-quality federally funded bioengineering research that focuses on engineering approaches to biological or biomedical problems, understanding the design principles and developing engineering models of living systems, experimental investigations of dynamics of living systems, integration across multiple scales from molecule to organism, design and use of next generation clinical, translational, therapeutic, diagnostic and/or biotechnology approaches.

We are expecting to recruit exceptional individuals to maintain preeminence in the development of bioengineering sciences, methods and technologies with:

  • Expertise and a deep engineering background in genomic, molecular, cellular, organismal and/or integrative analysis and design, in areas such as, but not limited to biomechanics, biotransport, systems biology, genomic technologies, medical imaging and biosensors;
  • A strong research interest in bringing engineering approaches to human diseases and innovative solutions to biomedical or biotechnology applications; and
  • The ability to develop synergistic interactions with researchers in UC San Diego Health Sciences, other related UC San Diego departments, and neighboring institutions.
