Job description



The F. Joseph Halcomb III, M.D. Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky invites applications for up to two tenure-track faculty positions at the level of assistant, associate, or full professors, with an anticipated start date of January 1, 2019. The successful candidates will join a team of growing faculty and engage in vigorous research that applies engineering principles to solve healthcare challenges in an area that complements current faculty expertise in the department, including (i) biomaterials/tissue engineering, (ii) biomechanics, (iii) biosensors, (iv) bioimaging, (v) cardiovascular control, and (vi) neural engineering.

Applicants with an earned Ph.D. degree in an Engineering discipline with evidence of excellence in research and dedication to teaching and mentoring are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful applicants will be expected to develop and maintain a strong externally funded, globally recognized research program, and actively participate in the teaching and service missions of the University.

Our faculty members benefit from the strong collaborative culture and the unique intellectual infrastructure of the University of Kentucky. UK is one of the few universities in the U.S. having a major academic medical center with six health sciences colleges including Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Health Sciences and Public Health, and a full spectrum of other academic colleges, all within walking distance of each other. The BME Department has over sixty years of history in biomedical research excellence and is the only named department in the College of Engineering, thanks to a generous gift from our benefactor, a former UK BME program trainee. For candidates who desire to advance their career through true integration of engineering and medicine with clinical relevance, UK provides the right environment for them.
