The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) anticipates openings for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) faculty position, pending approval by the Provost. We are particularly interested the areas of Cellular Engineering, Diagnostics, and/or Biomaterials. The department of Biomedical Engineering believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports and elevates our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

BU BME is a top-ranked department and one of the largest in the nation with 38 tenured or tenure-track primary faculty. We attract exceptional graduate student and faculty talent at all levels and have strong ties to the BU School of Medicine, as well as other top medical research centers in the Boston area. Research activity by primary faculty is approximately $30M per year. Our faculty benefit from strong infrastructure, nurtured by being one of only three awardees of a Whitaker Foundation Leadership Award and funding from the Coulter Foundation, to translate research advances into new applications that impact society. BU BME faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, interdisciplinary research centers, including BUNano, the Center for Biological Design, the Precision Diagnostics Center, the Neurophotonics Center, the Systems Neuroscience Center, our renowned Photonics Center, and the Hariri Center for Computing and Computer Engineering. We have particular interest in building already-strong interactions with the Division of Materials Science and a newly founded NSF Research Center, the Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Directed Multiscale Assembly of Cellular Metamaterials with Nanoscale Precision ( http://sites.bu.edu/cell-met/ ).

Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and that Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD here. We are dedicated to increasing the participation of all talented students and are committed to the pursuit of engineering by underrepresented groups at BU and beyond.

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have postdoctoral experience, and show potential for leading an independent, vibrant, world-class research program. BU BME also places high value on excellence in teaching and in community. Candidates will be expected to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
