Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) Faculty Positions - Department of Biomedical Engineering

Job description

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to invite applications for two non-tenure track Assistant Professor positions in biomedical engineering.

Non-Tenure-Track faculty teaching position in Senior Design and Core Lab Experiences: We are seeking applicants dedicated to curriculum development and teaching in several undergraduate foundational courses. Typical courses include (1) a SAGES course that introduces the concept of BioDesign to first semester engineering freshmen, (2) our first year “Introduction to Biomedical Engineering” course, (3) our two-course senior design sequence, and (4) teaching and supervising the laboratory components of BME undergraduate core courses (Biomedical Signals and Systems; Modeling of Biomedical Systems). Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or related field and to have at least two years of experience in teaching in similar undergraduate engineering courses. 

Non-Tenure-Track faculty teaching position in Medical Imaging and Signal Processing: We are seeking applicants dedicated to teaching in the areas of medical imaging and signal processing. Typical courses include (1) an undergraduate course on the fundamentals of medical imaging, (2) an undergraduate course and a graduate core course focused on signal processing, and (3) an undergraduate course focused on modeling and simulation. In addition, this individual will be expected to develop or participate in the development of a new course focused on optimization and machine learning, and to assist in the advising of BME undergraduate students. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or related field, and to have at least two years of teaching experience in relevant (e.g., engineering, mathematics, physics) undergraduate courses.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement on teaching experiences and philosophy, and the names and contact information of at least four professional referees. Please send these documents electronically in one PDF file to [email protected].   Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.  

Founded in 1826, Case Western Reserve University is a private research university located in Cleveland, Ohio.  The site of the famous Michelson-Morley interferometer experiment, the university is associated with 16 Nobel laureates.  The Case School of Engineering actively promotes interdisciplinary research collaboration through university-level institutes primarily focused on materials, health care, and energy.  

The Department of Biomedical Engineering, which is jointly housed in the School of Medicine and in the Case School of Engineering, is one of the pioneering BME programs in the country (founded 1968), and is home to 56 Primary faculty members, over 180 graduate students and approximately 500 undergraduate students. Its faculty are international research leaders in biomaterials and nanomedicine, imaging, neural engineering, and computational imaging and personalized diagnostics. The BME department is also home to the endowed Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership that promotes translational research and supports collaborative translational research projects to improve patient care and accelerate the delivery of healthcare technology from academia to the marketplace. The department strives to advance human health through education and research at the intersection of medicine and engineering and recently started the Robert and Brenda Aiken Strategic Initiative and established an alliance with the Biomedical Engineering department in the Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.

In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Case Western Reserve University provides reasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities. Applicants requiring a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and hiring process should contact the Office of Equity at 216-368-3066 to request a reasonable accommodation.
