The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vibrant, externally funded research program, and contribute to the department's teaching mission. Teaching responsibilities will include the development and delivery of upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses.
University of Massachusetts Lowell is located in the greater Boston area, that is home to almost 1,000 biomedical and biotechnology companies, ranging from small start-ups to large biotech companies. The vibrant academic environment in the area contributes to one of the largest networks of scientists in North America, which makes it a great setting to foster scientific interactions and collaborations.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering has seen a tremendous growth in its undergraduate enrollment since the program began in September 2016, with the number of majors nearly doubling every year. The growth in student enrollment and increased need for highly skilled scientists have motivated us to engage in an aggressive plan to increase the size of our faculty by hiring tenured/tenure track faculty members with active research programs.
