Princeton University

The School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University invites applications for new faculty positions in the area of Bioengineering, at the Assistant Professor rank. While the main focus is at the Assistant Professor rank, exceptional candidates for Associate and Full Professor rank will be considered. We welcome applications from all areas in biological engineering, including but not limited to engineering approaches to controlling and understanding intracellular self-assembly, tissue-level biological organization, as well as bio-related technology development (synthetic biology, computational methods, sensing and imaging, biofabrication). Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Engineering, Physics, quantitative Biology or related disciplines, and have a demonstrated record of excellence. We seek faculty members who will be instrumental to creating an ecosystem of excellence and diversity, with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring. We welcome applications from members of all underrepresented groups. Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science has a strong core of faculty engaged in Bioengineering-related research, distributed in all engineering departments, particularly Chemical and Biological Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. These ongoing efforts also build on Princeton's historical strengths in interdisciplinary biology, focused in the departments of Molecular Biology and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, together with the Lewis Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. We seek creative and enthusiastic candidates with the background and skills to build upon and complement existing strengths, and help expand Princeton's Bioengineering program into new and exciting research areas in the future. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2020 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit online at a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications and presentations, a 3-5 page summary of research accomplishments and future plans, a 1-2 page teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references. Personal statements that summarize contributions to diversity are encouraged. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
