Description:

The Department of Bioengineering is engaged in a multi-year effort to fill tenure-track and tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels.

The University of Pennsylvania provides unique opportunities for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering is prominent in the strategic plans of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the University emphasizing integrative research in all aspects of human health that range from fundamental to translational research. All of Penn’s twelve schools are situated on one campus making it an ideal environment for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering seeks to enhance its integrative research and educational programs. We are especially interested in candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s strategic plan (https://www.seas.upenn.edu/about/strategic-plan/).

At the assistant professor level, individuals should demonstrate superb academic credentials and promise for a career in bioengineering research. At higher professorial levels, an evident track record of research excellence including successful competitive research funding and academic standing is expected. Growth areas for our program include systems/synthetic biology, multiscale biology, biomedical imaging, neuroengineering, bionanotechnology, and regenerative medicine. However, we encourage applications from candidates in any emerging area of bioengineering. A commitment to teaching should also be apparent including development of undergraduate and graduate courses, supervision of doctoral students, and academic advising of students at all levels.

Across our 12 highly-regarded schools, more than 25,000 students, and more than 4,000 faculty members, we become one university: a wide-ranging, ever-changing community that draws its strength from a multitude of races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, historical traditions, ages, religions, disabilities, veteran status, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic backgrounds. 

Penn carries on the principles and spirit of its founder, Benjamin Franklin: entrepreneurship, innovation, invention, outreach, and a pragmatic love of knowledge. Franklin's practical outlook has remained a driving force in the university's development. To learn more, visit About Penn

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact. 

 

Learn about the signature initiatives of the Penn Compact 2022:  

 

Diversity 

 

Understanding and appreciating diversity is one of Penn's most important priorities and is fundamental to success in today's world. 

 

Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
