The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) invites applications for full-time tenure-track faculty positions. The Department offers an interdisciplinary research and education program housed within a top-ranked College of Engineering. Innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and problem solving reflect the spirit of Carnegie Mellon. We look forward to you joining us to make an impact on the future of medicine through interdisciplinary engineering innovation. Our faculty members benefit from a strong university-wide collaborative culture, generous research support, modest teaching loads, outstanding students, and comprehensive benefits. Initiated in the 1960’s, Biomedical Engineering at CMU has a rich history of research, innovation, and clinical application. There are exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations with other engineering departments; departments outside of engineering such as computer science, neuroscience, machine learning, and robotics; and clinicians at major medical centers in greater Pittsburgh and the Mayo Clinic. To learn more about the department, please visit our website at https://www.cmu.edu/bme/.
We welcome applications from outstanding candidates with expertise in biomechanics/mechanobiology, medical devices, biomedical artificial intelligence/machine learning, neural engineering, cell and tissue engineering and biomaterials. Appointments will generally be made at the assistant professor level, but exceptional candidates at a more advanced level will also be considered. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or a related field and demonstrate evidence of excellence in research, dedication to teaching, mentoring, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Successful candidates will be expected to develop an internationally recognized, externally funded, and highly collaborative research program, provide excellent classroom instruction, supportive student mentoring, and to help nurture an inclusive and culturally diverse environment in our Department and CMU. Carnegie Mellon values interdisciplinary collaboration, and thus we welcome applicants with an interest in a joint position with another Department across the College of Engineering. We will actively seek a diverse applicant pool in terms of gender, race, veteran status, and disability. Please use the following link https://apply.interfolio.com/113864 to apply for the position, including a letter of application, a complete curriculum vitae, a statement of research plan, a statement of teaching interests, and a statement of contributions to and plans to enhance diversity. You should also request 3-5 professional references through the confidential letter request function in the Interfolio system. You may wish to send an email to each of your letter writers to alert them that they will receive an automated email from Interfolio requesting that they upload their letter of recommendation (sometimes the automated Interfolio emails are mistaken for spam). Review of applications will begin immediately and all applications received by December 1, 2022 will be given full consideration. The positions will be open until filled.
