About Binghamton University:
Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Our unique character - shaped by outstanding academics, facilities and community life - promotes extraordinary student success.
Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 18,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.
As part of the strategic plan for expanding biomedical and health science research in emerging fields, the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Watson College, Binghamton University (BU), State University of New York (SUNY) invites applications for three tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level with an expected start date September 1st, 2023.
BU is ranked top #33 and is a premier R1 public research university. University's direct impact to regional economy reaches $1.2 billion in the recent years. The recent $113 million research award from Economic Development Agency (EDA) further catalyzes and fosters knowledge transfer and partnerships across industrial and academia to advance technology development and innovation in science and engineering. The university attracts outstanding students and award-winning faculty including 2019 Nobel Laureate Dr. Stanley Whittingham who are partners in active discovery. We are seeking biomedical engineers who have demonstrated exceptional potential in scholarship, an ability to attract extramural research funding, and the capability to teach both undergraduate and graduate biomedical engineering courses. We seek applications from candidates in all areas of biomedical engineering; however, we are particularly interested in the following three areas: 1) Biomaterials (biomaterials for regenerative medicine, drug discovery and delivery, biosensor development, medical devices, diagnostic tools, vaccine development, tissue repair, etc.), 2) Synthetic Biology (genetic circuits, redesigning organisms, genome editing, genome synthesis, genome project-write, human genome project, high-throughput gene sequencing, RNA sequencing, gene atlas, etc), and 3) Neuroscience and neuroengineering (neuroregeneration, neurological disease control and diagnosis, human BRAIN mapping, neural coding, neuromechanics, neuromodulation, neural imaging, neuro-microelectrodes, neural prostheses, neurorobotics, neurodegenerative disease control, diagnosis, and treatment, etc.). Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness are preferred.
The candidate will be expected to lead efforts to broaden the university's Road Map Initiative in the Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence in Health Science (https://binghamton.edu/tae/). The Department is particularly strong in advanced biomanufacturing, stem cells, tissue engineering/regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, cardiovascular engineering, biomaterials, organ-on-a-chip, wearable biosensors, and biomechanics. The BME Department is the home of the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine (CBRM). The Department hosts a NIST PREP postdoc and graduate training program in standards and technology. The candidate will be expected to develop a plan that synergizes our strategic partnership with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Upstate Medical University, and CBRM. The Southern Tier has received a $500 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) award from New York State. The new hires will be expected to strategically contribute to this program.

Working at Binghamton University
Message on working at Binghamton University from President Harvey Stenger
Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946, to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, N.Y., five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University.
Four years later, the college was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) and renamed Harpur College in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher, patriot and pioneer who helped settle the area west of Binghamton.
In 1961, the campus moved across the Susquehanna River to Vestal. Growing enrollment and a reputation for excellence soon led to the selection of Harpur College as one of four doctorate-granting University Centers in the SUNY system.
In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton, and in 1992, Binghamton University was adopted as our informal name.
Binghamton University is a premier public university dedicated to enriching the lives of people in the region, state, nation and world through discovery and education and to being enriched by partnerships with those communities.
Binghamton as an institution is dedicated to higher education, one that combines an international reputation for graduate education, research, scholarship and creative endeavor with the best undergraduate programs available at any public university.
We are an academically selective community that shares ideas across departments, disciplines and borders. We encourage faculty, students and staff to ask unexpected questions, foster open dialog and develop innovative solutions to important problems.
