Description

BCOE invites applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in Bioengineering who will complement the highly motivated and entrepreneurial spirit of the College faculty, and who will contribute meaningfully to the success of future teaching, research, and service accomplishments. Incumbents are expected to initiate and sustain strong sponsored research and graduate training programs. While we are especially interested in the areas of neuro-engineering, computational bioengineering, imaging, and cellular and molecular engineering, exceptional candidates in other areas of Bioengineering will be considered.

The Bioengineering department is currently home to 16 core faculty members. Our core faculty includes 4 AIMBE fellows, 2 AAAS fellows, 1 BMES fellow, 1 IEEE fellow, 1 SPIE fellow and 1 ISMRM fellow. Our research focuses on 5 cutting-edge and research areas: biomaterials/regenerative medicine, biomedical imaging, computational bioengineering, molecular and cellular bioengineering, and neuroengineering. Our interdisciplinary research and educational training effort extends through the Bioengineering Interdepartmental Graduate Program (BIG), which encompasses 50 additional UCR faculty members. The department offers BS, BS/MS, MS, and PhD degrees, with a current enrollment of approximately 75 graduate and 350 undergraduate students. Our graduate program is a gender-balanced blend of US and international students, with two-thirds of the PhD students being domestic, and of those, one-fourth are underrepresented minorities. The BS degree program in Bioengineering is fully accredited by ABET since 2011. Opportunities for collaboration exist through multiple college-level and campus-wide initiatives, including the School of Medicine, the College of Natural Sciences, Center for glial neuronal interactions, Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine, Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, High-Performance Computing Center, Center for Research in Intelligent Systems, Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, Interdisciplinary Center for Quantitative Modeling in Biology, Stem Cell Center, and Center for Advanced Neuroimaging.

Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.

Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for, developing a vibrant externally-funded research program and developing a portfolio of high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. UC faculty will be expected to maintain an active research agenda and record of publications; teach a regular course load at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and to participate in service activities at department, college campus, and professional levels. They should also demonstrate clear potential for complementing and/or synergistically leveraging existing research activities within the department, college and campus.

UCR is a world-class research university with an exceptionally diverse undergraduate student body. Its mission is explicitly linked to providing routes to educational success for underrepresented and first-generation college students. A commitment to this mission is a preferred qualification.

Applicants must be "all but dissertation" or have met the requirements for the PhD in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field at the time of employment, July 1, 2020. We are seeking highly motivated teachers and interdisciplinary researchers with demonstrated expertise in Bioengineering and/or Biomedical Engineering. Junior candidates are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program in the Department of Bioengineering. Senior candidates must have a demonstrated record of success in one of the appropriate fields Bioengineering and/or Biomedical Engineering, or relevant discipline, and be strongly committed to both undergraduate and graduate teaching. Salary will commensurate with education and experience.

Review of applications will begin January 1, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled.
