The Nancy E. and Peter C. Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor rank with an anticipated start date of Fall, 2017.
Applications are sought from strong candidates working in any area of biomedical engineering that complements or builds upon existing research strengths in the School. This search is open, but preference may be given to those applicants with research in neuroengineering – broadly defined to include any research vision where engineering approaches are applied to understand, diagnose, or treat neurological disease. Candidates must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field and are expected to establish an outstanding, internationally recognized research program as well as contribute fully to both undergraduate and graduate instruction and to the service missions of the School.
The successful applicant will join a highly-collaborative faculty in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, with top-tier research and graduate education programs and a recently launched undergraduate major. Outstanding research resources and opportunities to engage in interdisciplinary work are available through a number of programs and centers across the university, including the NIH-funded Center on the Physics of Cancer Metabolism, the Cornell Center for Materials Research, the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility, and Cornell Neurotech, a new initiative that aims to develop advanced tools for unraveling the neural circuit dynamics that underlie brain function.
The Meinig School and Cornell University embrace diversity and seek candidates who will foster a climate that attracts all students, staff and faculty. Cornell University seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples, has a dual-career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual-career searches.
Please apply by December 15, 2016 for full consideration. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, 2-3 page statement of research vision, 1-2 page statement of teaching vision, copies of three recent publications, and names and contact information for three references. Personal statements summarizing leadership efforts and contributions to diversity and inclusion are encouraged. Submit applications electronically to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8201. Please direct intellectual questions about the position to the search chair, Professor Chris Schaffer (email@example.com).
