The Nancy E. and Peter C. Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University invites applications to fill two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. The applicant’s research area is open to all outstanding candidates, but applicants with expertise in drug delivery, tissue engineering or systems and synthetic biology with applications in neurology, cancer or immunology are particularly encouraged. Applicants must have an earned doctorate in engineering or in a closely related field, with a publication and training record commensurate with growth as an independent investigator.
The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering is located in the College of Engineering on Cornell’s main campus in Ithaca, New York, with strong collaborative ties to the College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, and Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. Our global presence includes College of Medicine campuses in Manhattan and Doha, Qatar, and the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City.
Fundamental and applied research, and translational development are supported by an extensive network of centers and institutes (https://research.cornell.edu/content/centers-institutes-programs-laboratories) including the Cornell Center on the Physics of Cancer Metabolism, Cornell Neurotechnology NeuroNex Hub, Cornell Center for Materials Research, Cornell Nanoscale Facility, Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science and the Kevin M. McGovern Family Center for Venture Development in the Life Sciences.
Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery and engagement. The main campus in Ithaca sits at the southern tip of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The Ithaca area offers a small-town lifestyle with the cultural and culinary qualities of larger cities, including the Moosewood Restaurant known for the first vegetarian cookbook. The climate of the region provides for a range of outdoor activities including boating/sailing, swimming, mountain biking and hiking in summer, to skiing and ice-skating in winter.
All applicants must submit a cover letter of interest, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, research and teaching vision statements, and arrange for at least three reference letters to be submitted electronically. Applications must be received by December 1, 2017, to receive full consideration. Application materials must be submitted electronically at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9686
