The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) are seeking applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in the area of biological engineering with health applications.  Areas of interest relevant to human health applications include, but are not limited to: molecular, cellular and / or tissue engineering, immunoengineering, biomaterials and biofabrication, biopharmaceuticals and bioprocessing, synthetic and systems biology, and human-microbe interactions.

We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and will leverage investments by the University, including the Biodesign Institute, and collaborations that promote interdisciplinary teaching and research.  Our health partners in the Valley include the Mayo Clinic (http://www.mayoclinic.com), Translational Genomics Institute (TGEN; https://www.tgen.org), Barrow Neurological Institute (http://www.thebarrow.org), Banner Health (http://www.bannerhealth.com) and Phoenix Children’s Hospital (http://www.phoenixchildrens.org).
