Tenure-Track Faculty Position: Biomaterials, Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering
Department of Molecular Pathobiology
NYU College of  Dentistry

The Department of Molecular Pathobiology at the New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry seeks applications at the level of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor for a tenure track research-focused position in the area of Biomaterials, Biomedical Engineering, Nanomedicine or related disciplines.

The Department of Molecular Pathobiology has a strong and rapidly expanding research program with substantial support from the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and Foundations. Research in the Department focuses on understanding normal human biology and disease through studies of molecules, cells, tissues and systems as well as the engineering aspects of life science and medicine. Current interests include: cell signaling of pain, inflammation and cancer, developmental biology, skeletal and craniofacial biology, infectious diseases, tissue engineering and AI linked diagnostics. The Department wishes to recruit a highly creative scientist who will lead and maintain a cutting-edge and extramurally funded research program that will complement and synergize with current research activities in the Department. The ideal candidate will interact with faculty of NYU Dentistry, NYU Tandon School of Engineering, NYU School of Medicine as well as foster collaborations with the greater NYU and New York research communities. Individuals with interests in biomedical and chemical engineering, nanomedicine, and organoids and organs-on-a-chip modeling of human development and diseases are encouraged to apply.


Qualified candidates should hold a PhD, DDS, MD or equivalent higher degree, and have a demonstrated record of scholarly excellence illustrated by the publication of influential research papers and a record of substantial extramural funding. Candidates with K99/R00 or similar awards are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a robust externally funded research program and to contribute to the intellectual life of the Department by mentoring and instructing students and postdoctoral fellows and by contributing university and community service. Teaching requirements will be commensurate with the Department’s needs and the applicant’s qualifications.

Successful candidates will receive a competitive start-up package, substantial salary support commensurate with experience and rank, and will have access to a comprehensive benefits package through NYU. The Department of Molecular Pathobiology provides a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive community that fosters creativity, innovation and collaboration. The successful candidate will be encouraged to build collaborative linkages to other science, engineering, medical programs at NYU through affiliated positions in other synergistic departments. NYU is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive intellectual community, and strongly encourages women and minorities to apply.
