Faculty Position in Bioengineering
The School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) at Oregon State University (OSU) in Corvallis, Oregon, seeks to fill a full-time (1.00 FTE), nine-month, position for a tenured associate professor or tenured full professor in bioengineering, to begin September 16, 2024. Upon appointment to the faculty, rank will be determined commensurate with qualifications.
This new position will build on existing strengths and support continued growth of the bioengineering program at Oregon State. Over the last decade, undergraduate enrollment has doubled, and a new graduate program was established with strengths in the core areas of systems and computational biology, biosensors, and cell and tissue engineering. The program leverages the College of Engineering’s signature research areas of artificial intelligence, materials science, robotics, and advanced manufacturing. Bioengineering program faculty enjoy collaborations across the university and throughout the region, including with Oregon Health & Science University, the University of Oregon’s Knight Campus, the Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility, the Center for Quantitative Life Sciences, the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine, and the STEM Research Center, as well as with medical device, biopharmaceutical, and high-tech industries in Oregon. Bioengineering at Oregon State is headquartered in Johnson Hall, a state-of-the-art research and education facility that opened in 2016. In addition, the Jen-Hsun and Lori Huang Collaborative Innovation Complex, housing a transdisciplinary research and teaching center with one of the nation’s most powerful supercomputers, will open in 2025.
The position requires a doctorate in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, or a closely related field. The candidate’s research program should be in an area of health-related engineering with a substantial computational component and complementarity with existing activities at the university. The candidate will be expected to articulate how their planned research program fits within the current activity in the school, college, and university and can leverage university resources. Duties include teaching, research and scholarly activities, and service. The successful candidate is expected to have developed a nationally or internationally recognized research program, depending on rank. The successful candidate must also have the academic preparation to teach introductory and more advanced courses in the bioengineering undergraduate and graduate curricula, and to develop new courses that serve these programs.
