The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering (www.engineering.pitt.edu/bioengineering) invites applications from accomplished individuals with an earned PhD or equivalent degree in bioengineering or closely related disciplines. This is a tenured/tenure-stream, open-rank position and we wish to recruit individuals with strong research accomplishments in biomimetics, synthetic biology, and the engineering of living systems. However, outstanding candidates that complement our current strengths in biomechanics, neural engineering, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, medical device engineering, and bioimaging, will also be considered. In addition, candidates must be committed to contributing to high quality education of a diverse student body at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.Located in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh is a top-five institution in terms of NIH funding, and provides a rich environment for interdisciplinary research, strengthened through its affiliation with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and collaborations with Carnegie Mellon University, including the joint Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (www.cnbc.cmu.edu). The Department of Bioengineering, consistently ranked among the top programs in the country, has outstanding research and educational programs, offering undergraduate (270 students, sophomore-to-senior years) and graduate (140 PhD or MD/PhD and 50 MS students) degrees. The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine (www.mirm.pitt.edu), Vascular Medicine Institute (www.vmi.pitt.edu), Brain Institute (www.braininstitute.pitt.edu), Center for Neuroscience (cnup.neurobio.pitt.edu), and Drug Discovery Institute (www.upddi.pitt.edu) offer many collaborative research opportunities.Interested individuals should send the following as a single, self-contained PDF attachment via email to firstname.lastname@example.org(include AY17 PITT BIOE POSITION in the subject line): (1) cover letter, (2) complete CV (including funding record), (3) research statement, (4) teaching statement, (5) three representative publications, and (6) names and complete contact information of six references. We intend to fill this position as soon as possible and candidates are encouraged to apply early because applications will be reviewed as they are received.The Department of Bioengineering is strongly committed to a diverse academic environment and places high priority on attracting female and underrepresented minority candidates. We strongly encourage candidates from these groups to apply for the position.
