Tenure/Tenure-Stream Faculty Position in Cardiovascular Bioengineering


Tenure Type: Tenure
Department: Bioengineering

The Department of Bioengineering, Swanson School of Engineering (engineering.pitt.edu/bioengineering) and the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine (anesthesiology.pitt.edu) invite applications from accomplished individuals with a PhD or equivalent degree in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, or closely related disciplines for an open-rank, tenured/tenure-stream faculty position. We wish to recruit an individual with strong research accomplishments in Cardiovascular Bioengineering with preference given to research focus on cardiovascular monitoring with mobile and wearable devices and associated data analytics for anesthesia, perioperative medicine and critical care applications. It is expected that this individual will also complement the current strengths of the two departments in medical devices, patient monitoring, and data analytics. 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). 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 (~150 PhD or MD/PhD and ~50 MS students) degrees. The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine is the largest academic program in the US and is a pioneer in clinical and scientific research. The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine (mirm.pitt.edu), the Vascular Medicine Institute (vmi.pitt.edu), the Brain Institute (braininstitute.pitt.edu), and Starzl Transplantation Institute (http://www.stiresearch.health.pitt.edu/) offer many collaborative research opportunities. The Center for Medical Innovation (https://www.engineering.pitt.edu/CMI/), the Coulter Translational Partnership II Program (engineering.pitt.edu/coulter) and the Center for Commercial Applications of Healthcare Data (healthdataalliance.com/university-of-pittsburgh) provide biomedical innovation and translation opportunities.

Interested individuals should send the following as a single, self-contained PDF attachment via email to bioeapp@pitt.edu (include “AY20 PITT BioE-Anesthesiology” in the subject line): (1) cover letter, (2) complete CV (including funding record, if applicable), (3) research statement, (4) teaching statement, (5) three representative publications, and (6) names and complete contact information of at least four references. To ensure full consideration, applications must be received by September 30, 2019. However, applications will be reviewed as they are received.  Early submission is highly encouraged.

The Departments of Bioengineering and Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine are fully 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.
