The Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) invites applications for Full Professor in Biomedical Engineering and/or Bioengineering. Qualified candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering or closely-related field and have demonstrated the ability to provide academic leadership, developed an internationally recognized record of scientific scholarship, and maintained significant external funding for their research programs. Faculty will be expected to maintain an externally funded research program, help fulfill the teaching requirements of the department, and take a leadership role in administering the research and educational missions of the department.
Created in the spring of 2010, the Department of Bioengineering is a key component of UTD's growth strategy. The Department of Bioengineering at UTD currently offers the BS, MS and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering. The MS and PhD degree programs are offered jointly with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UTSW) and the University of Texas at Arlington. The close proximity of UTD to UT Southwestern Medical Center offers outstanding collaborative opportunities in disease-oriented research involving animal models and human clinical translation. We are interested in recruiting candidates whose research interests span the research missions of both universities. Potential research programs include implantable devices, medical sensors, neural engineering, biomedical devices, medical robotics, computational and systems biology, translational neuroscience, brain injury, and biomedical imaging. The department is highly collaborative in nature; a successful research program will be able to support programmatic projects developed by leadership in the department and create strong collaborations with UTSW. UTD Faculty will have laboratory space on the UTSW campus in order to facilitate meaningful and productive research collaborations between the two universities. Joint appointments are encouraged.
The University of Texas at Dallas is situated in Richardson, one of the most attractive suburbs of the Dallas metropolitan area with several hundred high-tech companies within a few miles of the campus, including Texas Instruments, St. Jude Medical, Abbott Laboratories, Greatbatch, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Lennox, Rockwell-Collins, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, Fujitsu, Cisco Systems, and Zyvex. Opportunities for joint university-industry research projects as well as faculty led start-ups are excellent. The Erik Jonsson School is experiencing rapid growth, as a result, the school is expanding its existing programs and recruiting outstanding faculty. In addition to people and programs, The Bioengineering Department will move to a new $108 million state-of-the art Bioengineering and Science Building when it is completed in 2015.
In addition to Bioengineering, the Erik Johnson School is home to the Departments of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Material Science & Engineering, and Systems Engineering and has interdisciplinary programs in Computer Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, and Software Engineering.
