The Department is seeking candidates at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with an existing track record or outstanding research potential. A Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering or in a related quantitative discipline is required. Applicants must be able to teach core undergraduate and graduate courses, and be willing to help establish an innovative multi-disciplinary curriculum in the field of biomedical engineering. Candidates whose research interests complement, yet clearly extend, existing research strengths are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) has existing strengths in the areas of tissue engineering, cellular and molecular engineering, multi-scale biomechanics, biomedical imaging, therapeutics, micro- and nanosystems, and computational and systems biology, with an integrating theme of molecular and/or genetically based approaches to the measurement and modeling of biological systems, and to the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

While all areas of expertise will be considered, candidates with a background in immuno-engineering are preferred. Candidates that complement existing research strengths within BME in quantitative biology tools, tissue engineering, stem cell biology, synthetic biology, multiscale systems biology, nanotechnology/nanotherapeutic drug delivery, degenerative diseases, imaging/optics and the translation of engineering advances in medicine are of particular interest. In addition, the research program of successful candidates is expected to integrate various campus strengths (e.g., of the School of Medicine, the College of Biological Sciences, and the School of Veterinary Medicine).

UC Davis is an affirmative action/equal employment opportunity employer and is dedicated to recruiting a diverse faculty community. We welcome all qualified applicants to apply, including women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans.
