The School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, seeks to fill one or more full-time (1.00 FTE), tenure-track, 9-month assistant professor positions in Bioengineering to begin September 16, 2019. Higher ranks may be considered depending upon the qualifications of the successful candidate.
The bioengineering program at OSU has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, including a more than doubling of the undergraduate student enrollment and the establishment of a new interdisciplinary bioengineering graduate program with strengths in the core areas of biomaterials, biomedical devices and instrumentation, human performance engineering, medical imaging and systems and computational biology. The program is headquartered in a new, state-of-the-art research and education facility that opened in 2016. The School of CBEE and bioengineering program faculty enjoy collaborations across OSU and the region, including strong relationships with the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Institute, the OSU Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility, the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing, the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine, the OSU Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning, as well as medical device, biopharmaceutical, and high tech industries in Oregon.
The OSU College of Engineering has committed to being recognized as a national model of inclusivity and collaboration. To address this, CBEE faculty and staff are engaged in a comprehensive initiative to make bold and deliberate changes to the both the educational and workplace environments within the unit. We have three related goals: (1) to create a culture where students in the CBEE community feel valued and belong; (2) to create a learning environment that prompts students and faculty to meaningfully connect curricular and co-curricular activities and experiences to each other and to professional practice; and (3) to advance the practice of equity, inclusion, and justice for women and others from historically underrepresented groups who are tenure-lined faculty. This work is resourced by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) REvolutionizing engineering and computer science Departments (RED) program and the NSF’s ADVANCE program.
The position requires a Ph.D. degree (by time of hire) in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a closely-related field. Desired expertise includes any area of bio/biomedical engineering, but ideally would fit within one or more of the college’s signature or targeted strategic research areas of precision health, advanced materials, robotics, or advanced manufacturing. Areas of special interest include cell engineering, biomaterials and drug delivery, and biosensors and instrumentation. Duties include classroom teaching, research and scholarly activities, and service to the school, college, and university. The successful candidate is expected to develop a nationally recognized research program. Thus, the candidate will be expected to articulate how their planned research program fits within current activity in the School, College, and University. The successful candidate must also have the academic preparation to teach introductory and more advanced courses in the bioengineering undergraduate and the interdisciplinary graduate program curricula, and to develop new courses that serve both programs. Further, the position requires a demonstrable commitment to engaging in diversity and inclusion initiatives.
To review the posting and apply, please go to http://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/68054. To be assured full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2018; however, the position will remain open until filled.
OSU seeks diversity as a source of enrichment for our university community. We are an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and particularly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, LGBTQ community members, and others who share our vision of an inclusive community. OSU offers many programs to support work-life balance and is sensitive to dual career needs.
