The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to invite applications for a tenure-track position in the area of neural engineering, with an anticipated starting date of July 1, 2018 or thereafter. The position will be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.
Founded in 1826, Case Western Reserve University is a private research university located in Cleveland, Ohio. The site of the famous Michelson-Morley interferometer experiment, the university is associated with 16 Nobel laureates. The Case School of Engineering actively promotes interdisciplinary research collaboration through university-level institutes primarily focused on materials, health care, and energy.
We seek outstanding candidates who have established a competitively-funded individual research program in neural engineering and who have a strategic vision for future research within our neural engineering community. The research areas of interest include, but are not limited to: (1) the development of innovative brain recording and stimulation techniques for neuromodulation and (2) basic and applied research focused on neural interfacing and neurostimulation applications. Clinical translation is a goal of our program, so previous experience in the neuromodulation/neurostimulation industry is preferred. A doctorate in Biomedical Engineering or a closely related Science/Engineering field is required. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the core undergraduate and graduate teaching missions of the department, and to engage in departmental, institutional and professional service activities.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements on teaching and research, copy of three representative journal papers, and the names and contact information of at least four professional referees. Please send these documents electronically in one PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering, which is jointly housed in the School of Medicine and in the Case School of Engineering, was one of the pioneering BME programs in the country (founded 1968), and is home to 31 tenure-track faculty, over 150 graduate students and approximately 500 undergraduate students. Its faculty are international research leaders in biomaterials and nanomedicine, imaging, neural engineering, and computational imaging and personalized diagnostics. The BME department is also home to the endowed Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership that promotes translational research and supports collaborative translational research projects to improve patient care and accelerate the delivery of healthcare technology from academia to the marketplace.
