The School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University invites applications for a new faculty position in the area of Bioengineering, at the associate or full professor rank. We welcome applications from all areas in biological engineering, including but not limited to engineering approaches to controlling and understanding intracellular self-assembly, tissue-level biological organization, and/or biological networks, as well as critical bio-related technology development (computational methods, sensing and imaging, biofabrication). Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, Physics, Engineering, or a related subject, and have a demonstrated record of excellence and leadership in research. We seek faculty members who will be instrumental to creating an ecosystem of excellence and diversity, with a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.
Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science has a strong core of faculty engaged in Bioengineering-related research, distributed in all engineering departments, particularly Chemical and Biological Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. These ongoing efforts also build on Princeton's historical strengths in interdisciplinary biology, focused in the departments of Molecular Biology and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, together with the Lewis Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. We seek creative and enthusiastic candidates with the background and skills to build upon and complement existing strengths, while leading Princeton's expanding Bioengineering program into new and exciting research areas in the future.
To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications and presentations, a 3-5 page summary of research accomplishments and future plans, a 1-2 page teaching statement, and contact information for at least five references online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/3443 . Personal statements that summarize leadership experience and contributions to diversity are encouraged.
This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
