University of California, Davis, Davis, CA, United States
Employer Description

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is committed to building an excellent, diverse, and inclusive faculty, staff, and student body. The department consists of 32 faculty members and serves over 450 undergraduate students in an ABET accredited program. The department has existing strengths in the areas of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine, cellular and molecular engineering, biomechanics, biomedical imaging, micro/nano systems, therapeutics, and computational/systems biology. BME faculty benefit from close collaborations with the School of Medicine, Division of Biological Sciences, and School of Veterinary Medicine. The Department is home to state-of-the-art resources and facilities that serve both our academic and research programs, including the Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging and the TEAM (Translating Engineering Advances to Medicine) Design, Prototyping, and Fabrication Laboratories. The department is also highly engaged in the campus Aggie Square innovation initiative, located at the UC Davis Sacramento campus, including the development of new undergraduate and graduate focused education programs.

Job Description

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), in the College of Engineering at UC Davis, invites candidates for a tenure-track/tenured Assistant or Associate Professor in Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging faculty position.  The resulting hire will not be made above the associate rank, regardless of the proposed appointee's qualifications.

Candidates should have an existing track record in Biophotonics, specifically in Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging, and be open to collaborative studies with faculty and scientists at the UC Davis Medical Center, as well as the newly established National Center for Interventional Biophotonic Technologies funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The expectation will be to build an internationally successful and interdisciplinary research program, be active in acquiring extramural funding, participate in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate level, and be willing to help establish an innovative multi-disciplinary curriculum in the field of medical Biophotonics.

To be considered for an appointment to the Associate Professor rank, candidates should have a commensurate record of scholarly accomplishments, teaching experience, and a sustained externally funded research program. Preference will be given to candidates that can demonstrate a commitment to collaboration in their previous research program, in particular with clinical departments and the medical imaging community.

We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate a history of successful, team-based research, interaction with faculty, students, and other scientists from diverse backgrounds. In addition, the research program of successful candidates is expected to integrate various campus strengths (e.g., of the School of Medicine, the School of Veterinary Medicine, UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research).

Please review the position description here: https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF05938 and apply by October 30, 2023 for full consideration.
