The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tulane University is pleased to invite applications for the position of John Martinez Professor of Biomedical Engineering, which will be filled at the full professor level. This position is available as early as July 2013; however, the search will remain active until the positions are filled.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering, founded in 1977, is an ABET accredited undergraduate program with approximately 200 undergraduate majors and 50 graduate students. Since July 2006, the Biomedical Engineering has been administratively located in School of Science and Engineering. This academic structure is beneficial to the Department of Biomedical Engineering because of the strong emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions and an administrative structure that reduces the overhead associated with these interactions.
We are particularly interested in candidates who will leverage our existing departmental research areas and the development of advanced technologies. We therefore seek candidates with demonstrated leadership skills who will contribute to a rapidly growing department with strong links to the physical, mathematical and biological sciences, Tulane's Health Sciences Center (the schools of Medicine, Public Health and Tropical Medicine and the National Primate Research Center), the Center for Computational Science, the interdisciplinary program in Neurosciences, the New Orleans Cancer Center, the New Orleans Bioinnovation Center and the newly developed NSF IGERT-supported interdisciplinary PhD program in bioinnovation.
Applicants must have an earned doctorate and have an active, externally funded, research program. The applicant will be expected to be actively involved in our undergraduate and graduate programs, consistent with having a fundamental interest in both teaching and research.
