George Mason University-Multiple Positions

Department of Bioengineering

Multiple Open-Rank, Term Faculty Positions

The George Mason University Department of Bioengineering, within the College of Engineering and Computing (CEC), invites applications for one or more renewable-term, non tenure-track, instructional positions, beginning Spring 2023 or Fall 2023.

Responsibilities:

Responsibilities include teaching core undergraduate and graduate courses in bioengineering, developing electives in accordance with their area of expertise, advise students and mentor senior design teams, and service duties associated with the department’s degree programs.

Required Qualifications:

Applicants for the position of Assistant/Associate or Full Professor must have received a PhD in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field by the start date of the position. Applicants who have received an MS in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field by the start date of the position, will be considered for Instructor positions. Applicants should possess a strong commitment to and demonstrated excellence in teaching. Applicants at the rank of Associate or Full Professor must have interests in outreach, curriculum development, and significant experience in an academic setting in teaching for at least six years post PhD.

Preferred Qualifications:

Applicants in all areas of bioengineering/biomedical engineering will be given serious consideration. The candidate must have experience on one or more of our research pillars: biomedical imaging and devices, computational biomedicine, biomaterials and nanomedicine, and neurotechnology and computational neuroscience. We are particularly interested in candidates to teach in the areas of biomechanics, biomaterials, computational biomedicine, physiological modelling, bioinstrumentation, electronics, and imaging. Preference will be given to candidates with a PhD, teaching experience, and a record of peer-reviewed publications. Administrative and/or managerial experience is a plus. The department and the Institute place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.

About the Department: Mason’s Department of Bioengineering, https://bioengineering.gmu.edu, has 13 faculty members whose research can be divided into four pillars: biomedical imaging and devices, computational biomedicine, biomaterials and nanomedicine, and neurotechnology and computational neuroscience. Newly constructed research facilities in these focus areas opened in 2018. Bioengineering faculty research is funded by a number of federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. These agencies and other sources bring the department’s active research funding total to more than $20 million. Undergraduate enrollment in the thriving ABET-accredited undergraduate program totals more than 210 students. A relatively new, rapidly growing PhD program and a new master’s program (launched in 2018) complete the academic offerings.

For full consideration, applicants must apply for position number F682AZ at https://jobs.gmu.edu/; complete and submit the online application; and upload a cover letter summarizing your teaching experience and why you are ideally qualified for this instructional faculty position; a statement of professional goals including your perspective on teaching and research (to attach as ‘Other Doc’), a complete CV with publications, a statement on what diversity and inclusion means to you (to attach as ‘Other Doc’), and the names of three professional references with contact information. The review of applications will begin December 1, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
