New York University: Full Time Contract Faculty, Department of Biomedical Engineering

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for a full time, non-tenured, renewable faculty position in Biomedical Engineering, with a start date of January 15, 2019. New York University (NYU) is one of the top private universities in the United States. NYU recently established the new Department of Biomedical Engineering, to build a bridge between its schools of engineering and medicine.

Our mission is to excel in research, teaching, and entrepreneurship. We aim to inspire and educate engineers for the 21st century. Students at all levels are engaged in projects leading to new engineering approaches and technologies to promote human health. Biomedical Engineering is inherently multidisciplinary, and the new department reflects that breadth in its faculty, educational programs, and research. The NYU Department of Biomedical Engineering currently offers the MS degree in Biomedical Engineering, and is in the process of renewing the PhD degree program. Undergraduate programs are planned for the future.

We are committed to quality, integrity, and respect for each other. We take pride in our high numbers of women students and students who are the first in their family to go to college. We seek faculty who have a real passion for a culturally diverse environment. Tandon belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), which assists with dual-career searches.
