The College of Engineering at Boston University has embarked on a bold new strategic plan to pursue excellence and societal impact along convergent and collaborative research themes in a representative and inclusive environment. The College has been nationally recognized for its commitment to diversity by the American Society for Engineering Education and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The Departments of Biomedical Engineering (BME), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME) have multiple openings for tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor. Although we will consider all candidates whose work matches the research themes of the departments, these searches will focus in particular on the following convergent themes:
 

• Novel Device Technologies Applied to Predictive, Digital, and Personalized Medicine. We seek a candidate who develops and exploits breakthroughs in biosensing or medical imaging and takes advantage of AI/ML methods to improve human heath. The ideal candidate would form a bridge among efforts in BME, ECE, and the Division of Systems Engineering.

We attract exceptional graduate students and faculty talent at all levels and have strong ties to the BU School of Medicine, as well as other top medical research centers in the Boston area. Research activity by primary BME faculty is over $30M per year and well over $50M when affiliated faculty are included. The BME department believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. Our faculty benefit from strong infrastructure to translate research advances into new applications that impact society. BME faculty lead and participate in several high-profile, interdisciplinary research centers, including the Biological Design Center, the Precision Diagnostics Center, BUNano, the Neurophotonics Center, the Center for Systems Neuroscience, the Photonics Center, the Hariri Center for Computational Science and Engineering, the Center for Multiscale and Translational Mechanobiology, and the NSF Engineering Research Center in Cellular Metamaterials.

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate area, have postdoctoral experience, and show potential for leading an independent, vibrant, world-class research program. We place high value on excellence in teaching, teamwork, and outreach. We are especially eager to recruit a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensure an inclusive, equitable, and diverse community where all can thrive.
