Synthetic/Systems BioEngineering faculty opening at the University of Pittsburgh

#1

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of
Engineering (engineering.pitt.edu/bioengineering) invites applications from accomplished
individuals with a PhD or equivalent degree in bioengineering, biomedical engineering, or
closely related disciplines for an open-rank, tenured/tenure-stream faculty position. We wish
to recruit an individual with strong research accomplishments in Synthetic or Systems
Biology, with preference given to research focus areas related to mammalian cellular
engineering, immune engineering, or neural regeneration. It is expected that this
individual will complement our current strengths in biomechanics, bioimaging, molecular,
cellular, and systems engineering, medical product engineering, neural engineering, and
tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In addition, candidates must be committed to
contributing to high quality education of a diverse student body at both the undergraduate
and graduate levels.

Interested individuals should send the following as a single, self-contained PDF attachment
via email to bioeapp@pitt.edu (include “AY20 PITT BioE SynBio-SysBio” in the subject line):
(1) cover letter, (2) complete CV (including funding record, if applicable), (3) research
statement, (4) teaching statement, (5) three representative publications, and (6) names and
complete contact information of at least four references. To ensure full consideration,
applications must be received by June 30, 2019. However, applications will be reviewed as
they are received. Early submission is highly encouraged.

The Department of Bioengineering is fully committed to a diverse academic environment and
places high priority on attracting female and underrepresented minority candidates. We
strongly encourage candidates from these groups to apply for the position.
