Faculty Openings in Biomedical Engineering

The Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University is inviting applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the assistant or associate professor level. This rapidly growing school represents a major investment by Purdue and the State of Indiana to integrate engineering and the life sciences in education and research. The school currently administers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs as well as a combined MD/PhD program with the Indiana University School of Medicine. The integrative Martin C. Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering houses the school’s burgeoning education and research programs.

We are seeking a highly qualified, creative individual with substantial research and teaching experience in sensors and technologies to diagnose, treat, or monitor metabolic diseases. The new faculty member will be expected to develop and teach graduate and undergraduate level biomedical engineering courses, develop a strong, externally-funded research program, and help foster school growth.

The new faculty member will have the opportunity to collaborate with numerous investigators in the Purdue Colleges of Engineering, Pharmacy, Science, Health and Human Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine, and the Indiana University School of Medicine. In addition, Purdue has established Discovery Park, a highly interdisciplinary enterprise dedicated to translational research that includes the state-of-the-art Birck Nanotechnology Center and Bindley Bioscience Center. Tremendous opportunities for collaboration also exist with a wealth of Indiana-based companies in the medical device, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries.

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent doctoral level degree in biomedical engineering or closely related field. Applicants should submit a detailed resume, a description of teaching and research plans, copies of selected publications and a list of four professional references to Professor George R. Wodicka, Head, Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, 206 South Martin Jischke Drive, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, 47907-2032 or via email to jo@purdue.edu. Screening of candidates will begin October 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. A background check will be required for employment in this position.

Purdue University College of Engineering and College of Science Faculty Opening in Integrated Imaging

Purdue University’s College of Engineering and College of Science have identified imaging as a major thrust for cross-disciplinary research and education and are accepting applications for tenured and tenure track faculty (Assistant and Associate Professor) in this area. Imaging research has become the key to progress in fields such as medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, earth and atmospheric science; and the resulting technologies are addressing major human needs in healthcare, medicine, security, manufacturing, and communication. Purdue University has embarked on a new “integrated-imaging” initiative to exploit the synergy between science and engineering, algorithms and devices, sensors and applications. This initiative will build on strengths and leverage the imaging capabilities of both Purdue Colleges and Purdue’s Discovery and Research Parks.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in Engineering, Science or a related field.  They should have a distinguished academic record, exceptional potential for world-class research, and a commitment to teach in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Specific research fields of interest in the integrated-imaging cluster include, but are not limited to electron and light microscopy, whole body imaging, image processing, inverse methods, multimodal imaging, hyperspectral imaging, and sensor systems. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in topics related to integrated imaging, conduct research in their field of expertise, publish and present research findings, participate in professional activities, and advise graduate student research.  The primary faculty appointment will be in a school of the College of Engineering or a department of the College of Science, and will depend on the candidate’s qualifications. 

Submit your application online at: https://engineering.purdue.edu/Engr/InfoFor/Employment . The application should include a cover letter, a complete and detailed vitae, and statements of research and teaching interests. Also, please include names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses for three or more references. For questions regarding the application process, please contact Marion Ragland (ragland@purdue.edu). Screening of applications will begin November 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. A background check will be required for employment in this position.
