Open Rank (Assistant, Associate, Full Professor) Department of Medical Engineering – University of South Florida
The Department of Medical Engineering invites applications for tenure/ tenure track positions, which are expected to commence August, 2023. The successful candidate should be an emerging leader in one of our research emphasis areas (preferred: Biomedical Imaging/ Bioelectronics; Cell/ Tissue Engineering; Neuro/ Rehabilitation Engineering) applied to any biomedical system, with innovative research ideas and excellent training. Opportunities exist to innovate undergraduate and graduate level teaching in biomedical engineering, including those in clinical and hospital settings in association with academic clinicians. Established leaders may propose to develop novel initiatives and expand or assemble/ relocate high impact research groups. We strongly value technology transfer, and the move of existing startup companies to Tampa Bay.
An earned Ph.D. from a biomedical engineering, or related engineering or quantitative science discipline(s) and, evidence of potential (Asst) or established (Assoc, Full) national prominence through superior scholarship, and the ability to teach and mentor underrepresented groups is required. Competitive startup packages and top-quality lab space are available in newly constructed or renovated space on the USF campus or in the Heart Institute, part of a new 14-story structure in downtown Tampa near the primary clinical activities of USF Health.
The University of South Florida (USF) is one of only three top tier public universities in the state of Florida categorized as having Preeminent Research Status, based on its rapidly growing external research portfolio, Research 1 ranking, and its business incubator campus which houses the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame. No other public university has risen faster in national rankings over the past ten years than USF, which is a top 50 public research university, with an annual budget of $1.5B and economic impact of $6.0B in the Tampa Bay Region. USF has earned widespread national recognition for its success graduating under-represented minority and limited-income students at rates equal to or higher than white and higher income students.
USF is building international standing in biomedical engineering (BME) by investing in a new Department of Medical Engineering, a true joint department between the USF Medical School and College of Engineering, the latter of which serves nearly 6,000 students. This new department governs our highly successful graduate programs in BME and a new, recently accredited undergraduate major in BME.
