Faculty Positions in Biological Engineering
The MIT Department of Biological Engineering invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant professor level, to begin July 2017 or thereafter. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a science or engineering discipline related to biological engineering. A more senior faculty appointment may be considered in special cases. Candidates should aspire to direct a leading research program that fuses molecular/cellular bioscience with quantitative engineering analysis/synthesis approaches. Areas of high priority include microbial systems and infectious disease. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels as well as oversight of research, and candidates should be capable of instructing in our core biological engineering educational curricula.
Candidates must register with the BE search website at http://be-fac-search.mit.edu, and must submit application materials electronically to this website. Candidate applications should include a description of professional interests and goals in both teaching and research. Each application should include a curriculum vita and the names and addresses of three or more references who will provide recommendation letters. References should submit their letters directly at the http://be-fac-search.mit.edu website.
Applications received by 1st December 2016 will be given priority.
