The Brady Urological Institute of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering invites applications for a joint tenure-track faculty position to build and lead our program in Tissue Engineering. The appointment will be at a professorial rank commensurate with qualifications and is available immediately. We seek a highly qualified scientist or engineer who can lead the growth of the program and complement our dynamic, interdisciplinary team of faculty and researchers in both departments. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research seeks to understand interactions between cells and biomaterials. A competitive salary and research start-up package will be offered.
The successful candidate will provide academic and research leadership for faculty and students participating reconstructive and regenerative medicine in both divisions. The successful candidate is expected to collaborate with other researchers in biomedical and engineering research across the campuses. A Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering or a closely related field and significant research experience in a growth area within the biomedical sciences are required. The program is particularly interested in applicants with experience in translational studies of biomaterials. The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate strong commitment to excellence in education, teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels based on the needs of the School of Medicine and the Whiting School of Engineering and establish a strong, externally funded research program.
Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, reprints of recent papers, a statement of research interests and teaching plans, and the names of three references to: Chair, Search Committee, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland 221, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218; or firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by September 18, 2014.
