Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Tissue Engineering

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 chembe@jhu.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by July 31, 2014. 

The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

                                                                                                    

Teaching Faculty Position in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

 

Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is seeking a creative and motivated individual for a teaching track faculty position at the lecturer, senior lecturer, associate teaching professor or teaching professor levels in the department.  The faculty member would help establish an innovative, high-quality graduate Master program in Nanobioengineering.  The individual selected will contribute to the department’s educational mission through teaching in the classroom and laboratory, course development, and mentoring talented undergraduate and graduate students.  The faculty member will also be responsible for assisting in the development and management of our growing Masters program. A doctorate in Chemical Engineering or a related field is required.

Johns Hopkins recently established the teaching professor track for those faculty primarily involved with education.  Criteria for promotion include excellence in teaching, educational publications, curriculum development, pedagogical innovation and program coordination.  It is a long-time contractual appointment, as opposed to a tenure track faculty position.  A position of senior lecturer requires teaching with distinction for no fewer than five years at a university similar to Johns Hopkins.  The titles of associate teaching professor and teaching professor requires a record of teaching experience and seniority commensurate with that of tenure-track associate professors and professors.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and interests and a list of three references in a single PDF document to chembe@jhu.edu with the title “Teaching Faculty Search”.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by February 28, 2014.

 The Department is committed to a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.  The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and does not discriminate against any individual or group of individuals on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status or genetic information.
