The School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, is seeking to fill one or more full-time (1.00 FTE), tenure-track, 9-month assistant professor positions in Bioengineering to begin September 16, 2018. Higher ranks may be considered depending upon the qualifications of the successful candidate. The OSU College of Engineering has committed to being recognized as a national model of inclusivity and collaboration. We strive to develop a community of faculty, students, and staff that is inclusive, collaborative, diverse, and centered on student success. As such, we seek applicants who will broaden our capacity to advance student success across individual identities, racial/ethnic categories and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The position requires a Ph.D. degree (by time of hire) in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or a closely-related field by the start of employment, as well as a demonstrable commitment to promoting and enhancing diversity and inclusion.
Desired expertise includes any area of bio/biomedical engineering, but ideally would fit within one or more of the college’s signature or targeted strategic research areas of engineering for health, advanced materials, clean energy, robotics, or advanced manufacturing. The successful candidate must have the academic preparation to teach core courses in the CBEE undergraduate curriculum, such as material & energy balances, transport phenomena, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, as well as introductory and more advanced courses in the bioengineering undergraduate and graduate program curricula.
The successful candidate is expected to develop a nationally recognized research program. The candidate will be expected to articulate how their planned research program fits within current activity in the School, College, and University. Industrial or national laboratory experience relevant to the qualifications above is preferred. The School has strong relationships with the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnology Institute, the OSU Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility, the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing, the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine, the OSU Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning, as well the medical device, biopharmaceuticals, and high tech industries in Oregon.
To review the full posting and apply, please submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter, teaching statement, research statement, and diversity statement, online at http://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/51257. To be assured full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017; however, the position will remain open until filled.
