As part of the strategic plan for expanding biomedical and health science research in emerging fields, the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Watson College, Binghamton University (BU), State University of New York (SUNY) invites applications for one tenured faculty position at the associate or full professor level with an expected start date as early as January 4, 2024.
BU is ranked one of the top 40 and a premier R1 public research university. University’s direct impact to regional economy reaches $1.2 billion in the recent years. The recent $113 million research award from Economic Development Agency (EDA) further catalyzes and fosters knowledge transfer and partnerships across industrial and academia to advance technology development and innovation in science and engineering. The university attracts outstanding students and award-winning faculty including 2019 Nobel Laureate Dr. Stanley Whittingham who are partners in active discovery.
We are seeking an exceptional and well-established biomedical engineer who has outstanding track records in funding, scholarship, teaching and service. We seek applications from candidates in all areas of biomedical engineering; however, we are particularly interested in the following the area: AI/Data Science in Biomedical Engineering (brain-computer interface, computer vision, machine learning, digital pathology, biomedical big data, cell/tissue/organ atlas, biorobotics, AI-empowered cell biomanufacturing and tissue biofabrication, etc.) Candidates with a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness are preferred.
The candidate will be expected to lead efforts to broaden the university's Road Map Initiative in the Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence in Health Science (https://binghamton.edu/tae/). The Department is particularly strong in advanced biomanufacturing, stem cells, tissue engineering/regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, cardiovascular engineering, biomaterials, organ-on-a-chip, wearable biosensors, and biomechanics. The BME Department is the home of the Center of Biomanufacturing for Regenerative Medicine (CBRM). The Department hosts a NIST PREP postdoc and graduate training program in standards and technology. The candidate will be expected to develop a plan that synergizes our strategic partnership with the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Upstate Medical University, and CBRM. The Southern Tier has received a $500 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) award from New York State. The new hires will be expected to strategically contribute to this program.

Biomedical engineering encompasses biological, physiological, medical and social systems, design, and development of complex, knowledge-intensive systems. Biomedical engineering educates individuals in the art of product and process development for the improvement of human health and quality of life.
The field is excellent for those considering healthcare, agricultural, aquaculture, bioprocesses, biotechnology, environmental, food, microbial system, and rehabilitation engineering.
Graduates are employable in oversight organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), medical centers, and research institutions.
The biomedical engineering curriculum builds upon the base provided by the freshman-year engineering program in Watson College.
The Bachelor of Science program in Biomedical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org , under the General Criteria and the Criteria for Bioengineering, Biomedical, and Similarly Named Engineering Programs Program Criteria.
The mission of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Binghamt...on University is to
provide interdisciplinary research and education at both undergraduate and graduate
levels. We aim to advance human health and aid in the economic development of the
region, state, and country by providing state-of-the-art, accessible and affordable
education. We seek to prepare our students to serve their communities by creating a
free and open learning environment that fosters their intellectual and ethical growth,
advances the frontiers of scientific inquiry, and contributes with distinction to the
international community of scholarship. BME’s program ranking has consistently moved
up in the nation, based on U.S . News & World Report. We have attracted more and more
brilliant undergraduate and graduate students, particularly minority students.
The BME Department strives to nurture young biomedical engineers who will bridge the
present with the next generation of technologies. The BME Department looks to
cultivate leaders and foster entrepreneurship to advance human health and well-being in
a new medicine era. This is accomplished through the integration of engineering
principles, physical sciences, advanced biology and lifelong learning in biomedical
engineering. With this integration, our students gain an understanding of biophysical
phenomena, disease prevention, diagnostics, disease treatment, health care systems
and regulatory considerations. We engage motivated and talented undergraduate and
graduate students in the classroom, research laboratory and clinic. We impart the spirit
of our mission to them as we prepare them for future careers as professional,
knowledgeable and ethical leaders in academia and industry.
Our students earn a bachelor of science (BS), master of science (MS), doctor of
philosophy (Ph.D.), or a 4+1 accelerated BS/MS combined degree in biomedical
