## Position Overview
The University of Kansas School of Engineering (KU-SOE; engr.ku.edu) seeks outstanding individuals for a tenured/tenure-track position at all ranks within Bioengineering. Successful candidates are expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs on the KU campus and to contribute to the research community at-large. The successful candidate will have a tenured/tenure-track appointment in any relevant engineering department within KU-SOE. Applicants are expected to have earned a doctorate, or equivalent, in bioengineering/biomedical engineering or a closely related scientific or engineering discipline with a research emphasis in the area of bioengineering. The following position is open at all levels (tenured/tenure-track) with experience in any one of the following areas: nanomaterials, bio-materials, 3D nanofabrication, micro- and nanofluidics, surface coatings, biomedical imaging, biomedical micro/nanodevices (in vivo or in vitro), tissue engineering or mechanics, biosensing, and/or biofluid mechanics (computational or experimental). Exceptional applicants in other closely related areas to the above topics may be considered as well. The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the effective date of appointment.
The BioEngineering Program (www.bio.engr.ku.edu) within KU-SOE was founded in 2007 and since, has expanded its ranks to 21 core faculty (4 at KU Medical Center), and 50 affiliated members. The BioEngineering Program offers graduate degrees in six different tracks including bioimaging, bioinformatics, biomaterials and tissue engineering, biomechanics and neural engineering, biomedical product design and development, and biomolecular engineering. The Program has approximately 50 graduate students and offers MS and PhD degrees in Bioengineering as well as an MD/PhD program. Bioengineering faculty engage in collaborative research projects across multiple areas of interest within and outside the University. There are many interdisciplinary opportunities involving schools at KU and the KU Medical Center (KUMC) in Kansas City, KS (www.kumc.edu). KUMC has recently been designated as a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center by the National Institutes of Health.
The KU-SOE is rapidly expanding and plans to add thirty new faculty lines over a 5 year period, with expanded research and teaching facilities. KU-SOE offers 12 undergraduate, 19 Master?s and 11 PhD degree programs. In addition, KU-SOE has recently added 185,000 sq. ft. of space situated in 4 new structures for promoting research and teaching. The KU-SOE will also benefit from a new Class 100/1000 state-of-the-art cleanroom facility to be opened in Fall 2018.
The University of Kansas is focused on four key campus-wide strategic initiatives: (1) Sustaining the Planet, Powering the World; (2) Promoting Well-Being, Finding Cures; (3) Building Communities, Expanding Opportunities; and (4) Harnessing Information, Multiplying Knowledge. For more information, see http://www.provost.ku.edu/planning/themes/ . Successful candidates should describe in their application materials how their work addresses one or more of KU?s strategic initiatives.
