Regeneration Next Initiative Department of Cell Biology Department of Biomedical Engineering Regeneration Next (RNI) is a venture to advance discovery research and education in the broad field of tissue regeneration, and to enable applications for regenerative medicine. RNI is partnering with the Department of Cell Biology and the Department of Biomedical Engineering to hire tenure-track faculty members at the rank of Assistant Professor. An appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level may be possible for exceptional senior applicants. We invite applications from accomplished candidates with expertise in developmental and cell biology, quantitative biology, imaging, stem cell biology, mechanisms of tissue regeneration, mechanobiology, tissue engineering or related areas. One appointment will be in the Department of Cell Biology in the School of Medicine, while the other will be in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the School of Engineering. Joint appointments across departments will be considered for qualified candidates.
Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. Women and underrepresented minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
Duke BME faculty members are engaged in a wide range of efforts to improve human health through research–from creating the world's first real-time, three-dimensional ultrasound diagnostic system to developing the first engineered blood vessels.
The department's close proximity to the Duke University Medical Center has fostered a highly interdisciplinary approach to research, with engineers work...ing closely with both biological scientists and physicians–collaborations enhanced by our innovative translational medicine partnership programs. This breadth of expertise is reflected in all our research programs, as we work to translate fundamental advances across the molecular, cellular, and organ scales into new developments for improved diagnosis and treatment of disease.
