The Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a tenure-track hire in the area of biomedical engineering. Positions will be nominally at the Assistant Professor level; candidates are expected to hold a baccalaureate degree in engineering and a doctorate in biomedical or electrical engineering. Preferences will be given to highly qualified candidates with research interests in the areas of (1) synthetic and systems biology or (2) biosensing and imaging. The hire will support bachelor and master programs in biomedical engineering and will augment existing faculty associated with an interdisciplinary PhD program in Bioengineering. The anticipated start date is Fall 2018.
Successful candidates will develop and maintain an active program of externally-funded research, advise and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and contribute broadly to undergraduate and graduate teaching in the Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering. The University values interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches to engineering education. Strong curricular and research ties exist between the engineering departments and the University’s College of Medicine, and it is expected that the successful candidates will leverage this opportunity. The engineering programs at UVM have seen significant recent growth in undergraduate and graduate student enrollments and research funding, and that growth has accelerated with the introduction of new programs such as the biomedical engineering degrees. To support this growth, the University is undergoing its largest-ever capital project with the construction of the STEM Complex. The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, rated as one of the best small cities in America.

The University of Vermont, founded in 1791, is a public, comprehensive institution. Programs are offered through the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Education and Social Services, and Engineering and Mathematics; the Schools of Allied Health Sciences, Business Administration, Natural Resources, and Nursing; and the Environmental Studies Program. It blends the close fa...culty-student relationships most commonly found at liberal arts colleges with the dynamic exchange of knowledge associated with a major research university. For UVM students, this means 2,500 course offerings representing more than 90 majors, hands-on research opportunities supported by state-of-the-art facilities, a student-faculty ratio that encourages close interaction between students and professors and a vibrant campus community in which 80 percent of its students are involved in athletics, special-interest clubs, and volunteer service. Its 425-acre campus is located Burlington, 100 miles south of Montreal.
