The Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level in Bioengineering and/ or Biomedical Engineering.
Created in the spring of 2010, the Department of Bioengineering is a key component of UTD’s growth strategy. The successful candidates will have a unique opportunity to shape this nascent department. Of particular interest are candidates whose research interests span one or more of the following areas: biomedical devices, systems biology, computational biology, imaging, medical robotics, including surgical robots, and neurosciences.
The Department of Bioengineering at UTD currently offers the BS, MS and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering. The MS and PhD degree programs are offered jointly with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and the University of Texas at Arlington. The close proximity to the Medical School offers outstanding opportunities for collaborative research.
In addition to Bioengineering, the Erik Johnson School is home to the Departments of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Material Science & Engineering and has interdisciplinary programs in Computer Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, Software Engineering, and Systems Engineering.
The University of Texas at Dallas is situated in Richardson, one of the most attractive suburbs of the Dallas metropolitan area with several hundred high-tech companies within a few miles of the campus, including Texas Instruments, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Lennox, Rockwell-Collins, Nortel Networks, Alcatel, Ericsson, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, Fujitsu, Cisco Systems, EDS, Zyvex, and Intervoice. Opportunities for joint university-industry research projects are excellent. The Erik Jonsson School is experiencing a very rapid growth as part of a $300 million program of funding from public and private sources. As a result, the school is expanding its existing programs, establishing new programs, and recruiting outstanding faculty. In addition to people and programs, a $100 million state-of-the art building for interdisciplinary research in engineering and science was inaugurated in 2007.
