Biomedical Engineering as well as a newly-formed program for a
Professional Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering. The new faculty
member will be encouraged to participate in multi-disciplinary
educational programs and to collaborate with researchers from the
University of Kentucky Medical Center and the College of Engineering,
which are in close proximity to the Center for BME. Large
multi-disciplinary research groups in spinal cord and head injury, bone
repair and regeneration, and sensor technology will provide unique
opportunities for the successful applicant.

The successful applicant will have a doctoral degree in Biomedical
Engineering or a related discipline and will be expected to teach
