FACULTY POSITIONS in The Harrington Department of Bioengineering, Arizona State University

Arizona State University, an emerging leader in biomedicine and bioengineering research and education, continues to significantly expand its Bioengineering faculty through the creation of the Harrington Department of Bioengineering and the Arizona Biodesign Institute. Tenure track, assistant/associate professor positions in Biomechanics, BioMEMS, Neuroprotheses, and Motor Learning/Control are available starting August 2004. Successful candidates are expected to lead the efforts in developing state-of-the-art facilities for research and working closely with faculty members in Bioengineering and other departments/colleges to achieve national and international prominence.

Required qualifications for all positions are: earned doctorate in bioengineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, or a closely related engineering or science field by date of appointment; research and teaching experience appropriate to rank; demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the Bioengineering curriculum; and record of scholarly publications and external funding appropriate to rank.

Desired qualifications are specific to the following positions:
Biomechanics - Broad range of experimental, computational and theoretical expertise, appropriate to rank, in one of the following: mechanical properties and dynamics of neuromuscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, digestive, or metabolic systems in either molecular/cellular or organ scale; soft tissue mechanics and injury; rehabilitation robotics/devices; or modeling and simulation of movement dynamics for rehabilitation applications.
BioMEMS - Expertise, appropriate to rank, in the design and microfabrication of microelectromechanical and/or microfluidic systems for applications to neural engineering (e.g. application of engineering principles and methods in basic and applied neuroscience, development of devices and technologies which interface with the nervous system, and technologies related to neurosurgery or neurology or neuroimaging), and/or for MEMS applications to molecular, cell or tissue engineering (e.g. molecular, cell, and tissue-based biohybrid devices, cell, and tissue engineered systems).
Motor Learning/Control - Experience, appropriate to rank, in: neurophysiology/neurobiology and neuroanatomy of motor control systems; experimental investigation of movement control with emphasis on manipulation tasks and motor learning and adaptation; sensorimotor integration and sensory feedback; neurological recording and neural signal decoding algorithms; and/or neuroprosthetic research and development.
Neuroprostheses - Expertise, appropriate to rank, in the development and testing of neuroprosthetic systems; design and fabrication of microdevices for neural interfaces and potential chronic implantation; biosensors and actuators for neural systems, and/or neurophysiological systems analysis /control. Background in the design and development of neural interface devices or systems.

Applications must be received by January 15, 2004; if not filled, the 1st and 15th of the month thereafter until searches are closed. Send 1) letter of interest indicating both rank and position(s) desired, e.g. Biomechanics, BioMEMS, Motor Learning/Control, Neuroprostheses applying for, 2) current curriculum vitae, 3) summary of past activity and future plan for research and teaching, and 4) names, postal and email addresses and telephone numbers of four references to: Chair of the Faculty Search Committee, Harrington Department of Bioengineering, PO Box 879709, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287-9709.
