  • Tenure stream positions in Bioengineering at the University ofPittsburgh

    The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh is
    pleased to announce multiple tenure-stream positions. The department is
    located directly across from and interacts closely with the University
    of Pittsburgh Medical Center, rated nationally in the top 10 in NIH
    funding, including 8 Bioengineering Research Grants awarded to
    Bioengineering faculty in 2001 alone. Currently our very active
    educational program offers BS, MS, PhD, and MD/PhD degrees and several
    certificate programs. Recent research additions to the department
    include an endowment for the McGinnis Chair in Bioengineering and the
    development of the Swanson Center for Product Innovation funded in part
    by the Keck Foundation. In addition, the newly formed McGowan Institute
    for Regenerative Medicine ( offers many research
    opportunities in the areas of tissue/organ engineering. Bioengineering
    faculty Further information about our faculty, educational and research
    programs can be found at

    We are seeking individuals to enhance our core departmental faculty.
    Expertise areas of particular interest include:

    Cellular biomechanics - Areas of interest include mechanical behavior of
    intact cells, cell/extracellular matrix interactions,
    mechanotransduction, and related areas. It is anticipated that this
    individual would link with the extensive ongoing tissue and organ level
    biomechanics in the cardiovascular and orthopedic areas, which also
    include significant efforts in tissue engineering.

    BioMEMS - Areas of interest include biological applications of
    nanomechanics, biosensors, and neurological stimulation and control.

    Biotechnology - Areas of interest include stem cell isolation and
    characterization, gene or drug delivery, and related biotechnology

    Appointments will be made at a level commensurate with the
    qualifications of the candidate, i.e., at the assistant, associate, or
    full professorial level. Electronic applications are strongly
    encouraged. A complete dossier, including CV, personal statement, and
    names of at least three references should be sent to:

    Dr. Michael S. Sacks
    Chair, Search Committee
    Department of Bioengineering
    Room 749 Benedum Hall, 3700 O'Hara St.
