    Faculty Member in Neural Engineering

    The Department of Biomedical Engineering

    Newark College of Engineering

    New Jersey Institute of Technology

    The Department of Biomedical Engineering is seeking an outstanding scholar
    for a new faculty position in neural engineering at the assistant/associate
    professor level depending upon the level of past accomplishment. The
    Department has identified neural engineering as a major growth area and
    seeks candidates with the ability to develop independent research programs
    supported by external funding. This new faculty member will be able to
    build upon existing departmental strength in neuromuscular engineering,
    neural/vision engineering, neural plasticity and tissue engineering.
    Qualifications for this position include an earned doctorate in biomedical
    engineering or related field and the abilities to develop and conduct
    significant neural engineering research and to teach at both the
    undergraduate and graduate levels. All areas of neural engineering
    including, but not limited to, computational modeling, signal processing,
    nerve regeneration, and neural repair will be considered.

    The Department of Biomedical Engineering has 9 tenure track faculty, two
    full-time research professors and two full-time instructional faculty.
    Student enrollment includes 250 undergraduates, 80 M.S. students and 14
    Ph.D. students. The department offers an excellent research environment
    including a new building containing the departmental core offices, teaching
    studios and 10 faculty research laboratories. A second nearby facility
    contains the department's suite of wet laboratories. NJIT is one of three
    public research universities in New Jersey and is located in the University
    Heights section of Newark along with the flagship campus of the University
    of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Rutgers University-Newark
    campus. Together, these three adjacent universities exceed $100 million in
    annual external research.

    Neural engineering activities in the department are enhanced through
    collaboration with the Rutgers Center for Molecular and Behavioral
    Neuroscience, and the UMDNJ departments of Neuroscience, Neurosurgery,
    Rehabilitation Medicine and Neurology. A 3T fMRI system is available at
    UMDNJ for research. Within several miles are two additional research
    facilities. The East Orange VA Medical Center houses a major neuroscience
    research center and the Kessler Rehabilitation Institute houses the Kessler
    Medical Research and Education Corporation, a non-profit research facility
    that includes rehabilitation engineering, neuroscience and cognitive science
    research. Opportunities also exist for collaboration with local industries,
    which include many of the nation's largest biomedical and pharmaceutical
    firms and dozens of start-up companies. In addition, the New Jersey
    Commission on Spinal Cord Research and the newly formed New Jersey
    Commission on Brain Injury Research are potential sources of grant

    The university reserves the right to substitute equiv. education and/or
    experience at its discretion. NJIT is an equal opportunity, affirmative
    action, equal access employer and especially encourages applications from
    minorities, women and persons with disabilities.

    Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Application
    packages must include: i) a detailed vitae, ii) 5 letters of recommendation,
    iii) statement of academic and research vision. Please send applications
    and nominations to: New Jersey Institute of Technology, Personnel Position #
