    *Announcing New Faculty Positions in the University of North Carolina -
    North Carolina State University Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering*

    The Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of
    North Carolina and North Carolina State University is seeking highly
    qualified candidates at all levels for tenure-track faculty positions.
    Applicants are expected to have earned doctoral degrees in biomedical
    engineering or related sciences. Post-doctoral research and teaching
    experience are highly desirable. Successful candidates will be expected
    to develop self-sustaining, extramurally funded, internationally
    acclaimed research programs and demonstrate a clear commitment to both
    our undergraduate and graduate academic programs. Areas of particular
    interest are tissue engineering, bionanotechnology, biomedical imaging,
    biomechanics, bioelectronics, bioMEMS, biorobotics, computational
    neuroscience, and medical devices.

    Our biomedical engineering graduate program has a 38-year history at UNC
    Chapel Hill. In 2003, our graduate program was expanded to include NC
    State and the Joint Department was created. The department offers an
    ABET-accredited bachelors degree at NC State and supports a biomedical
    engineering emphasis in UNCís applied-science bachelorís degree. A new
    state-of-the-art building will soon be under construction on the
    Centennial Campus at NC State that will house biomedical and mechanical
    engineering. At UNC, the department is scheduled to move into renovated
    space in Spring 2008. Research strengths include materials science,
    tissue engineering, bioinformatics, cell and molecular biology, bioMEMS,
    microfluidics, biomedical instrumentation, neurosciences, biomedical
    imaging, cardiovascular applications, medical textiles, and
    mechanobiology. Collaborations between the NC State and UNC Chapel Hill
    campuses foster a highly collegial atmosphere that results in extremely
    successful multidisciplinary research projects. Entrepreneurial activity
    and the commercialization of intellectual property by our faculty are
    encouraged and are a positive factor in performance evaluations. For
    more information see our website:

    The Research Triangle area rates among the nationís top locations for
    fostering new start-up companies. Several incubators for start-ups are
    located near or on each campus. Central North Carolina is a very
    attractive place to live Ė mild winters, a multitude of arts and
    cultural programs, a wide variety of dining and entertainment options,
    and nearby ocean beaches and mountain winter skiing and summer hiking
