  • Tenure-track faculty position in Biomedical Engineering at theUniversity of Southern California

    The Department of Biomedical Engineering at USC invites applications
    for a tenure-track faculty position at all levels in the general area
    of neuroengineering.

    Successful applicants are expected to establish an independent
    research program of distinction, as well as effective collaborations
    with other USC faculty in engineering and the life sciences.
    Particular areas of interest include: neural control of natural or
    prosthetic motor function, neural tissue engineering, biomaterials of
    neural-abiotic interfaces, molecular and cell biology of engineer-
    modified nervous systems, neuromorphic vision systems and neural
    coding, and the development of biomimetic hardware/software systems.
    The Department includes 12 primary and 55 affiliated faculty with
    research strengths in neuroengineering, computational bioengineering,
    device/diagnostic technologies, and bioimaging. The Department hosts
    4 national centers of funded research: the Biomimetic Microelectronic
    Systems Engineering Research Center (BMES-ERC), the Biomedical
    Simulations Resource, the Medical Ultrasonic Transducer Technology
    Research Center, and the Center for Neural Engineering. It is
    anticipated that the successful candidate would work in research
    areas related to the mission of the NSF-funded BMES-ERC. New faculty
    will also have the opportunity to work with the technology
    development staff of the Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical
    Engineering at USC, whose role is to translate research products into
    commercially viable technologies to improve human health and well-
    being. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and research/
    education statement along with suggested references by mail and/or e-
    mail to:

    Michael C.K. Khoo, Chair
    Department of Biomedical Engineering,
    DRB-140, University of Southern California,
    Los Angeles, CA 90089-1111

    Applicants are encouraged to visit the Department’s web site
    ( for details on current educational and research programs.
