Position description

Building upon its commitment to foster an inclusive environment and promote the success of underrepresented students, the Department of Bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions. Applications will be considered at all levels, with a preference for appointments at the Assistant Professor level.
Applicants for the positions must have a demonstrated record of excellence in, or show exceptional promise for, high-quality research, teaching, and professional development. In addition, applicants must have a demonstrated record of interest in, and commitment to, the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations. The successful candidate will be expected to advance their active mentoring activities and participate in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (such as our Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity, our Women in Engineering program, and our student organizations listed at https://samueli.ucla.edu/equity-diversity-and-inclusion/). Teaching and service expectations will not exceed those of other faculty positions.

The Department of Bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is conducting a search for exceptional faculty candidates in the broad areas of bioengineering, including, but not limited to: immunoengineering, neuroengineering, and artificial intelligence in biomedical imaging. With the close collaboration with the David Geffen School of Medicine and many other disciplines on campus, there are tremendous opportunities to develop interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative technologies to address medical needs.

Candidates whose technical interests complement and augment the Department’s existing strengths and are well positioned to develop collaborations as part of multidisciplinary research teams are of particular interest. Our hiring priority is focused on the frontiers of Bioengineering research, where a candidate’s impact, originality, and promise for developing and maintaining a strong, extramurally supported research program has been demonstrated. We are interested in outstanding candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship and to a diverse campus climate.

These positions require a Ph.D. or equivalent in bioengineering or a closely related discipline at date of hire.
