Position Description
Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Bioengineering. The Department of Bioengineering in the J. B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville (UofL) was founded in 2004 and has quickly become a leader in education and translational research. In 2010, our bioengineering program achieved dual-level accreditation by the ABET EAC for the integrated Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degrees. In 2011, the UofL Department of Bioengineering received the Coulter Translational Partnership Award from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation to promote translational research between bioengineers and clinicians.

UofL is currently ranked as a Carnegie Research Intensive institution that has gained international recognition in recent years for its pioneering research in the areas of BioMEMS/NEMS (new top-10 cleanroom in the US), Cardiovascular Devices (1st Totally Implantable Artificial Heart Procedure), Cancer Therapy ($80M Brown Cancer Center), Orthopedics (1st hand transplant in U.S.), Neurosurgery and Neuroscience (1st to establish voluntary movement in a paraplegic patient), and Stem Cell Biology (Institute for Cellular Therapeutics).

The bioengineering effort is a fast growing program with eight full-time faculty conducting bioengineering research currently supported by over $13M in extramural funding. A primary mission of the Bioengineering Department is to develop a top research program for the discovery and commercialization of technologies that will translate into effective therapies, restore patient quality of life, and stimulate economic development.

The Bioengineering Department is recruiting outstanding candidates at the rank of assistant or associate professor with expertise in the areas of bioelectronics, biomaterials, bioimaging, medical/dental device manufacturing, bioinformatics, biomechanics, biomedical devices, bioMEMS, bionanotechnology, biosignal processing, molecular and tissue engineering, and rehabilitation.
