Biomedical Engineering Faculty Positions at Penn State


Cancer Research – Open Rank Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering

Job Number: 90091

Date Announced: 08/15/2019

Closing Date: Open Until Filled

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University (www.bme.psu.edu) invites applications from rising stars or established investigators working to address modern challenges in cancer research. We are seeking Assistant, Associate, or Professor-rank Applicants. The department’s funding portfolio in cancer-related studies has recently sky-rocketed and the number of faculty members has more than doubled. This growth has created an exciting cluster of faculty working at the interface of cancer research and biomedical engineering. Excellent laboratory space isavailable in our new building as part of our continued expansion, along with world-class computing resources (ics.psu.edu), shared facilities from the Huck Institutes of Life Sciences (www.huck.psu.edu) and Materials Research Institute (mri.psu.edu), along with highly competitive start-up packages. This joint position is co-sponsored by the Penn State Cancer Institute (cancer.psu.edu/) and the Center for Structural Oncology at the Huck Institutes. We are particularly interested in candidates with an accomplished track record in mechanistic- and/or technology-based cancer studies using state-of-the-art approaches or tools including: cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM); light-sheetimaging, or super-resolution microscopy; cellular and molecular engineering of immunotherapies; microbiome studies related to cancer development or therapeutic interventions. An established funding record in cancer research is strongly preferred.

The University Park/State College area is a diverse and inclusive community rich in family-oriented activities. Inspiring Change. Impacting Tomorrow.

To Apply: Applicants should have a doctoral degree in BME or related field(s). Candidates also would be expected to secure (or for Associate and Full Professor ranks, have an outstanding track record of) extramural funding, be effective educators in the application of engineering to the medical and life sciences at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate in service to further the missions of the department, college, and University. For applications to be fully considered, applicants are required to apply to job 90091 at psu.jobs/job/90091. In one PDF file, please submit a cover letter, current contact information, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching objectives, five representative research publication citations with respective online hyperlinks, and the names and contact information of four or five references. Applications will be reviewed until October 1, 2019, and will be considered until the positions are filled. Screening of applicants will begin on October 14, 2019, and interviews will commence in November 2019. Salary is negotiable and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Inquiries should be directed to Search Committee Chair, Dr. Deb Kelly, Huck Chair Professor of Biomedical Engineering, via email (bme-cancer-search@gmail.com).

Cell Therapies and Biomanufacturing – Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering

Job Number: 90146

Date Announced: 08/19/2019

Closing Date: Open Until Filled

The Department of Biomedical Engineering and Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences at the Pennsylvania State University invites highly qualified applications for a tenure line faculty position at the Associate or Full Professor level. Exceptional Assistant Professor candidates will be considered as well. The department seeks candidates with a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering or a related field with an excellent track record and demonstrated ability to lead a world-class research program in the areas of engineered biologics, immunotherapies (such as CAR-T cells, and CAR-NK cells), stem cell therapies or other biomanufactured cell-based therapeutics. An ideal candidate should have a strong engineering background who is either currently conducting disease-focused research developing cell therapies and/or cell biomanufacturing approaches (including omics-based engineering to approaches to cell-based products), or is currently working in large-scale mammalian cell culture technologies applied to cell-based products. The potential to produce quality outcomes that affect the cost, safety, availability, and advance engineered biotherapies targeting a health-related problem is a priority. Candidates with an interest and ability to take a leadership role in large collaborative research efforts and engage with university and industrial partners is a plus. This candidate will have access to the CSL-Behring Fermentation Facility established at PSU via a growing university-industry partnership, and will help develop and potentially lead a state-of-theart, industrial scale mammalian cell production facility.

The University Park/State College area is a diverse and inclusive community rich in family-oriented activities. Inspiring Change. Impacting Tomorrow.
