Description

The Department of Bioengineeringand the Division of Regenerative Medicine at the University of California, San Diego are dedicated to bringing the advancement of scientific research in stem cells and regenerative medicine to the forefront. We invite applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure-track faculty position (Assistant Professor) jointly appointed across the Departments of Bioengineering and Medicine. This initiative in regenerative medicine seeks to find a candidate who will bring novel approaches and ideas to this cutting-edge field.

The Department of Bioengineering, in the Jacobs School of Engineering and the Division of Regenerative Medicine, in the School of Medicine, are committed to building an excellent, diverse and inclusive faculty, staff and student body. Candidates with experience with or willingness to engage in activities that contribute to diversity and inclusion are especially encouraged to apply. The UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering is a premier research school set apart by its entrepreneurial culture; education programs that integrate fundamentals with real-world applications; and enthusiastic collaborations across disciplines and industry to solve the toughest problems facing society. The Division of Regenerative Medicine in the School of Medicine, in cooperation with the Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center and the Moores Cancer Center, is dedicated to making advances in stem cell research.

A PhD (or advancement to candidacy) in Biomedical Engineering, Cell Biology, Regenerative Medicine, or related fields is required for this position. Preferred candidates should have a track record of publications in internationally recognized journals and sub-specialty in related fields and will have expertise in multiple areas related to stem cells and bioengineering in order to continue their investigation of the complex relationship between tissue/cells regeneration and biomaterial scaffolds.

We are expecting to recruit exceptional individuals to maintain preeminence in the development of tissue/cell regeneration and biomaterial scaffolding, methods, technologies and applications with:

  • Expertise and a deep background in genomic, molecular, cellular organismal data sciences and/or integrative analysis and design, in areas pertinent to regenerative medicine
  • A strong research interest in bringing biomaterials and learning approaches to human diseases and innovative solutions to biomedical applications; and
  • The ability to develop synergistic interactions with researchers in the School of Medicine, Jacobs School of Engineering, Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center, Moores Cancer Center and related UC San Diego departments and/or neighboring institutions.

The new faculty member will be expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality federally funded research that focuses on tissue engineering, biomaterials and regenerative medicine. The new faculty member will also be expected to participate in university service, and to teach courses in UC San Diego’s Bioengineering, Bioengineering/Biotechnology, Bioengineering/BioSystems undergraduate degree majors and graduate degree programs and in Regenerative Medicine or Stem Cell Biology undergraduate degree majors and graduate degree programs.

The Department of Bioengineering and the Division of Regenerative Medicine enjoy close collaboration with the School of Medicine, the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the Divisions of Biological and Physical Sciences, Scripps Institution of Oceanography and all of the departments within the Jacobs School of Engineering.

Salary is based on published UC San Diego pay scales and competitive market conditions.
