The Department of NanoEngineering (http://nanoengineering.ucsd.edu), which combines Materials and Chemical Engineering around Nanotechnologies for the Jacobs School of Engineering, invites applications for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. The NanoEngineering Department is within Jacobs School of Engineering and is committed to building an excellent, diverse and inclusive faculty, staff, and student body (http://www.jacobsschool.ucsd.edu/diversity). Candidates are expected to carry out forefront research and teach classes related to NanoEngineering in the following technical field: Bionanotechnology and Nanomedicine. The candidates are expected to have a PhD in the fields of Biomedical, Chemical, Materials, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Biophysics, or similar related fields, to support the growth of the bionanotechnology focus of the department. Exceptional candidates in all other areas will be given serious consideration. A successful candidate may have close ties with the Institute of Engineering in Medicine, Moores Cancer Center, or the BRAIN Initiative at UCSD, enhancing cross-campus collaborations, while spearheading a strong independent research program in bionanotechnologies related to healthcare sector. The research areas of primary interest to the department are: nanotechnology-enabled drug delivery, biomanufacturing, bioimaging, biosensing, biocatalysis, and bio-inspired self assemblies and scaffolds, as well as DNA nanotechnology, nanobiomachines, nanotoxicity, single-molecule nanobioscience, and other cutting-edge bionanotechnology areas. A demonstrated track record of high quality publications and innovations is required. UC San Diego strives to maintain a climate of fairness, cooperation and professionalism that enables us to attract a more diverse cross section of faculty in terms of gender, ethnicity, and nationality, and candidates who have a demonstrated track record of enhancing diversity are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates with experience with or willingness to engage in activities that contribute to diversity and inclusion are especially encouraged to apply.
