in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science

The School of Biomedical Engineering, Science, and Health Systems at Drexel University invites nominations and applications for a number of tenure track positions in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science at all professorial ranks. Successful candidates are expected to hold excellent research and academic credentials in Biomedical Engineering and Sciences. They must be prepared to develop interdisciplinary research at the forefront of their disciplines and lead translational research programs. Translational research is a priority of the School's faculty and students, therefore a commitment to moving discoveries to healthcare practice is desirable. All candidates should also be willing to participate in teaching and development of interdisciplinary curricula, as well as supervise student research and design projects, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Candidates with a track record of externally funded research and degrees in Biomedical Engineering are especially encouraged to apply. Senior faculty are expected to provide evidence of outstanding accomplishment in funded scientific research and should posses qualities of leadership and creativity confirmed through formal credentials and national and international recognition. Entry level faculty who demonstrate a track record of archival publications and potential for competitive grantsmanship will be given preference.

We are particularly encouraging applications from qualified applicants with research accomplishments in (alphabetical order):

  • Biomaterials/Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Bioengineering
  • Biomedical-Instrumentation/Biosensors/Bioimaging
  • Bioinformatics and Systems Bioengineering
  • Orthopedic and Musculoskeletal Biomechanics
  • Neuroengineering and Computational Neuroscience

Drexel University is a private, urban university located in Center City Philadelphia and is recognized for its traditionally strong technological focus and career-integrated education. The School of Biomedical Engineering Science and Health Systems School is a nationally renowned center for biomedical engineering education and research founded in 1958 and reorganized in 1998. The School is a college-level free-standing interdisciplinary academic unit comprised of a multidisciplinary faculty. The School confers ABET accredited undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering and MS and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science. The present enrollment at the School exceeds 765 students, including 236 graduate students. The School's graduate program is one of the oldest in the country.

The academic thrust areas of the School are Tissue and Cellular Engineering, Bioinformatics and Neuroengineering. These focus areas are built on the historical strengths of the faculty in Biosensors, Biomedical Imaging, Biomechanics and Human Performance, enabled by our core competences in Biomedical Ultrasound, Biomedical Optics and Bionanotechnology. The School developed outstanding collaborations and joint programs with many academic units of the university, in particular, College of Medicine, College of Engineering, and College of Arts and Sciences. The School's faculty have also forged extensive collaboration with regional universities, research institutes, hospitals and industries and are engaged in global academic and innovation partnerships in China, Europe, Israel and Turkey.

The School is the beneficiary of the Calhoun Endowment, and is the recipient of Wallace H. Coulter Translational Research Partnership Endowment awarded in 2011. The Coulter Translational Partnership is a nationally recognized best practice of 16 universities committed to commercialize academic innovation.

To apply go to All applications should include a cover letter, complete CV, research and teaching statements and the names and addresses of at least three references. Copies of key publications may also be submitted. The review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Faculty rank and salary will commensurate with the candidate's qualifications. For additional information about faculty benefits and resources visit:
