Department of Bioengineering

The George Mason University Department of Bioengineering, within the College of Engineering and Computing, invites applications for one or more renewable-term, non-tenure-track positions at the ranks of Assistant, Associate, Professor, and Instructor, beginning Fall 2022.

George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason's academic and culturally inclusive environment.

Responsibilities:


Responsibilities include teaching core undergraduate and graduate courses in bioengineering, developing electives in accordance with their area of expertise, advising students and mentoring senior design teams, and service duties associated with the department's degree programs.

Required Qualifications:


Applicants for the position of Assistant/Associate or Professor must have received a PhD in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related field by the start date of the position. Applicants who have received a MS in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related field by the start date of the position will be considered for Instructor positions. Applicants should possess a strong commitment to education, demonstrated excellence in teaching, and possess strong oral and written communication skills. Senior applicants with at least 5 years of teaching experience at the BS and/or MS levels, significant accomplishments in curriculum development, and experience and success in student outreach may be considered for a higher rank.

Preferred Qualifications:


Applicants in all areas of bioengineering/biomedical engineering will be given serious consideration. The candidate should have experience on one or more of our research pillars: biomedical imaging and devices, computational biomedicine, biomaterials and nanomedicine, and neurotechnology and computational neuroscience. We are particularly interested in candidates in the areas of biomechanics, biomaterials, biomanufacturing, computational biomedicine, physiological modelling, bioinstrumentation, electronics, and imaging. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience and a record of peer-reviewed publications. Administrative and/or managerial experience is a plus. The department and the College place a high value on engaging students from traditionally underrepresented groups, and candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.



About the Department:


Mason's bioengineering department, https://bioengineering.gmu.edu, has 13 faculty members whose research can be divided into four pillars: biomedical imaging and devices, computational biomedicine, biomaterials and nanomedicine, and neurotechnology and computational neuroscience. Newly constructed research facilities in these focus areas opened in 2018. Bioengineering faculty research is funded by a number of federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. These agencies and other sources bring the department's active research funding total to more than $20 million. Undergraduate enrollment in the thriving ABET-accredited undergraduate program totals more than 210 students. A relatively new, rapidly growing PhD program and a new master's program (launched in 2018) complete the academic offerings. The department has several growing partnerships with regional centers such as the Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH https://www.inova.org/inova-center-for-personalized-health), which includes the Center for Surgery and Bioengineering Research, and the Genomics and Bioinformatics Research Institute.
