Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) Faculty Positions - Department of Biomedical Engineering
Case Western Reserve University
Cleveland, OH, USA
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University is pleased to invite applications for two non-tenure track Assistant Professor positions in biomedical engineering.
Non-Tenure-Track faculty teaching position in Senior Design and Core Lab Experiences: We are seeking applicants dedicated to curriculum development and teaching in several undergraduate foundational courses. Typical courses include (1) a SAGES course that introduces the concept of BioDesign to first semester engineering freshmen, (2) our first year “Introduction to Biomedical Engineering” course, (3) our two-course senior design sequence, and (4) teaching and supervising the laboratory components of BME undergraduate core courses (Biomedical Signals and Systems; Modeling of Biomedical Systems). Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or related field and to have at least two years of experience in teaching in similar undergraduate engineering courses.
Non-Tenure-Track faculty teaching position in Medical Imaging and Signal Processing: We are seeking applicants dedicated to teaching in the areas of medical imaging and signal processing. Typical courses include (1) an undergraduate course on the fundamentals of medical imaging, (2) an undergraduate course and a graduate core course focused on signal processing, and (3) an undergraduate course focused on modeling and simulation. In addition, this individual will be expected to develop or participate in the development of a new course focused on optimization and machine learning, and to assist in the advising of BME undergraduate students. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or related field, and to have at least two years of teaching experience in relevant (e.g., engineering, mathematics, physics) undergraduate courses.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement on teaching experiences and philosophy, and the names and contact information of at least four professional referees. Please send these documents electronically in one PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
Founded in 1826, Case Western Reserve University is a private research university located in Cleveland, Ohio. The site of the famous Michelson-Morley interferometer experiment, the university is associated with 16 Nobel laureates. The Case School of Engineering actively promotes interdisciplinary research collaboration through university-level institutes primarily focused on materials, health care, and energy.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering, which is jointly housed in the School of Medicine and in the Case School of Engineering, is one of the pioneering BME programs in the country (founded 1968), and is home to 56 Primary faculty members, over 180 graduate students and approximately 500 undergraduate students. Its faculty are international research leaders in biomaterials and nanomedicine, imaging, neural engineering, and computational imaging and personalized diagnostics. The BME department is also home to the endowed Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership that promotes translational research and supports collaborative translational research projects to improve patient care and accelerate the delivery of healthcare technology from academia to the marketplace. The department strives to advance human health through education and research at the intersection of medicine and engineering and recently started the Robert and Brenda Aiken Strategic Initiative and established an alliance with the Biomedical Engineering department in the Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Case Western Reserve University provides reasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities.

Case Western Reserve University is the largest private research university in Ohio, with broadly based strengths in:
medicine, nursing, and dentistry;
humanities and social sciences;
mathematics and natural sciences;
CWRU is committed to achieving excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship.
CWRU was established in 1967 by the federation of Western Reserve University and Case Institute of Technology, which trace their origins to 1826 and 1880, respectively.
The University's 128-acre campus is the heart of Cleveland's University Circle -- the region's cultural hub, home of more than 50 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions. University students and faculty participate in joint programs of teaching and research with several of their University Circle neighbors, including the Cleveland Institute of Art, University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Play House, and the Cleveland Orchestra.
The academic programs of Case Western Reserve University are administered through its schools and colleges: -- the College of Arts and Sciences, Case School of Engineering , Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, School of Dentistry, School of Graduate Studies, School of Law, Weatherhead School of Management, School of Medicine, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
CWRU ranks 12th among the nation's private research universities in federal awards to support research and development. It received more than $200 million in 1998-99 from government, industry, and private sources for research and sponsored projects. These funds support approximately 2,000 research and training projects.
University faculty work through one of the nearly 100 designated research centers and laboratories, many of which are interdisciplinary in nature, in addition to traditional departmental facilities.
Research strengths of the University include biomedicine (including cancer, neurobiology, pulmonary functions, genetics, biomedical engineering); materials (ceramics and composites, polymers, diamond, designed surfaces); sensors (industrial and medical); and interdisciplinary studies (aging, management of non-profit organizations, international health, intelligent systems, regional economics, technology management, and urban poverty).
CWRU enrolls 9,600 students -- about a third in undergraduate programs, and the balance in graduate and professional programs. Approximately two-thirds of all students attend full-time. Students come to CWRU from 50 states, the District of Columbia, and nearly 100 countries. About 70 percent of freshmen are in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating classes; nearly 90 percent are in the top 20 percent.
