Heal the sick, advance the science, share the knowledge.
The Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering is seeking an innovative investigator who will bring novel approaches to studying cellular physiology and engineering. The successful candidate is expected to establish a collaborative and internationally recognized research program in the broad areas of cellular physiology and engineering. Alignment with existing strengths of the Department in enteric neuroscience, central and peripheral neural regeneration, or cardiopulmonary physiology is preferred, but all relevant areas of basic and translational research in cellular physiology and cellular engineering will be considered. The successful candidate is expected to establish a research program that emphasizes trans-disciplinary collaboration between scientists, clinician investigators and clinicians in the Department as well as in relevant clinical and basic science departments and centers from across the institution.
Credentials of a successful candidate will include a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D., or Sc.D., or equivalent), an established record of sustained extramural research funding, evidence of leadership skills and multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations.
Applicants developing and employing novel approaches, including organoids, microphysiological systems and cellular engineering will be prioritized.
