The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), in the College of Engineering at UC Davis, invites candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Nuclear Medical Imaging Science and Engineering faculty position.
Applications are encouraged from candidates with a strong background and experience in nuclear medical imaging science, including radiation detection, gamma ray detectors, fast electronics, imaging system engineering, computational aspects of imaging, with the potential for the application and dissemination of these technologies and methods to address important questions in biomedical imaging science or clinical diagnostics and therapy.
As one of the country’s leading R1 universities, UC Davis seeks candidates with exceptional potential for and record of research, teaching, and inclusive excellence. In addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of members from historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities in higher education. Applicants’ track record of engagement and activity related to diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion as well as their plans for future engagement will be a significant part of the overall evaluation of the candidate’s qualifications for a faculty appointment.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering consists of the Department Chair, 1-2 Vice-Chairs, 36 ladder rank faculty (including WOS), approximately 115-120 other academic employees of varying titles, and 24 administrative and technical staff. The Department has ~550 undergraduate students enrolled, which have ABET accreditation status. The Department houses one graduate group with approximately 120 graduate students who can obtain a MS and/or PhD degree, as well as an integrated BS/MS program. The Department is responsible for oversight of CMGI research center and the new TEAM facilities and development activities. The current budget research funding level is in excess of $77 million (with an expenditure rate of about $19.7M). Biomedical Engineering has significant federal research funding (NIH, NSF, DOD, DOE) within the College of Engineering. The Department occupies 40,000 square feet of departmentally assigned space within a Garamendi Facility and 3 other buildings on campus.
The Department has 33 faculty members and is ranked 7th in the nation and 2nd in California in annual research expenditures (NSF rankings). The Department has existing strengths in the areas of tissue eng...ineering, cellular and molecular engineering, biomechanics, biomedical imaging, micro/nano systems, therapeutics, and computational/systems biology.
