Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences Tenure Track Faculty

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


University of California, San Francisco

The Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences in the Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine at the University of California San Francisco, seeks to hire a tenure track faculty member to mount an exciting research program and to teach graduate, professional, and postdoctoral students.

The unique opportunities for interactions between basic and clinical scientists at UCSF have enabled the development of new medical treatment strategies, including novel methods for delivering and evaluating cell and drug-based therapies. We seek candidates who will advance therapeutic bioengineering at UCSF in the following forward-looking research areas, including but not limited to neural engineering and/or neural interfaces; immune-engineering; micro/nanosystems for diagnostic or therapeutic applications, design of biological activity sensors or molecular probes for normal and abnormal physiology, fabrication of tissue replacements and drug delivery devices, and computational modeling of disease processes.

Faculty participate in the Joint UCSF/UCB Graduate Group in Bioengineering (JGGB), the Graduate Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacogenomics (PSPG), the Biophysics and Biomedical Informatics Graduate Programs, the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) and various other campus wide programs. Applicants should have a doctoral degree, or a PhD in process, or equivalent in biological, engineering or physical sciences, with a major focus on applications to biomedical problems. Priority will be given to an appointment at the Assistant Professor level, however, the selected candidates rank will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.

UC San Francisco strongly encourages applications from those candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
