|The University of Wisconsin, Department of Biomedical Engineering, is seeking faculty members with research interests in one of the following areas:
Neuroengineering: neural instrumentation, prostheses and interfaces (including BioMEMS and devices), neural imaging, optogenetics, neural repair and regeneration (including stem cell therapies), neural signal processing, computational neurosciences, and clinical neuroengineering. A faculty member recruited in this specialty area will have the opportunity to closely collaborate with clinical and research faculty in neurosurgery.
Systems Biology: regulatory networks, multiscale modeling, stochastic modeling, transcription and signaling in single cells, proteomics/phosphoproteomics.
Biophotonics: optical microscopy, tissue optics, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustic tomography, microendoscopy, image informatics and biomedical applications of these techniques and modalities.
Research focused on pathological conditions (e.g. cancer) is of strong interest. Candidates will be expected to develop an innovative research program, advise graduate students and post-graduate research, and develop and maintain extramural funding for this research program; teach undergraduate and graduate courses and develop new courses; participate in outreach and service to industry and government; and participate in faculty governance activities in department, college, and/or university.
