University of Arizona — Faculty, Cancer Bioengineering

Cancer Bioengineering Faculty, University of Arizona (multiple positions)

With strong support from the State of Arizona, the College of Engineering, College of Medicine, and the University of Arizona Cancer Center have partnered to create a program in Cancer Bioengineering. To achieve that goal, the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine in the College of Medicine, in collaboration with the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Department of Biomedical Engineering, invite applications for four tenure-track positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with an anticipated start date of January 2024. We are specifically interested in the areas of (1) cellular and biomolecular engineering; (2) tissue bioengineering; (3) studying the effects of tumor microenvironment, including cancer mechanobiology; and (5) imaging and computational approaches to cancer modelling. We seek candidates with an entrepreneurial spirit who aim to discover novel inventions that lead to the development of new companies or industry partnerships. We will provide generous startup packages commensurate with experience.

Duties and Responsibilities

Successful candidates will be expected to establish a strong research program, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and contribute to mentoring students, including those from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. They will also be expected to participate in outreach, partner with colleagues across departments and colleges, and nurture an environment of collaboration. Additionally, faculty members help to develop innovative approaches to enhancing student engagement, increasing diversity, and expanding collaborations with community and business partners.

Successful Assistant Professor applicants will have a strong potential for establishing an independent research program and extramural funding. Associate Professor applicants should have an established track record of laboratory research, publication, and grant funding. All candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to serving a diverse student body at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and the positions will remain open until filled.
