The University of California, Riverside's (UCR) Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) currently has 129 faculty members, more than 2,500 undergraduates, 830 graduate students, more than $39 million in annual research expenditures, and is home to five departments, two college wide Interdepartmental programs and 10 research centers.
BCOE invites applicants for tenure-track faculty positions who will complement the highly motivated and entrepreneurial spirit of the College faculty, and who will contribute meaningfully to the success of future teaching, research, and service accomplishments. Incumbents are expected to initiate and sustain strong sponsored research and graduate training programs. Specific areas of interest can be found on the employment section of each department's website at http://www.engr.ucr.edu/ .
The Bioengineering department is currently home to 17 core faculty members. Our core faculty includes 5 AIMBE fellows, 3 AAAS fellows, 1 BMES fellow, 1 IEEE fellow, 1 SPIE fellow and 1 ISMRM fellow. Our research focuses on 5 cutting-edge and research areas: biomaterials/regenerative medicine, biomedical imaging, computational bioengineering, molecular and cellular bioengineering, and neuroengineering. Our interdisciplinary research and educational training effort extends through the Bioengineering Interdepartmental Graduate Program (BIG), which encompasses 50 additional UCR faculty members. The department offers BS, BS/MS, MS, and PhD degrees, with a current enrollment of approximately 75 graduate and 350 undergraduate students. Our graduate program is a gender-balanced blend of US and international students, with two-thirds of the PhD students being domestic, and of those, one-fourth are underrepresented minorities. The BS degree program in Bioengineering is fully accredited by ABET since 2011. Opportunities for collaboration exist through multiple college-level and campus-wide initiatives, including the School of Medicine, the College of Natural Sciences, Center for glial neuronal interactions, Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine, Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering, High-Performance Computing Center, Center for Research in Intelligent Systems, Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, Interdisciplinary Center for Quantitative Modeling in Biology, Stem Cell Center, and Center for Advanced Neuroimaging.
Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for, developing a vibrant externally-funded research program and developing a portfolio of high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. UC faculty will be expected to maintain an active research agenda and record of publications; teach a regular course load at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and to participate in service activities at department, college campus, and professional levels. They should also demonstrate clear potential for complementing and/or synergistically leveraging existing research activities within the department, college and campus.
Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
Appointments are expected to begin July 1, 2019. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience.
