Biomedical Engineering: Chaired Professorship

Dartmouth Engineering, in partnership with the Dartmouth Cancer Center, seeks to fill a distinguished endowed-chair professorship (at full professor rank) in biomedical engineering, with a focus on cancer-related research. An outstanding candidate is sought with interests which include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence/big data, wearable and/or nanosensor technologies, digital health, digital therapeutics, and/or medical imaging/physics. Candidates whose research might contribute to the Dartmouth Cancer Center precision prevention initiative are of particular interest.
