Faculty Position in Medical Devices

The Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College invites applications for a faculty position in medical devices, with appointment at the Assistant Professor level.

The successful candidate will develop an internationally recognized research program supported with external funding, and will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in relevant areas of engineering. Applicants with expertise in the broad area of biomedical devices, including but not limited to biosensors, devices and systems for molecular targeting and biomarker discovery, brain-device interfaces, medical robotics, lab-on-chip, surgical device design, BioMEMS/nanotechnologies and machine learning for precision health, will be considered, with a priority on those working at the interface of engineering innovations and clinical translation. Facilities available for dedicated or collaborative use exist at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Geisel School of Medicine, including advanced imaging facilities, genetic engineering resources, animal and human translational capabilities, surgical research laboratories, and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center resources. The Thayer School values inter-disciplinary excellence, and prides itself on training broadly versed yet deeply knowledgeable engineers prepared to address tomorrow’s challenges. Using an integrated, non-departmental structure, we offer an ABET-accredited B.E. degree, as well as A.B., M.E.M., M. Eng., M.S., Ph.D. and dual track M.D./Ph.D. degrees. The Thayer School of Engineering has a long history of educational leadership, and is well recognized internationally for the innovations in engineering education. Thayer developed the nation’s first Ph.D. Innovation degree program emphasizing engineering and entrepreneurship, and the faculty has one of the highest rates of new venture start up in the U.S. The school received the 2014 Gordon Prize from the National Academic of Engineering for its collective programs that teach engineering entrepreneurship. The Thayer School of Engineering is currently going through a significant expansion of faculty and programs, and this position is anticipated to be one of several at the interface between Engineering and Medicine. A Ph.D. in engineering or related sciences is required.
