The College of Engineering and Computing (http://www.cec.sc.edu) seeks to fill multiple tenure-track positions (at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor) in the area of biomedical engineering (http://biomed.engr.sc.edu/). These positions are associated with and are expected to support a NSF RII award building a statewide alliance focused on biofabrication (http://www.scepscoridea.org/epscor/2009NSFRII.html). Areas of research specialization include, but are not limited to: biofabrication, biomaterials, mechanotransduction, biomimetics, biofluid mechanics, and computational modeling. Faculty associated with the statewide biofabrication effort have significant opportunities and access to world class facilities and staff across the state with expertise in the clinical, engineering, physical, and computational sciences. Primary appointment will be in the Department of Chemical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering and will be affiliated with the Biomedical Engineering Program.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field and a record indicating exceptional potential for research in an area of biomedical engineering relevant to the statewide biofabrication effort. Postdoctoral research experience is beneficial but not required. The successful candidate will establish an interdisciplinary research program of national and international prominence and demonstrate dedication to graduate and undergraduate education. Applicants with appropriate experience and qualifications will be considered for an Endowed Chair in Advanced Tissue Biofabrication.

Applications should submit with their letter of application, a curriculum vitae, research and teaching plans, and contact information for at least three references. Applications should be submitted electronically to Ms. Carol Davis (BiomedFac-Search@cec.sc.edu). The initial screening of applicants will begin on November 1, 2010. Positions will remain open until all positions are filled.

The University of South Carolina is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Applications from underrepresented minority groups and women are especially encouraged.
