The BME department seeks candidates to join our productive, diverse, and interdisciplinary tenure-track faculty broadly in the research areas of biomaterials, drug delivery, synthetic biology, regenerative engineering, or gene therapy and editing. Preference will be given to candidates to be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor, however outstanding candidates at higher ranks will be considered. Ideal candidates will establish a vibrant, externally-funded research program, teach and interact with students at all levels, and work collaboratively with other Vanderbilt faculty. The candidate will have the opportunity to integrate with a cluster of faculty working across all areas of cellular and molecular bioengineering housed in the new Engineering and Science Building. The ESB opened in 2017 and is designed to promote interdisciplinary, translational, and entrepreneurial activities.
