Job Description:

Emmitt Memorial Professor of Instruction in Biomedical Engineering

Job No: 497135
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: Biomedical Engineering

The Biomedical Engineering (BME) Department at Bucknell University invites applications for the inaugural Emmitt Memorial Professor of Instruction to begin August 2023. The initial position is for three years, with regular reappointments and opportunities for advancement along this track. With this new position, Bucknell's Biomedical Engineering Department is seeking a faculty colleague passionate about innovation in undergraduate BME education. We expect to hire at the assistant professor level but are open to considering outstanding candidates at other ranks. This position is ideal for candidates interested in a teaching-focused career in academia with an emphasis on undergraduate instruction, curriculum development and innovation, student engagement, and departmental and college community.

This 9-month, teaching professor position includes a 6 course teaching load split over two semesters, with additional expectations of new course development, departmental contributions, college and university service and undergraduate student advising. A candidate interested in pursuing enhanced service, administrative, or leadership opportunities at Bucknell could seek a reduction in teaching load in consultation with the department chair (contingent upon the needs of the department). Such pursuits should be student-focused and could include, but are not limited to, development of clinical and/or community-based learning experiences for students, healthcare technology design, cross-college connections to the liberal arts or management, inclusive excellence efforts, accreditation activities, or other supplemental educational activities for students. Optional compensated summer student engagement opportunities are also possible, including clinical collaborations, supporting College of Engineering programs such as Engineering Camp and the engineering EXCELerator, teaching summer courses, and participation in cross-college initiatives.

This new colleague would join a top-ranked, highly selective undergraduate biomedical engineering department with small class sizes (Minimum Qualifications:
A successful candidate must be ABD or have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or a closely related discipline at time of appointment. Clear evidence of the potential for teaching excellence is essential, and a strong interest in continued professional development is expected.
