The MIT Department of Biological Engineering in Cambridge, MA invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant professor level, to begin July 1, 2023 or on a mutually agreeable date thereafter. MIT Biological Engineering is a unique department that fuses molecular and cellular bioscience with quantitative engineering approaches and includes faculty and students with diverse scientific interests and backgrounds. Areas of high priority for growth include biotechnology beyond medicine, including applications in materials, chemicals, agriculture, sustainability, energy and the environment, as well as innovative new areas for the application of biotechnology. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in a science or engineering discipline related to Biological Engineering by the beginning of employment and should have demonstrated experience in biological engineering research. A more senior faculty appointment may be considered in special cases. The department culture is vibrant, creative, and collaborative, and we strive to help each member of the community reach their greatest potential. Faculty duties include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, conducting research, as well as supervision, training and mentoring students and junior researchers.
