Applicants for this position must have a Ph.D. in bioengineering, medicine, or a related field.  Ideal candidates will have multiple years of experience in teaching core courses in a terminal degree program.  Previous experience in teaching courses in instrumentation and signals and systems in bioengineering is preferred.  Other areas of bioengineering relevant to the mission of the department will also be considered.  Competitive applicants will show the promise of excellence in classroom teaching and will demonstrate strong teaching knowledge.  Successful applicants will join the department’s thriving community of creative, passionate, and innovative teaching faculty who contribute to high-quality instruction, curriculum development, and student mentoring.  Many faculty also engage in outreach and service activities.  Ideal candidates include those who demonstrate evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service endeavors.

BIOE at the UIUC is experiencing a period of programmatic growth, anticipating significant increases in course offerings and student numbers in both graduate and undergraduate programs.  With the completion of a new building and the launch of a new engineering-driven College of Medicine on the UIUC campus, the opportunities to influence engineering education are many. 

In order to ensure full consideration, applications must be received by October 21, 2019.  Applicants may be interviewed before the closing date; however, no hiring decision will be made until after that date.  Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.  Preferred starting date is as soon as possible, but is negotiable.  Applications should be submitted by visiting and uploading in one PDF file a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, and names and contact information for three references.  Applicants may also submit supporting material relevant to evaluating their teaching abilities.  For inquiry, please email Amy Meharry at
