Associate/Full Professor Interdisciplinary Position in Biomedical Engineering Northeastern University Electrical & Computer Engineering - College of Engineering
and the College of Arts and Sciences

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences at Northeastern University are seeking senior interdisciplinary applicants, at the rank of Associate or Full Professor, who are working at the interface of electrical and computer engineering and its applications to biology and medicine. Successful candidates will be jointly appointed in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a relevant department in the College of Arts and Sciences, with the locus of tenure to be determined according to the candidate's expertise. The search is open to candidates from the broadest range of fields of science and engineering with appropriate interdisciplinary interests and background. Applicants will be expected to play a leadership role in opening new areas of research or significantly enhancing existing areas of strength at Northeastern.

Anticipated start date: Fall 2010. Qualifications for the position include a PhD, a strong record of scientific achievement and extramural funding, and a commitment to leadership in interdisciplinary research.
Additional Information The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has over 40 tenured and tenure-track faculty with areas of strength including medical and biological applications of imaging, image and signal processing, machine learning, electromagnetic modeling, nanotechnology, and computer engineering. The Department plays a leading role in four national research centers, including an ERC in sensing & imaging and an NSEC in nanomanufacturing. The College of Engineering has growing strength in many areas of bioengineering and inaugurated a Bioengineering Graduate Program in Fall 2009.
The College of Arts and Sciences has existing relevant strengths in biological imaging using MRI/fMRI (7T), PET, and SPECT/CT (all for small animal imaging), EEG, optical imaging, and electron microscopy. Relevant research units include the Center for Translational Neuroimaging, the Center for Drug Discovery, the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Complex Systems, the Barnett Institute for Chemical and Biological Analysis, and an NSF/NIH IGERT program in nanomedicine. ECE faculty participate in a number of these existing interdisciplinary initiatives. Particular foci of research interests in the College include nanomedicine, proteomics, cardiac dynamics, complex networks, cognitive neuroscience, sensory processes, biomolecular structure and dynamics, and movement control neuroscience. Faculty with relevant expertise are housed in the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology.
