The Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering (CBE) at the Florida A&M University (FAMU)-Florida State University (FSU) College of Engineering invites applications from highly qualified individuals for a tenured or tenure track faculty position in biomedical engineering, in the city of Tallahassee, Florida. We are seeking faculty candidates for an assistant professor position, however, exceptional candidates at high ranks will be considered.
CBE has a dynamic group of faculty members actively involved in research encompassing various areas of biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, and materials science and engineering. Successful candidates will have many opportunities to interact and collaborate with the NHMFL, FSU College of Medicine, FSU Interdisciplinary Program in Materials Science and Engineering, FSU Institute of Molecular Biophysics, FSU Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship, and FSU Departments of Scientific Computing, and Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as the FAMU Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. (Details can be found at the Department web page: www.eng.fsu.edu/cbe).
The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is the unique combination of two outstanding universities with overlapping but distinct missions - the nation's top Historically Black College/University and a Tier-1 research university. As such we provide an outstanding research and entrepreneurship-based education to one of the most diverse student populations in the US. Faculty are employed by one of our partner universities, but hold joint faculty privileges at both institutions.
Candidates must possess an earned Ph.D. in biomedical or chemical engineering, or a related discipline, and demonstrate documented potential for outstanding research. Priority will be given to candidates with strong biomedical engineering background who can interact with and build upon existing research in cell and tissue engineering, biomaterials, bioimaging and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL). Successful candidates are expected to develop research programs that are internationally-recognized with significant and sustained funding, incorporate interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers across campus, and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in education. Teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and supervising undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers are expected. Participation in the development of the new bachelor degree in biomedical engineering in the department is also expected.

About FAMU-FSU College of Engineering
The College of Engineering was established as a joint program serving two universities in Tallahassee, Florida: The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, which received recognition from the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in 2010 for ranking number one as the institution of origin for African Americans earning Doctorates in Natural Science and Engineering; and, The Florida State University which has gained worldwide recognition for its extensive graduate and research programs.
The College is a leading academic institution with excellent records of achievement in research and public service. It offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering as well as M.S. and Ph.D. programs. The College has attracted an outstanding faculty from all over the world. Thousands of young, intelligent and self-motivated men and women have attended the College in the last two decades, receiving over 5000 degrees. These graduates are a diverse group of engineers, from many races, ethnicities, and nationalities.
The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering has been widely hailed for taking... the initiative to create programs to align academic curriculum with industry needs. The College ensures that the students learn what they need to learn through quality teaching and research. All programs offered by the College have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Our primary goal is to provide a challenging and educational experience for our students that will enable them to become effective engineering professionals in an increasingly technological society in which engineering jobs are expected to grow by 11% over the 2008-2018 decade, and starting salaries are among the highest of all college graduates.*
