Faculty Position in Cellular Engineering

Physiology & Biomedical Engineering
Why Mayo Clinic
This faculty position includes substantial long-term institutional and departmental support as well as a competitive startup package with support for personnel and equipment. Additional benefits for faculty at Mayo Clinic include intramural funding opportunities for research projects and instrumentation. The successful candidate will have opportunities to not only establish and maintain a highly recognized research program, but also to integrate with existing institutional strengths in immunology, oncology, and regenerative medicine. The candidate will be strongly encouraged to explore entrepreneurial opportunities aligned with Mayo Clinic’s 2030 vision to Cure, Connect, and Transform.

The Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering emphasizes a culture of trans-disciplinary collaborations between scientists, engineers and physicians to drive ideas from basic concepts to clinical practice. Current major areas of emphasis include: Physiology, Tissue Engineering and Regeneration, Biosensing and Instrumentation, Biomedical Imaging, Biomechanics, and Modeling and Data Analytics. The successful candidate will have a primary staff appointment in the Department, and will be located on the Mayo Clinic Arizona campus, but will also be expected to actively seek out collaborations with researchers, physician scientists and clinical investigators in other departments and research areas across the Arizona campus as well as at major Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota and Florida.

The Research shield at Mayo Clinic is committed to creating a diverse environment and recognizes that diverse research teams make better decisions, are more equipped to solve complex problems and adapt to change, and produce better outcomes. That diversity is about opening up to unconventional ideas that create better outcomes, while recognizing colleagues' unique contributions. Become part of the legacy that embraces these differences and enables us to provide the best care to patients from all over the world.

Mayo Clinic is an integrated, multidisciplinary academic medical center with comprehensive programs in medical education and research that span across three group practice sites. We support a vibrant research enterprise, with programs in basic, translational, clinical, and population sciences. The successful applicant will have access to the resources of 22 Research Centers including the Center for Biomedical Discovery, Center for Individualized Medicine and the Center for Regenerative Medicine. Mayo Clinic has a large number of world class laboratory and state-of-the-art shared resource facilities. We offer a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural funding, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits.
Position description
The Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering is seeking an energetic and innovative investigator in the broad area of Cellular Engineering. The successful candidate will introduce, advance and implement novel engineering approaches to modulating cellular behavior towards the study of human health and disease. The candidate will be expected to establish an internationally-recognized research program that emphasizes trans-disciplinary collaboration between scientists, clinician investigators and clinicians in the department as well as in relevant clinical and basic science departments and centers from across the institution. Alignment with existing strengths in immunology, cancer biology, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering is preferred, but all relevant areas of basic and translational research in cellular engineering will be considered. Applicants developing and employing novel approaches toward human translational cellular therapies, including immuno-engineering and stem cell engineering will be prioritized.

Credentials of a successful candidate will include a doctoral degree (Ph.D., M.D., Sc.D., or equivalent) with background in a relevant science and/or engineering field (e.g. biomedical engineering, cell biology, immunology, physiology, nanotechnology). Applications from emerging investigators are welcome, as are applications from more established investigators for whom a record of extramural funding consistent with or preferably exceeding the candidate’s career stage is expected. Candidates should exhibit evidence of leadership skills and multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations. Consideration will be given to candidates at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor level.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV and research statement.
