College of Engineering
Cluster Hire in Health Engineering
Fall 2024




The College of Engineering (CoE, https://www.coe.miami.edu/) at the University of Miami is proudly celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2022. In strategic partnership with several units at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, it is launching an ambitious growth area in Health Engineering. Multiple hires are expected to support several new initiatives:


Synthetic Biology and Biophysics: The advent of genetic engineering has helped design engineered cells to produce recombinant proteins and other chemicals. Cellular engineering and synthetic biology offers opportunities for chemical production for a variety of applications including pharmaceutical drugs. Miami Engineering is setting up a core group in synthetic biology where engineering principles are applied to biology in order to create programmable cells for a variety of applications. Other areas of interest are in biophysics and metabolic engineering.


Engineering Cancer CuresTM: South Florida's only NCI-Designated Cancer Center, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC) recently broke ground on a 12-story 244,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art premier cancer research facility to accommodate its rapid expansion. Importantly, SCCC and CoE recently launched a joint research initiative, Engineering Cancer CuresTM, to identify and nurture collaborative research opportunities in artificial intelligence, cell & tissue engineering, and smart materials.


Engineering and Applied Physics in Urology: Backed by significant recent philanthropic and institutional commitments, the Desai Sethi Urology Institute (DSUI) is invested in a robust research program that fosters a culture of innovation and collaboration. In a recent collaboration with CoE, biomedical engineers embedded within DSUI have started working closely with physicians to translate engineering solutions into the future urologic health.


Institute for Neural Engineering: Miami Project to Cure Paralysis is a center of excellence focused on therapeutic strategies for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. In collaboration with The Project, the Institute for Neural Engineering at the University of Miami brings together teams of scientists, engineers, clinicians and industry partners focused on robust research programs in assistive neurotechnologies, sensorimotor integration in healthy and pathological states, clinical applications of movement and neurocognitive disorders, sensory disorders, neurotherapeutics, neurostimulation, tissue engineering, high resolution neurophysiology, imaging and neuroplasticity.


Engineering the Eye: Bascom Palmer Eye Institute (BPEI) is a global leader in eye care, vision research and education that has been consistently ranked #1 in Ophthalmology for two decades. The BPEI has a long history of leading clinical and technological innovation including the development of surgical instrumentation, implants, and imaging technology. Areas of interest include advanced ophthalmic imaging, ophthalmic applications of AI, ocular tissue engineering and regeneration.


In line with these opportunities, the College of Engineering at the University of Miami will be recruiting for several tenure-track/tenured faculty at all ranks to lead research programs in Healthcare Engineering with an emphasis in Cancer Engineering, Urologic Engineering, Neural Engineering, or Ophthalmic Engineering. Applications will be considered at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor ranks. Appointments are expected to be made in Departments of Biomedical Engineering, and Chemical, Environmental, and Materials Engineering, but applications will be considered for all departments. Joint appointments will also be considered, particularly with the Miller School of Medicine. Each appointment is expected to start on August 15, 2024.


Candidates must hold a PhD or MD/PhD in engineering or related disciplines. Applicants must be dedicated to establishing an inclusive environment for learning and research, have an outstanding record of research accomplishments, a strong interest in undergraduate and graduate education, and a commitment to professional service.


For full consideration, please upload one single file of maximum size 5MB with the following; 1) Letter of interest that describes your anticipated contributions to scholarship, teaching, and service, 2) Current CV, 3) Research program vision statement (include hiring emphasis area, and synergy with existing UM investigators, centers, and institutes), 4) Teaching statement, 5) A statement that describes your vision for making contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion, 6) Names and contact information of three or more references. Applications will be accepted till the positions are filled; however, preference will be given to applications received before December 1, 2023.
