Faculty Position in Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is pleased to invite applicants for a Clinical Professor of Practice position at the Assistant or Associate level, available beginning Spring or Summer 2020.

OSU and President Michael Drake are committed to the elevation and advancement of teaching and learning. This is accomplished in part through multiple university-wide incentives and professional development opportunities for all faculty, making OSU a great place to start and/or continue to build a fruitful teaching career.

The BME department was founded in 2006 following a 35-year history as a research center, has 29 departmental faculty members (including 4 Clinical Professors of Practice), and over 70 affiliated graduate faculty across five different colleges. We maintain a tradition of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education and research, with thriving partnerships across campus that include The OSU Wexner Medical Center and the OSU Department of Engineering Education. BME is about to implement a newly revamped undergraduate curriculum, effective autumn 2020, aimed to prepare students for their post-graduate education and/or career goals. We are also developing a new master’s program in Medical Product Development, and will be moving into a new academic and research facility in summer 2020.

The Clinical Professor of Practice position is a non-tenure track, teaching-focused designation necessitated by the growth of our ABET accredited undergraduate major in Biomedical Engineering. We are seeking education innovators who will help grow our evolving undergrad and masters’ curricula. Highly competitive candidates would have significant experience in evidence-based pedagogical teaching techniques, with attention to inclusion of multiple perspectives and demographics.

  • Develop and teach undergrad (and some masters) courses and curricula, including Intro to BME, a new Quantitative Principles of Cellular and Molecular Systems course, BME lab courses, and/or engineering design
  • Participate in various service activities, including department and college committees
  • Disseminate scholarly educational results in conference proceedings (i.e. ASEE, BMES)
  • Participate in the obtainment of funding to support the educational goals of the BME department
  • Support post-graduation career attainment and/or further education goals for bachelors and master’s students

Required Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, or terminal degree in a relevant discipline
  • Demonstrated (or potential for) record of excellence in teaching and service
  • Ability and desire to implement evidence-based pedagogical teaching techniques in the classroom
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability and desire to motivate and inspire students
