Description of Work

Teach courses and participate in College of Engineering outreach and service activities. Develop an externally-funded research program. Contribute to the undergraduate and graduate academic programs within the department and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both teaching and research.

The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, related in part to the University joining the Big Ten Conference in 2011. A major focus of the College’s teaching, research and outreach enterprise in the coming decade will be on strengthening collaborations and partnerships with the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Creighton University Medical Center, both located in Omaha, and Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln. Consequently, the College is seeking to hire a multidisciplinary group of faculty that have complementary expertise related to Biomedical Engineering. The College is co-located in two cities about one hour apart, with approximately 2/3 of the faculty in Lincoln and 1/3 in Omaha. The ECE Department operates in both locations.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department currently has biomedical expertise in a variety of areas including bioinformatics and imaging, and aims to build upon this foundation. Other biomedical engineering areas of strength within the College of Engineering include biomaterials, tissue engineering, nanomedicine and drug delivery, cell mechanics, biomechanics, medical device technologies, and surgical robotics.

There are many opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and UNMC, including the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior, the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory, the Center for Advanced Surgical Technology, the Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine, and the Nebraska Regenerative Medicine Project, as well as new faculty hired under this initiative across the College of Engineering.

UNL has also recently received an NIH COBRE grant to support the Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication (http://go.unl.edu/cibc); new hires may be eligible to receive funding and mentoring under this grant.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering consists of approximately 32 tenure/tenure-track faculty, 500 undergraduate students, and 120 graduate students. An outstanding infrastructure exists for conducting research, including central facilities housing state-of-the-art instrumentation within the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience and the Nebraska Engineering Research Facility, while world-class computational capabilities are available in the Holland Computing Center, which manages a top 500 supercomputer as well as other computational resources available to University of Nebraska researchers.

Minimum Required Qualifications

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer engineering, biomedical engineering or a closely related field. Applicants should have a record of strong scholarly achievement and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. Candidates must have the potential to establish a strong externally funded research program.

Preferred Qualifications

Preferred candidates demonstrate strong potential in the priority area(s) biosignal processing, computational systems biology, robotics and control, health monitoring, bio/nano-materials, prosthetic and implantable devices, or closely related biomedical engineering field.
