Bioengineering Tenured or Tenure-Track Positions

The Department of Bioengineering is engaged in a multi-year effort to fill tenure-track and tenured positions at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels.

The University of Pennsylvania provides unique opportunities for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering is prominent in the strategic plans of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the University emphasizing integrative research in all aspects of human health that range from fundamental to translational research. All of Penn’s twelve schools are situated on one campus making it an ideal environment for multidisciplinary research. Bioengineering seeks to enhance its integrative research and educational programs. We are especially interested in candidates whose interests are aligned with the school’s strategic plan (

Thematic areas for growth of our program include precision engineering for health, intelligent and autonomous systems for engineered life, and engineering and artificial intelligence models powering digital health, which encompass a variety of subdisciplines, technologies, and applications in bioengineering. However, we encourage applications from candidates in any emerging area of bioengineering.


Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering or a related field. At the assistant professor level, individuals should demonstrate superb academic credentials and promise for a career in bioengineering research. At higher professorial levels, an evident track record of research excellence including successful competitive research funding and academic standing is expected.

A commitment to teaching should also be apparent including development of undergraduate and graduate courses, supervision of doctoral students, and academic advising of students at all levels.

The application for 2023 is now closed. We will post the application link here when it reopens.
