Posting Date: 12-07-2021

Position Summary

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego invites applications from outstanding candidates for an Assistant Teaching Professor (also termed Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment). This appointment confers membership in the Academic Senate, and, contingent upon promotion, security of employment. All candidates must be committed to excellence in undergraduate education and demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. As a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, education, and collaboration, we are especially interested in candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students in the sciences, and/or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.


Assistant Professor of Gerontechnology/Bioengineering

Posting Date: 02-10-2022

Position Summary

The Division of Geriatrics, Gerontology and Palliative Care under the Department of Medicine and the Department of Bioengineering in the School of Engineering at UC San Diego will be inviting applications for a position at the Assistant Professor level (tenured-track faculty position). The focus of this search is in innovations in “Gerontechnology” to develop technological solutions designed to optimize the health and independence of older adults. Modern and emerging technologies have the potential to preserve, promote and restore the functional independence of older adults. While technology and technology- enabled devices and services such as mobility devices, smartphones and apps, and smart home-based systems are ubiquitous, they have not yet achieved their potential to promote, preserve and recover independence in older people. Therefore, Gerontechnology aims to bring together technology developers and aging experts to develop technologies that better serve older adults and address their specific needs.
