Academic Open Positions

Assistant Professor of Data Science and Bioengineering

Posting Date: 10-13-2023

Position Summary

This position will hold a joint appointment in the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) and the Department of Bioengineering. The anticipated start date is Fall 2024. The focus of this search is on innovative applications of data science to advance cutting-edge and compelling questions in bioengineering. Examples include novel approaches to ‘omics analyses, use of data from novel and/or multiple sources for biological systems engineering optimization, breakthrough results in systems identification or signal processing. Appropriate matches could use data from a range of fields, including but not limited to experimental molecular biology, synthetic biology, sensor devices, or electronic health records. Candidates should have a strong record of publications and research in this interdisciplinary area of Data Science and Bioengineering. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality research that focuses on innovations and applications of complex models or other novel, data driven analytic approaches to a well-defined problem at the frontier of bioengineering, as well as the ability to address biases or other limitations arising from their given choice of approach. The successful applicant will establish a robust research program and participate in professional activities (e.g., conferences) in their domain of expertise. They are also expected to participate in department and university service as academic members of the campus community. This position involves teaching university students. The selected candidate will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate students at HDSI and Bioengineering, as well as mentor students in both units. The teaching and mentoring loads will be commensurate with the respective level of appointment in each department. Application review begins on Nov 12, 2023


Assistant, Associate or Full Project Scientist in Bioengineering FY2023-2024

Posting Date: 08-31-2023

Position Summary

Bioengineering is inviting applications for Project Scientists (non-tenured; Assistant, Associate or Full level) in Bioengineering. At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team. They are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series. Project Scientists may not serve as Principal Investigators but may serve as Co-Principal Investigators with members of the Professor or Research Scientist series. University and public service are encouraged but not required, and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments are generally for two years, with reappointment reviews to renew. The duration of the appointment will vary depending on the length of the research project and the availability of funding in the Professor's lab that is hiring. The Bioengineering Department within the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego is committed to building a diverse and inclusive faculty, staff and student body.
