Upload Application Materials

The University of California at Davis has two or more positions available in the areas of Prosthetics and Brain-Computer Interfaces. Senior ranks are preferred but all ranks will be considered. Appointments in Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering are preferred, but joint appointments in other departments within the College of Engineering, School of Veterinary Medicine, School of Medicine, College of Biological Sciences and College of Letters and Science are possible. The research program of a successful candidate is expected to integrate campus strengths in engineering, neurosciences, and medicine. Candidates interested in helping lead efforts to integrate these disciplines on the UC Davis campus, possibly as part of a new Center for Neuroengineering & Medicine, are encouraged to apply. The current positions are part of a cluster of hires that will also include an associated position in neurobiology/motor control. We encourage candidates from all specialties within the disciplines of Prosthetics and Brain-Computer Interfaces to apply. UC Davis is one of few universities in the nation that houses a College of Engineering, School of Medicine, School of Veterinary Medicine, Neuroscience programs (including the Neuroscience Graduate Program, the Center for Neuroscience, the Center for Mind & Brain, and the M.I.N.D. Institute), as well as a National Primate Research Center (one of only seven centers supported by NIH nationwide).

To be considered, applicants must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent (including M.D./Ph.D.) in any field of engineering or a related field including Neuroscience. All ranks will be considered; however, senior candidates will be preferred and must have experience that merits appointment to the tenured title of Associate or Full Professor. Also, applicants must possess an excellent record of accomplishment in research, and a demonstrated track record of obtaining extramural research support. Applicants must be able to teach and develop undergraduate and graduate courses in engineering related to their disciplines.

Required materials include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief statements of research and teaching plans, and contact information for 5 references. In addition, applicants may submit a Statement of Contributions to Diversity that highlights past efforts to encourage diversity (
