Job Opportunity: Associate Professor in Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), in the College of Engineering at UC Davis, invites candidates for a tenured Associate Professor in Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging faculty position. Candidates should have an existing track record in Biophotonics, specifically in Optical Spectroscopy and Imaging, and be open to collaborative studies with faculty and scientists at the UC Davis Medical Center, as well as the newly established National Center for Interventional Biophotonic Technologies funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.

The expectation will be to build an internationally successful and interdisciplinary research program, be active in acquiring extramural funding, participate in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate level, and be willing to help establish an innovative multi-disciplinary curriculum in the field of medical Biophotonics.

Considering the Associate Professor rank, candidates should have a commensurate record of scholarly accomplishments, teaching experience, and a sustained externally funded research program. Preference will be given to candidates that can demonstrate a commitment to collaboration in their previous research program, in particular with clinical departments and the medical imaging community. We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate a history of successful, team-based research, interaction with faculty, students, and other scientists from diverse backgrounds. In addition, the research program of successful candidates is expected to integrate various campus strengths (e.g., of the School of Medicine, the School of Veterinary Medicine, UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research).
