Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a leading academic center in Imaging and Medical Devices (IMD). The research and education portfolio in IMD encompasses all aspects of medical technology, from hardware development to artificial intelligence, and comprises over 20 faculty with interests ranging from biophotonics to x-ray imaging to prosthetics and surgical robotics. To support the growth of the undergraduate and graduate programs in IMD, BME is seeking a full-time Lecturer. We are looking for candidates with strong technical background in the relevant fields and a passion for teaching engineering as an instructor and curriculum developer.
Working closely with IMD faculty on the development of new upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses for the program, in particular on fundamental aspects of imaging and device physics and artificial intelligence in application to biosensor and imaging data
Acting as a lead instructor for 1-2 IMD courses per semester
Supervising student laboratories across various courses in IMD
Providing general oversight of the IMD curriculum: identifying course needs, ensuring adequate hardware and software resources for student laboratories, coordinating educational content
The lecturer is expected to become an institutional leader in engineering education. The position involves a high degree of autonomy and provides the opportunity to work alongside world-class faculty on building an engaging student experience featuring latest advances in IMD technologies.
The ideal candidate will have a graduate degree in electrical engineering, physics, biomedical engineering, or related discipline. Strong competence in signals and systems, imaging and sensor physics, and related algorithms and artificial intelligence techniques is essential to this role. The candidate should possess graduate-level research experience and publication track-record in at least some of these areas. The position requires the ability to conduct laboratory experimentation and debug software and hardware issues with laboratory equipment.
Applications are to be submitted online at http://apply.interfolio.com/106052. The electronic applications should include: cover letter; CV; statement of teaching philosophy; teaching or mentoring portfolio; biomedical data science research portfolio; and names and email addresses of at least three references.
Applications will be accepted and evaluated until the position is filled.
Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
