The Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at Regis College seeks an Adjunct Professor specializing in Biomedical Engineering to teach BE440, Biomolecular Mechanics and Control. This course will focus on the principles of thermodynamics and kinetics applied to the analysis and design of biomolecular systems. Topics include mass and energy balances, entropy, chemical equilibria, enzyme kinetics and the effect of external fields (e.g., mechanical forces, electric potential) on biomolecular reaction equilibria and kinetics. In the latter portion of the course, these foundational concepts will be applied to natural biomolecular networks and synthetic biocircuits with the purpose of analyzing their dynamic homeostatic behavior and natural feedback and feed-forward control in the body.
This class will be held in person on the Weston, MA campus. The day and time has not been set as of yet and can be worked around the instructor’s schedule.
Teach BE 440 as a synchronous, in person course. Engage with all responsibilities associated with teaching the section: modify the course design as needed, direct oversight of student work, grading, office hours, overall student classroom and academic assessment.
Anyone hired for this position must be willing and able to design and implement the course components. As an undergraduate program, there are no TAs available to assist with the course.
Minimum requirement: An earned MS in Biomedical Engineering or similar field, with demonstrated evidence of specializations in medical devices, instrumentation and/or bioprocessing; PhDs welcome.
Demonstrated evidence of at least three years prior teaching experience (lectures and labs) at the undergraduate level; experience with designing and implementing undergraduate labs greatly desired.
Commitment to creating an inclusive classroom learning environment in keeping with the University's commitment to inclusive excellence in a diverse educational community.
Demonstrated ability to collaborate with other STEM faculty in terms of curriculum and assessment.
