Faculty Position (ausserordentliche
Professur) in Biomedical Engineering
The Medical Faculty of the University of Bern invites applications for a
faculty position in the field of Biomedical Microfluidics and Organs-on-Chip Systems dedicated for biomedical applications research. The
position will be established at the ARTORG Center for Biomedical
Engineering Research. The professorship will be heading the existing
Lung Regeneration Technologies Group, a joint technological and
clinical research effort of the ARTORG Center together with the
departments of Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery at the University
hospital Bern, Inselspital.
The successful candidate should have a PhD in biomedical engineering
or similar fields and a proven track record in at least two of the following research areas: microfluidics, microtechnologies, cell biology, micro-fabrication and thin film technologies, material sciences and in the
domain of cells-on-chip and organs-on-chip technologies, particularly
lung-on-chip as well as advanced in-vitro models for personalized
The candidate is expected to continue and further strengthen the
internationally recognized, interdisciplinary research program of the
existing Lung Regeneration Technologies group. The focus of the
research should be on organs-on-chip technologies that allow the
investigation of the pathomechanisms of specific diseases as well
as the testing of efficiency and toxicity of drug candidates or other
chemical substances. Furthermore, a specific focus of the work should
be the development of novel pharmaceutical testing methods
specifically for lung diseases. However, future collaboration schemes
beyond this topic shall be envisioned.
Additional prerequisites are a strong motivation and an undisputable
commitment to undergraduate and graduate student education. The
professorship will be embedded in the Graduate School for Cellular
and Biomedical Sciences of the University of Bern and the specialized
Master’s program in Biomedical Engineering, bridging the fields
of engineering and clinical science and in the Master’s program in
Candidates should demonstrate a successful track record in the
acquisition of competitive third party funding. Experience in
professional leadership, budgeting and administration of at least a
medium-sized research group is essential. In order to assure high
socio-economic impact of research program, the candidate should
provide expertise in technology transfer to clinics and industry and
in the planning and conducting of clinical trials evaluating novel

Open-Rank, Tenure-Track Faculty Position in the
Department of Genetics, Genomics and Informatics
The Department of Genetics, Genomics and Informatics at the University
of Tennessee, College of Medicine seeks outstanding candidates for open-rank, tenure-track faculty positions with a research focus in translational
genomics, genome informatics, or systems genetics. Investigators working
at the interface between genetics, neuroscience, human development, and
pharmacogenetics are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants should
demonstrate the ability to conduct high quality research, secure extramural
funding, teach relevant courses, and advise students in degree programs. Rank
of appointment and seed funds will match experience, productivity, and support
history. Applicants should possess a doctoral degree (PhD, MD,) in genetics,
genomics, bioinformatics, or a related discipline at the time of appointment.
The new Department of Genetics, Genomics and Informatics is made up of
a small group of basic science faculty with research interests in the genetics
of complex diseases using murine models. A larger group of faculty with
expertise in human genetics (and potential collaborators) are housed in other
departments and colleges at UTHSC and affliated institutions—including the
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and
the University of Memphis. UTHSC is a research hub for the feld of systems
genetics and has been responsible for the creation of new models and novel
statistical genetic approaches (see www.genenetwork.org).
Review of applicants will begin on April 1, 2015 and will continue until the
positions are flled. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2015. Please forward by
email your complete curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research (ongoing
and planned), and names and email addresses of three professional references.
