Professor (all ranks) in Biomedical Devices/Population Exposure and Health Assessment

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, the School of Biological Health Systems Engineering (SBHSE), and the Biodesign Institute invite applications for a full-time tenure-track position in the Center for Environmental Health Engineering focusing on biomedical devices for exposure assessment and toxicity/drug testing.  Appointments will be made at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments.  Qualified candidates at all levels are encouraged to apply. The position will begin August 2018.

The Center for Environmental Health Engineering, ( directed by Rolf Halden, Ph.D., P.E., works to protect human health and critical ecosystems by detecting, minimizing and ultimately, eliminating harmful chemical and biological agents through early threat detection and the implementation of cost-effective engineering, clinical and policy interventions. Outstanding candidates with an interest in the design, development and application of in vitro and in vivo sensor arrays for human exposure assessment and toxicant/drug screening are encouraged to apply. Center faculty and staff feature interdisciplinary expertise in analytical chemistry, biology, urban metabolism metrology, environmental engineering, biomedical informatics and bioengineering. 

Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, the School of Biological Health Systems Engineering is currently the most involved in the interest areas of the search.  Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, publish their research contributions in leading peer-reviewed journals, serve the university and bioengineering community through professional service activities, create intellectual property of value to society, and contribute to excellence in teaching and mentoring of students, postdocs and early career scientists.

Required Qualifications:

  • A doctoral degree or MD/PhD in the biological sciences, bioengineering, or a related field, at the time of appointment;
  • Demonstrated research and teaching/mentoring excellence at the undergraduate and/or graduate level;
  • A demonstrated record of significant publications; and
  • Potential to develop a strong extramurally-funded research program.

Review of applications will begin December 15, 2017; if not filled, reviews will occur on the 1st and 15th of every month thereafter until the search is closed.  To apply, candidates are asked to submit the following through their lnterfolio Dossier available at
