The School of Medicine (SOM) and School of Engineering Medicine (SEM) at Texas A&M University invite applications for multiple full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant, associate, and full professor ranks. Academic tenure appointments will be in one of the 9 departments in the School of Medicine, with a physical location of faculty in the ENMED Building located in the Texas Medical Center (TMC) in Houston, Texas. The TMC is the largest medical center in the world with 21 hospitals and 8 specialty institutions including the largest pediatric hospital and the largest cancer hospital. It is also a collaborative hub of medical technology innovation with numerous start-ups, incubators, accelerators, and research institutions.
Successful applicants will be required to teach, advise and mentor graduate students; develop an independent, externally funded research program; participate in all aspects of the department’s activities; and serve the profession. Research programs are sought at the intersection of engineering and medicine, including (but not limited to) advanced interventional technologies, regenerative engineering, imaging and diagnostics, predictive analytics, innovative therapeutics, healthcare data science (AI/ML), medical robotics, and telemedicine.
ENMED (enmed.tamu.edu) is Texas A&M University’s innovative Engineering Medicine medical education option and translational research program, developed in a partnership with the College of Engineering (engineering.tamu.edu), the School of Medicine (medicine.tamu.edu), and Houston Methodist Hospital (houstonmethodist.org), to educate a new kind of physician, an invention-minded doctor deemed a “physicaneer”, with the goal to make significant contributions to the transformation of health care through the development of innovative medical technologies. As part of Texas A&M’s School of Medicine’s M.D. program and the College of Engineering’s Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering’s graduate program, ENMED delivers a fully integrated engineering and medicine medical school curriculum with a focus on engineering design, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
The Texas A&M University flagship campus in the twin cities of Bryan and College Station, Texas, is conveniently located in a triangle formed by Dallas, Houston, and Austin. Texas A&M has more than 69,300 graduate and undergraduate students. Research expenditures of Texas A&M University exceeded the $1 billion-mark last year, ranking it in the top 20 universities nationwide. With an endowment valued at more than $11.5 billion, the university ranks third among U.S. public universities and eighth overall. Texas A&M is aware that attracting and retaining exceptional faculty often depends on meeting the needs of two careers and having policies that contribute to work-life balance.
