The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University invites applications for academic professional track faculty positions at all levels of the lecturer, instructional professor, and professor of practice types. Of particular interest are persons with demonstrated experience and skills in academic global programs development and management, instructional enhancement, and clinical engineering. The successful applicant will teach primarily at the undergraduate level in support of the development of the undergraduate programs; advise and mentor undergraduate students; participate in all aspects of the department’s activities; and serve the profession. All positions with “professor” titles will have to perform professional service duties in addition to teaching.
