The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) seeks full- time senior and junior faculty for tenured or tenure-track positions, in the following areas:

Translational Bioengineering (in collaboration with new Engineering-Based Carle Illinois College of Medicine, and the Healthcare Engineering Systems Center)
• Wearable and implantable devices that track physiological information for personalized medicine.
• Big data/machine learning methods applied to task-based feature selection and medical decision making that informs prevention, diagnosis, and treatment planning and assessments.
• Human-system modelers that describe patient health trajectories and treatment options.
• Advanced robotic techniques for diagnostic sensing, medical imaging and surgical interventions.

Neuro-engineering (in collaboration with Carle Foundation Hospital, Beckman Institute, and Institute for Genomic Biology)
• Highly collaborative engineer developing technologies for real-time, non-invasive measurements of brain processes and cognition. Strong technical skills are required but with knowledge and interest in application areas that are local strengths: plasticity, interventions, or modeling across all spatial scales.
• Bio-inspired and brain machine interface devices, from molecular to macro scale.
• Next-gen electrophysiological measurement: wireless, energy-efficient monitoring of electrical activity in the brain of humans from traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, or other pathology. Novel devices, materials, and signal processing for understanding the brain and its dysfunctions.
• Faculty with highly innovative approaches to modeling brain function.

Computational Systems Biology and Genomics (in collaboration with Institute for Genomic Biology and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications)
• Microbiome: Computational biologist developing dynamical models of microbial communities. Connections with new IGB theme at areas/microbiome-metabolic-engineering
• Big Data in genomics: computational biologist working on cutting-edge algorithms to analyze next generation sequencing data, including data from cancer and phylogenomics projects to construct predictive statistical models; e.g., see Mayo-UIUC/NCSA project: genomic-data-analysis.html
• Systems biology: computational biologist working on the analysis of functional genomics data or whole cell modeling. Possible cluster hire within the neuroscience area and connection to IGB themes.
