Tenure/Tenure Track Faculty Position in Sensorimotor Neural Engineering to Support New National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center at San Diego State University VPAA 2012/13-8

The College of Engineering at San Diego State University invites applications for a full-time tenure/tenure track faculty position starting in August 2012. The search is open to all academic ranks. For senior-level tenured appointments, a strong record of scholarly research and significant prior external funding is required. Appointment rank and salary are commensurate with qualifications. The new faculty member in the College of Engineering will be expected to have a research background and plan that integrates cross-disciplinary activities and efforts within the new Engineering Research Center (ERC). Qualifications include a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or closely related area with a research focus associated with bioinstrumentation, robotics, rehabilitation, interface devices and techniques, or termed sensorimotor neural engineering. Candidates must be capable of teaching within the existing Mechanical or Electrical Engineering curriculum. Prior research experience in a medical setting would be desirable. Practical/experimental expertises are highly desired — this would be evident by specific prior experience. For example, an ability to design and build new sensory systems to enable artificial limb articulation using brain-based wireless signals. Furthermore, the successful candidate is expected to lead and/or participate in major research proposals involving several faculty members. Screening of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send hardcopies of complete curriculum vitae, statements of research, teaching goals which include a vision of integrated activities within the center (E-mail applications will not be accepted) and the names and addresses of three references to:
