Salary: Internationally competitive, plus benefits

Are you seeking an academic appointment in bioengineering in a department which is leading the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally? If so, then this exciting, challenging and rewarding opportunity may be the next career step for you.

Due to rapid growth and the strategic importance of the discipline of bioengineering at Imperial, the major new translational White City Campus and the flagship Sir Michael Uren Hub, the Department of Bioengineering wishes to appoint up to four outstanding academics at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professorial level. We invite applications from candidates across all areas of bioengineering, highlighting some specific areas earmarked for growth:

  • Biomechanics/Mechanobiology
  • AI for health
  • Medical imaging
  • Soft Robotics

Imperial College London is one of the world’s leading engineering focused universities and its mission is to achieve enduring excellence in both research and education, and we are committed to making life changing advancements for the benefit of society. The Department of Bioengineering is committed to this mission through advancing the frontiers of our knowledge, translating that knowledge for societal benefit, and educating leaders in the discipline’s three main areas:

  • Biomedical Engineering (developing devices, techniques and interventions for human health)
  • Biological Engineering (solving problems related to the life sciences and their applications for health)
  • Biomimetics (using the structures and functions of living organisms as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines).

In the most recent national research assessment, 95% of the Department's returned research was judged either world leading or internationally excellent and in the National Student Survey (2020) we achieved 82% overall student satisfaction. We are committed to building on this success through the recruitment of talented academic staff.

We specifically welcome applications from all underrepresented groups. If you self-identify as being part of one of these groups, then we invite you to contact the Head of Department for an informal discussion.

The posts will be based either at the South Kensington Campus or at the White City Campus, dependent on research area and facility requirements, on a full time, open ended basis.

The departmental research activities may be found at: www.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering

Closing Date: 14/02/2021

Interviews will be held from 25th-26th March.

For an informal discussion please contact Professor Anthony Bull, the Head of Department of Bioengineering – email: a.bull@imperial.ac.uk or telephone: 020 7594 5186.

For further assistance with the application process, please contact Angela Glyes, PA to the Head of Department of Bioengineering – email: a.glyes@imperial.ac.uk.
