Junior Faculty Position, Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES)

The Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) http://imes.mit.edu/ at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), in Cambridge, Massachusetts, invites applicants to apply for junior tenure-track faculty positions in the area of medical data science to begin July 1, 2020, or on a mutually agreed date thereafter.

IMES is pioneering novel research and graduate education paradigms at the convergence of engineering, science, and medicine. IMES also houses the Harvard-MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology (HST), MIT’s Clinical Research Center and Center for Translational Research, the Medical Electronic Device Realization Center, and the Center for Microbiome Informatics and Therapeutics. The appointment will be made in partnership with the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and the position will be part of the Artificial Intelligence and Decision Making (AI&D) faculty.  The position will have equal academic responsibilities in IMES and EECS. 

Applicants should hold a PhD in engineering, science, computer science, or a related field (including MD or MD/PhD) by the beginning of employment. While all research areas are of interest, IMES is particularly interested in candidates whose research is pertinent to using “big data” to inform and improve clinical decision-making. The successful candidate will be expected to fulfill all teaching, research, and service obligations of a junior faculty member at MIT. Faculty duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, advising students, conducting original scholarly research, developing course materials at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and service to MIT and the profession.

Interested candidates should submit application materials electronically at http://imes-search.mit.edu/register. Each application should include: curriculum vitae; the names and addresses of three or more references; a strategic statement of research interests; and a statement of teaching interests. Each candidate must arrange for reference letters to be uploaded at http://imes-search.mit.edu/letters.

Applications received by February 28, 2020, will be given priority. Questions should be addressed to imes-search@mit.edu.

With MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in engineering education, research, and practice, we especially encourage minorities and women to apply.
