The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences seeks applicants for a position at the tenure-track level in Biomedical Imaging Science, with an expected start date of July 1, 2017.
All areas of imaging and image processing will be considered, including but not limited to unconventional sensing methods for high resolution/high throughput imaging, the creation and analysis of algorithms for computational imaging and image processing, and concrete applications on multiple scales; e.g. super resolution microscopy, compressive sensing etc. Research that has proven or potential clinical applications are of particular interest. We seek someone who in addition to developing a research program, would contribute to teaching and curriculum development in Applied Mathematics at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree in areas that include mathematical, statistical and computational methods for extracting, processing and interpreting images, and allied fields in biomedical engineering by the expected start date.
Required application documents include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and up to three representative papers. Candidates should also submit the names and contact information for at least three and up to five references. The application is complete only when three letters have been received. We encourage candidates to apply by January 10 2017, but will continue to review applications until the position is filled. Applicants should apply on-line at http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/7298
Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
About Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) serves as the connector and integrator of Harvard’s teaching and research efforts in engineering, applied sciences, and technology. Our core tenets—educating broad-minded students; interdisciplinary research; integration across disciplines; and balancing theory, experimentation, and practice—create an unmatched environme...nt for learning and exploration. Through collaboration with researchers from all parts of Harvard, other universities, and corporate and foundation partners, we bring discovery and innovation directly to bear on improving human life and society.
SEAS is organized around world-class teaching and learning at the bachelors, masters and doctoral levels (in applied mathematics, applied physics, computer science, bioengineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and environmental science and engineering) and world-changing research. At the undergraduate level, our educational mission is twofold:
• Engineering for All: to provide all Harvard undergraduates with an understanding of technology, engineering design, and the application of scientific and mathematical knowledge that they will require, as the next generation of leaders, to navigate in an increasingly complex technological world;
• Broad-Minded Engineers and Applied Scientists: to give undergraduate concentrators a rigorous education of depth and breadth, combining a strong technical foundation in fundamental engineering and applied sciences with critical thinking, creativity, design, entrepreneurship, and a grounding in the liberal arts that allows them to understand the societal context of their technical work.
