Applications are invited for 2 full-time Lecturer positions starting in January 2021. Lecturers are sought to serve as primary instructors of undergraduate courses for the Biocomputational Engineering (BCE) degree program, a new program within the Fischell Department of Bioengineering. The Lecturer will also be responsible for advising undergraduate students and will be expected to contribute in departmental service. A Ph.D. in bioengineering, biomedical
engineering, computer science, computer engineering, or closely related field is preferred; candidates with an MS and four or more years of experience in the field will also be considered. A record of outstanding teaching is also preferred. This non-tenure-track position will come with a competitive salary, full benefits package, and opportunities for professional growth.

The Biocomputational Engineering Degree program is set to launch Fall 2021 at the Universities at Shady Grove campus, Rockville, MD.

The BCE degree program admits transfer students that have completed an Associate’s Degree/60 credits in Engineering or a closely related STEM field. Instruction for the remaining 60 credits required to earn a BS degree will take place within the newly-constructed Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Educational Facility (BSE) on the Shady Grove Campus. The BSE is a six-level, 220,000 square foot LEED Platinum certified facility equipped with world-class research and educational facilities. The building features state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, active learning classrooms, and product design spaces for student research. More information can be found at: biocomp.umd.edu/
