Multiple Positions (Open Rank)

The School of Engineering at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) invites applicationsfrom highly qualified individuals for multiple full-time, tenure-earning and tenured positions at therank of Assistant, Associate, or full Professor, based on experience and qualifications. Specificresponsibilities include research in neural engineering, teaching, and service. Appointments areavailable in any department in the School appropriate to the candidate’s research and teachinginterests, and joint appointments with the School of Medicine will be considered if appropriate.Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in Engineering or related fields (Computer Science,Mathematics, Physics, or Biology) and have previous research experience in neuroengineering; aproven track record of competitive funding as PI is preferred. To be competitive for a tenuredposition, candidates must have an outstanding vision for independent research and be nationallyrecognized for their scholarship and commitment to education.

Research Areas

Ideal candidates will have a strong record of research and scholarship in neuroengineering.Preference will be given to candidates with active research in one of the following areas:

  1. Neural signal and image analysis that combine discoveries in neural science and data scienceusing machine learning, deep learning and other related approaches.

  2. Theoretical neurophysiology investigations to increase understanding of how electrical signalsare transmitted and processed by neurons and glia in healthy brain tissue, in patients withneurological and neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, essential tremors,epilepsy).

  3. Connection of devices to the human brain or nervous system including biomedical signalprocessing, brain-computer interface (BCI), deep brain stimulation, neuromodulation, translatingbasic research into clinical applications.

Required Qualifications

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in Engineering or related fields (Computer Science,Mathematics, Physics, or Biology) and have previous research experience in neuroengineering.

Preferred Qualifications

A proven track record of competitive funding as PI is preferred.
