Job Details

The UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) ( is seeking to fill a 9-month tenure-track position in Rehabilitation Engineering at the rank of Associate or Assistant Professor.

The Rehabilitation Engineering track of our department involves basic research in human neuromechanics, development and assessment of advanced technologies to restore sensorimotor function in individuals with physical disabilities, and translation of novel technologies to clinics and end users. Our interests include, but are not limited to prosthetics and orthotics, wearable technologies, virtual reality, neuromotor rehabilitation, neural engineering, biomechanics, and computer modeling.

We encourage candidates conducting basic and applied research in the areas of: (1) biodynamics of human locomotion, (2) wearable robotics and neuroprosthetics, (3) motor control and motor learning focused on human-machine interactions, and (4) innovative therapeutic or assistive technologies with the potential to transform rehabilitation practice from the clinic to the community.

Founded in 2003, the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering is a unique collaboration between North Carolina’s two flagship universities: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and North Carolina State University (NC State). The nationally ranked UNC Hospitals and School of Medicine at UNC-CH provides an excellent clinical environment for interactions and translation, while the College of Engineering at NC State, one of the finest engineering and computer science schools in the world, offers state-of-the-art facilities for students and faculty engaged in vital areas of research and technology transfer.

In addition to the resources of the Joint Department, the Closed-Loop Engineering for Advanced Rehabilitation (CLEAR) Core ( the former Rehabilitation Engineering Core, Human Movement Science Program at UNC-CH (, the Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) at UNC-CH, the NSF ERC ASSIST Center at NC State, along with the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine provide excellent opportunities for Rehabilitation Engineering faculty to develop multidisciplinary and translational collaborations.



The qualified candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline. Successful applicants will have already established a highly competitive independent research program, or will otherwise possess the clear potential to do so. The candidate must have the ability to collaborate with basic researchers and/or clinical investigators. Candidates will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate student education, particularly in the areas of rehabilitation engineering, biomedical instrumentation, and neural engineering.

The selected candidate will have a primary appointment at NC State University, with tenure home in the College of Engineering. Laboratory space will be allocated at NC State on the Centennial Campus, where most of the engineering departments, including Biomedical Engineering, reside. The selected candidate will have full rights and privileges at both NC State and UNC-CH.

Women, members of minority groups, and people with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.
North Carolina State University is an equal opportunity employer.
