Successful candidates will develop and maintain an active program of externally-funded research, advise and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and contribute broadly to undergraduate and graduate teaching in the Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering. The University values interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches to engineering education. Strong curricular and research ties exist between the engineering departments and the University’s College of Medicine, and it is expected that the successful candidates will leverage this opportunity. The engineering programs at UVM have seen significant recent growth in undergraduate and graduate student enrollments and research funding, and that growth has accelerated with the introduction of new programs such as the biomedical engineering degrees. To support this growth, the University is undergoing its largest-ever capital project with the construction of the STEM Complex. The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, rated as one of the best small cities in America.
