The Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey invites applications for full-time academic faculty positions in the following fields:
The Institute has state-of-the-art facilities for in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, histology, behavioral neuroscience and psychophysics. Current research mostly focuses on cortical studies with rats and non-invasive work with humans. The Neuroengineering teaching and research track aims to extend to innovative preclinical technologies for the peripheral nervous system, targeting human use in near future.
The Biomechanics Laboratory focusing on Motion and Tissue Biomechanics has been developing novel viewpoints for musculo-skeletal mechanics with major impact on knowledge of normal and pathological muscle function and unknown mechanisms of several treatments. The Laboratory will expand its space and capacity substantially, and is aiming at establishing European excellence in Motion and Sports Biomechanics, in vivo Muscle Mechanics and Rehabilitation.
The emphasis and long-term vision is on medical device design and development, calibration and maintenance of medical devices, medical device administration. This involves basic research in implantable medical device design and development, medical robotics, in vitro diagnostic test kit development and MEMS based biosensor design.
The Biophotonics Laboratory focuses on, and excels in medical laser applications including optical characterization, photobiomodulation, surgical use of lasers, laser welding and tissue soldering, laser applications in dentistry, photodynamic therapy along with histopathology, tissue mechanics and cell culture.
The candidates with strong research track records are expected to bring in their own research interests and computational/experimental/translational expertise to the Institute. The ideal candidate is one who will play a major role in strengthening and expanding the current research priorities indicated and establishing solid synergies across different laboratories of the Institute. Particularly relevant research actions will be those that grow towards translational developments with impact not only in science but also in industry. All faculty members are expected to establish a funded research program. Additionally, they are required to teach graduate courses and supervise graduate students towards their MSc and PhD degrees.
Bogazici University is among the top Turkish Universities with major international credibility and offers privileged employment opportunities for international outstanding academics. The Institute of Biomedical Engineering is a graduate academic unit that leads the field in the country. Research and development is central to the Institute.
Applicants, please contact Dr. Can A. Yucesoy (email@example.com), the Director of the Institute. Please include your CV with two reference persons indicated and statements of research and teaching.
