Applications are invited for a full-time Lecturer position starting in August 2022. The Lecturer will serve as primary instructor of undergraduate bioengineering courses, including laboratory courses. 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 or closely related field is required. A record of outstanding teaching is also required, and teaching experience beyond the graduate teaching assistant level is preferred.
This non-tenure-track position will come with a competitive salary, full benefits package, and opportunities for professional growth.
Part-Time Adjunct Lecturers
Postdoctoral Research Position: Maisel Lab
The Maisel Lab in the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland, College Park is currently recruiting candidates for an NIH-funded postdoctoral research position.
The Maisel Lab's research integrates materials science, immunology, mucosal barrier physiology, and drug delivery to achieve a long-term research goal to design nanoparticles and in vitro model systems to take advantage of and study the interface between biological barriers and biomaterials. The Maisel Lab is particularly interested in understanding how the lymphatic system responds to physiological and pathological cues at mucosal surfaces, and how the group can take advantage of the natural transport functions of the lymphatics to deliver therapeutics to modulate the immune response.
The available postdoctoral project will involve working on ongoing projects on in vitro model development as well as developing new directions in this area. Particular emphasis will be placed on designing in vitro model systems of lymphatic vessels, mucosal surfaces, and integration of the two for more complex model systems. Ideal candidates should have prior experience with designing in vitro models, particularly using microfluidic systems. Candidates should be independently motivated, collaborative, interested in the using engineering tools to answer biological questions, and have excellent written and oral communication skills, which are demonstrated through their publication and presentation record. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, or a related field.

Postdoctoral Research Position: Kuo Lab
The Kuo Lab in the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland, College Park has multiple openings for postdoctoral researchers. Projects span mechanobiology of embryonic and fetal tendon development; novel therapeutics for adult tendon injuries and disease; tendon tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; interventions for musculoskeletal birth defects; and medical device and diagnostics development.
Compensation for these positions will be based on NIH guidelines, and will include a competitive benefits and retirement package offered by UMD. Postdoctoral researchers are eligble for renewable, annual contracts with the expectation of completing 2–4 years of training. Flexibility to pursue research in personal areas of interest, apply for grants and fellowships, develop independent research thrusts, and build scientific management expertise will be encouraged.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in one of the following disciplines (or a related discipline): biomedical engineering, biomaterials, biomechanics, chemistry, immunology, molecular biology, developmental biology, or cell biology.
Please include "Postdoctoral Application" in the subject line of your email. Positions are open immediately and will remain open until filled. Please email a single PDF file that includes the following: i) cover letter, ii) CV, iii) list of references with contact information, and iv) two first-author manuscripts. Your cover letter should include career goals, expertise, research interests, expectations for the position, and a preferred start date. Please send your application to email@example.com.
Please review the position flyer (PDF) – which contains additional important information – prior to submitting your application.
