Arizona State University: Office of the University Provost Tempe: Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering: School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering


Tempe Campus - Arizona State University

Open Date

Oct 05, 2023


The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering (SBHSE) and School of Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy (SEMTE) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for up to 2 postdoctoral scholar positions in Engineering for Regenerative Medicine and Biomaterials Innovation.

SBHSE and SEMTE are a part of the Fulton Schools of Engineering. A rich regenerative medicine and materials engineering research community spans across SBHSE and SEMTE, thereby facilitating a broader post-doctoral research community consisting of internal research seminar series, external research seminars and networking with the biomaterials community, and writing groups. We also leverage interaction and engagement with additional Schools (i.e., School of Life Sciences, College of Health Solutions) and strategic clinical partners (i.e., Mayo Clinic – Center for Regenerative Medicine) to enhance training in regenerative medicine.

The postdoctoral scholars selected will join a cohort of 10-15 other postdoctoral scholars at ASU as part of the Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The goal of the program is to support the career development of outstanding Ph.D. recipients with great potential for advancing the ASU Charter into a future tenure track appointment at ASU.

The program seeks applicants whose professional preparedness, experience, and accomplishments are informed by experiences working with and within groups historically underrepresented or underserved in higher education in the United States. Where pools of qualified applicants are strong, priority will be given to applicants who demonstrate, through prior actions and achievements, intentional and actioned commitment to inclusive excellence. Examples of such contributions are research, teaching, mentorship, service, or creative activity focused on empowering underserved populations that increases equitable access and inclusion in fields where historically excluded populations are underrepresented.

SBHSE and SEMTE have committed to providing individualized mentorship and career development to ensure each candidate is well prepared to succeed in a future tenure track appointment. Fellows will identify a primary mentor among SBHSE and SEMTE faculty and assemble a mentor team to provide robust support and career development necessary for a successful transition to a tenure-track faculty position. Career development and community building will also occur through programmatic support at the ASU Graduate College’s Postdoctoral Affairs Office.
