Endowed Professorship, Thayer School of Engineering and the Dartmouth Cancer Center


Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering, in partnership with the Dartmouth Cancer Center, seeks to fill a distinguished endowed-chair professorship (at full professor rank) in biomedical engineering, with a focus on cancer-related research. An outstanding candidate is sought with interests which include, but are not limited to, artificial intelligence/big data, wearable and/or nanosensor technologies, digital health, digital therapeutics, and/or medical imaging/physics. Candidates whose research might contribute to the Dartmouth Cancer Center Precision Prevention initiative ( research-and-innovation) are of particular interest. The successful candidate will have a doctorate in engineering or related scientific field, have recognized international prominence in the field, and an established record of thought leadership and externally-funded research commensurate with a full-professor endowed-chair appointment. Consideration will be given to candidates who align with Thayer’s core focus and values around human-centered engineering; world class research and innovation; integrated interdisciplinary collaboration; and have a strong interest/track-record in translating research to meet human health needs.


The Thayer School of Engineering is in the midst of a significant expansion of faculty and programs, and this position will join a large and thriving cluster of scholars in cancer-related research involving multiple disciplines and departments at Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Health. The successful candidate will be affiliated with the Dartmouth Cancer Center’s NCI-funded Translational Engineering in Cancer Research Program, which leverages Dartmouth’s strengths in interdisciplinary teaching and learning, biomedical sciences and engineering, to discover solutions to critical cancer-related problems in human health faced by communities and regions across the globe.
