The College of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) is seeking to build on our strengths in research that intersects human health by making multiple hires at all levels. Examples of research areas include but are not limited to: ethical AI for healthcare data, community centered data science to understand health inequities, AI analysis of biomedical images for screening and diagnosis, user inspired design for rehabilitation engineering, work to understand the relationship between air quality and health inequities, and development of novel engineered therapeutics. There are many exciting areas at the intersection of health, engineering, and computing, and we are looking forward to seeing applications from candidates interested in these intersectional research areas. As part of the interview process, candidates will have the opportunity to meet with departments and select the department where they feel they will be most successful.
At UMBC, we advance knowledge, economic prosperity, and social justice by welcoming and inspiring inquisitive minds from all backgrounds. We are a dynamic public research university integrating teaching, research, and service to benefit the citizens of Maryland. We offer academically talented students a strong undergraduate foundation that prepares them for graduate and professional study, entry into the workforce, and community service and leadership. At the graduate level, we emphasize science, engineering, information technology, human services, and public policy. Additionally, we contribute to the economic development of the State and the region through entrepreneurial initiatives, workforce training, K-16 partnerships, and technology commercialization in collaboration with public agencies and the corporate community. UMBC is located near Johns Hopkins Medical School, the University of Maryland Medical School, NIH, NIST, and DoD medical research command at Ft. Detrick. There are phenomenal opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across universities as well as government research labs and foundations. The HHMI Janelia Research Campus is less than an hour from UMBC.
The College of Engineering and Information Technology has four departments: Information Systems, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemical, Biochemical, and Environmental Engineering. The College is a collaborative environment where faculty are encouraged and supported to collaborate across disciplines both at UMBC and with researchers in other institutions. Community engaged research is also strongly supported both by the College and by the Shriver Center that for over 30 years has been dedicated to community connections and engagement.
