The College of Engineering is located at Temple University’s main campus, in the thriving city of Philadelphia – a city at the forefront of science and technology. Philadelphia is home to historic events, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence, music and sporting venues, restaurants, theaters, and clubs. Our teaching, research and learning environment celebrates ethnic and gender diversity, respects experience, and encourages problem solving and innovation.
This makes Temple University’s College of Engineering a great place to start your career. Additionally, Temple University’s Health Sciences Center is home to the College of Public Health, the Kornberg School of Dentistry, Lewis Katz School of Medicine and School of Pharmacy, and offers a dynamic, collaborative environment for both students and professionals. The School of Podiatric Medicine, located in Center City, also has teaching, research, and healthcare facilities at the Health Sciences Center.
Temple University’s College of Engineering is continuing the expansion of its research and education endeavors, including the completely renovated two floors of the engineering building with a total of 25,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research, education, and office space, much of which is occupied by the Department of Bioengineering. Overall, our ABET-accredited program includes an undergraduate student body of 200 and 50 graduate students. The core faculty is comprised of 4 Full Professors, 3 Associate Professors, and 6 Assistant Professors.
At this time, we are hiring a Mid/Senior Level Tenure-Track/Tenured Professor. Full consideration will be given to applications received by November 30, 2021, but the search will remain open until the position is filled.
