Award Description: The Center for Nanoscale Materials and Biointegration (CNMB) was formally approved by the University of Alabama Board of Trustees in February 2006 as an interdisciplinary research and student-training center focusing (i) on the synthesis and characterization of nanoscale materials and structures that have potential biomedical applicability and (ii) on the integration of these nano-materials and -structures into practical biomedical devices and technologies. By bringing together researchers and faculty from the basic sciences and materials departments with those from the biomedical and health professions, the Center is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of biomaterials research and nanotechnology development for improving human health. Moreover, the research and training programs of the Center not only fit within the National Nanotechnology Initiative which has multi-funding agency support, but also the NIH Roadmap initiative in Nanomedicine. In addition, the research and discoveries from the Center have significant commercial appeal to biotechnology companies and the CNMB faculty members have a successful track record of commercializing nanotechnology. We propose hiring of two new faculty members in Nanoscale Sciences for Biomedical Research. The first faculty hire will be in the area of ¿Nanoscale Therapeutics and Biomedical Imaging¿ and the second faculty hire will be recruited in the ¿Micro- and Nano-Electro Mechanical Systems for Biomedical Applications (BioMEMS/NEMS)¿ area. The new faculty hires will utilize the core facilities supported by CNMB, Institute of Oral Health Research, and the Pulmonary Injury and Repair Center in the School of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. These new faculty hires will strengthen our NIBIB supported pre-doctoral training program entitled Nanotechnology in Biosensors and Bioengineering.
Project Description: 'same as above'
Jobs Summary: We plan to hire two new tenure-track faculty members at an assistant professor level under this NIH P-30 program. One faculty-hire would be in the Department of Physics and the second faculty hire would be in the Department of Chemistry in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at UAB. The faculty recruitment process has started and we have placed ads in various professional journals and other publications of the professional societies. (Total jobs reported: 0)
