We Stand in Solidarity Against Racism

The Department of Bioengineering stands in solidarity with our students, staff and faculty against social injustice and acts of racism. We are shocked and saddened by the recent, brutal deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Nina Pop, and others. Like many members of our community, we are frustrated that these deaths are only the most recent manifestations of long-standing racial inequality in this country. 
The Department supports the call to action made by the Bourns College of Engineering.
•    We acknowledge that systemic racism permeates and poisons all levels of academia. 
•    We affirm that the Department has zero tolerance for racism, institutional bias or acts of violence against Black members of our community. 
•    We are committed to supporting Black students and combating the bias and inequity they face. 
•    We are committed to critically examining our recruitment and retention efforts to better support Black students, faculty and staff. 
We would also like to take this moment to recognize the essential contributions made every day by Black students, faculty and staff. They are part of the Bioengineering family, and the department would not be as strong today without their efforts.

Our graduate program is a gender-balanced blend of US and international students, with two-thirds of the PhD students being domestic, and of those, one-fourth are underrepresented minorities. The BS degree program in Bioengineering is fully accredited by ABET since 2011. 
Full Consideration will be given to applications received by December 21, 2018.  Applications will continue to be received until the positions are filled. A doctoral degree in a relevant engineering discipline or closely related field is required at the start of service. Candidates are expected to develop externally-funded research programs.
