Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)
Postdoc & Early Career

The Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering (BU BME) invites applications from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, who are Ph.D. students within one year of graduation or postdoctoral fellows and interested in academic careers, to attend a symposium and workshop for emerging scholars in Boston, MA.

This symposium is designed to offer emerging scholars an opportunity to present their work to a diverse audience, network with other researchers in the field, learn about the academic job-search process and about starting their first faculty job, and become better acquainted with the broader Boston academic community and the opportunities it offers.

Eligible Participants

The symposium encourages applications from individuals with no current affiliation with Boston University, who intend to pursue academic faculty careers and have interests across biomedically related engineering. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, biomechanics and mechanobiology; molecular, cellular, and tissue engineering; neural engineering; systems and synthetic bioengineering; biomaterials; bioimaging; biorobotics; computational bioengineering and modeling; and nanotechnology for biomedical applications. Diversity and inclusion are core values at BU BME, and strong candidates will demonstrate an ability to promote inclusive environments, in which diverse groups of people thrive, and a commitment to promoting diversity across biomedical engineering.

Travel and Funding

All travel expenses, lodging, and meals during the symposium are fully covered. Invited symposiasts will also receive a $200 honorarium.
