Open Rank Faculty Position
The Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of New Mexico
(UNM) is seeking applicants for two open-rank faculty positions (hiring level commensurate with
experience). We seek innovative and collaborative researchers and educators in broad areas of
chemical engineering. Applications are particularly encouraged in energy-, bio- and
materials-related areas. The successful candidate will have the ability to develop a high- impact
independent research program that cuts across disciplines, departments, and research centers, and
the dedication to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Our faculty actively collaborate with federally funded research centers, a nationally ranked School
of Medicine, and nearby laboratories (Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory,
and Air Force Research Laboratory). The UNM Lobo Rainforest (https://rainforest.unm.edu/) provides
an entrepreneurial ecosystem that includes STC.UNM (https://stc.unm.edu/), innovation Academy
(https://innovationacademy.unm.edu/), and other elements that translate research to market.
Qualified candidates will have earned a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering or a related
discipline by the time of appointment. Preferred candidates should have the ability and dedication
to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching activities, the ability to contribute to
graduate education and professional development within the interdisciplinary chemical engineering
graduate program. Applicants should also have evidence of potential for developing a nationally and
internationally recognized research program, and an established research program with national and
international recognition is expected at the senior level. All applicants should have a
demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and student success, as well as working
with broadly diverse communities.
For best consideration, applicants must submit an application using UNMJobs (web link here)
applications include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, description of proposed research, statement
of teaching plans, list of at least three professional references, and highlight summary
