Faculty Positions in Biomolecular and Biochemical Engineering for Bioenergy
The Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) are hiring faculty to support a broad initiative in renewable bioenergy. In conjunction with that initiative, we seek applicants for multiple tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in the area of biomolecular and biochemical engineering for bioenergy applications. Areas of interest relevant to bioenergy application include, but are not limited to: biomolecular engineering, synthetic biology, modeling of biological systems and processes, metabolic engineering for non-traditional microorganisms and feedstocks, or other related fields in biotechnology.
We seek applicants who will contribute to our programs and will leverage investments by the University in promoting interdisciplinary teaching and research. These investments include, among others, the Biodesign Institute (https://biodesign.asu.edu/), Lightworks (https://sustainability.asu.edu/lightworks/), and the Global Security Initiative (https://globalsecurity.asu.edu/), along with academic programs across the University. The current openings are intended to broaden our expertise and expand collaborations.
Required qualifications include an earned doctorate in Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, or a related field. Required qualifications also include demonstrated evidence of research capability and commitment to teaching excellence as appropriate to the candidate’s rank. Desired qualifications include a commitment to a collaborative, transdisciplinary approach to research and teaching.
Faculty members are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and undertake service activities within the university, in the professional community and at the national level.
Appointments will be at the assistant, associate or full professor rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments, beginning August 2017. Although the faculty appointment may be in any of the six Fulton Schools of Engineering, the Chemical Engineering program in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy is currently among the most involved in the interest areas of the search.
Review of applications will begin November 17, 2016 and will occur on the 1st and 15th of the month thereafter until the search is closed. To apply, please submit as a single PDF file containing a cover letter, current CV, statements describing research and teaching interests and contact information for three references to email@example.com.
For more information or questions about these positions, please contact the search committee chair Professor David Nielsen (David.R.Nielsen@asu.edu).
