Faculty Position - Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

The University of Delaware

Newark, Delaware

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware invites applications for a tenure-track open-rank Professor position.  The University of Delaware combines a rich history in engineering with a commitment to undergraduate education and scholarly excellence. The University ranks among the top 100 universities in federal R&D support for science and engineering, with external funding exceeding $200 million annually. Supported by state-of-the-art facilities, research is conducted across all seven colleges and numerous interdisciplinary institutes and centers. The main campus in Newark, Delaware, provides the amenities of a vibrant college town with convenient access to the major cities of the East Coast. The newly opened 194,000-square-foot Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory greatly expands opportunities and resources for interdisciplinary research and active learning, and the recently acquired 272-acre Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) campus offers additional opportunities for academic and commercial collaborative research and development.

REQUIREMENTS: Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related field.

DUTIES: The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering seeks faculty candidates to develop and lead a vigorous and nationally recognized research program; teach and advise students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and participate in and contribute to the departmental and larger professional community. While applications in all research areas will be considered, we particularly seek applicants with expertise in biopharmaceutical manufacturing, bioinformatics, and systems design and optimization, especially those that synergize with the new manufacturing excellence centers, NIIMBL and RAPID. We seek candidates that will contribute, through high quality research and teaching, to improve our department’s national standing and visibility, considering that our program has been ranked among the ten leading chemical engineering programs in the country for several decades. Current research includes groundbreaking efforts in many areas of chemical engineering science, including catalysis and reaction engineering, energy, soft matter, biomolecular engineering, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena.

APPLICATION: Please submit a curriculum vitae, a description of research and teaching interests, and the names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of at least 3 references at apply.interfolio.com/44338. Applications will be considered until the position is filled. The curriculum vitae and letters of recommendation will be shared with department faculty.
