The Chemistry Department at Carnegie Mellon University seeks applicants for a tenure-track faculty member at the level of Assistant Professor in the areas of physical, analytical, or computational chemistry who will contribute to emerging efforts in automated/data-driven science and to existing departmental strengths in environmental, materials, or physical chemistry. Some areas of interest include:  development of analytical techniques for accelerating studies of chemical reactivity; parallelized detection of analytes in reaction mixtures or complex environmental samples; data-driven materials design and testing; and new computational approaches to complex systems, chemical reactions, or the exploration of chemical space. We seek scientists who are eager to join and contribute to a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment that promotes innovative research, education, and service initiatives.

The successful applicant will interface with existing programs, such as materials science for energy applications, environmental science, engineering, and machine learning. Teaching will include core lecture or lab courses in chemistry as well as elective courses in areas related to their research specialization. Selection will be based, in part, on a record of research publications in internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journals, prospects for obtaining extramural funding, and the ability and desire to teach and mentor students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels from a wide range of disciplines, cultures and academic backgrounds.
