School of Engineering 
Computational science at the quantum level for catalysis and materials

The School of Engineering at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the field of computational science at the quantum level for heterogeneous and electro-catalysis and materials. Applicants are expected to have earned a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, or related disciplines. Priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate's work over any particular specialization area or department affiliation.

The successful candidate is expected to develop a world-class research program within a stimulating interdisciplinary environment and demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. We seek applicants with expertise in materials and chemical/physical processes for applications such as catalysis and energy, with research that focuses on computational approaches at the quantum level, i.e. simulations at atomic and molecular scales. An ideal candidate would work well in teams with other scientists and engineers at Stanford and at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to achieve breakthrough results relevant to new technologies in the areas of catalysis, materials, and energy, with promise of translation to scaled-up practice.

The appointment of the successful candidate is envisioned to be in one of the departments of Chemical Engineering or Materials Science and Engineering, although a joint appointment with these or other departments in the School of Engineering will also be considered, as well as possibilities with the Photon Science Faculty at SLAC.

Candidates should apply online at The application website may also be reached via the webpages for the Department of Chemical Engineering (, the Department of Materials Science & Engineering (, or the Stanford University School of Engineering ( Applications are due by November 15, 2018, but we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled. Applications should include a research and teaching plan (not to exceed five pages), a detailed resume including a publications list, and the names and addresses of three references. Questions may be directed to search administration at
