The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for two tenure track positions, open rank, in Chemical Engineering, with the earliest start date of September 1, 2024.


The CBE Department is undergoing major growth and rejuvenation, having hired six new senior and junior faculty in the last six years and moving into a newly renovated laboratory space in the heart of Brooklyn. The Department is now eagerly seeking two additional colleagues to join the newly created Sustainable Engineering Initiative to establish a leading ecosystem centered on education, research, and translation of technologies to Avoid, Mitigate, Remediate, and Adapt to Climate Change and Environmental Pollution.




The CBE Department encourages applications from candidates with an interest in establishing research programs with sustainable engineering applications, with emphasis on, but not limited to, the following areas:


  • Computational chemical engineering and materials science research with a focus on approaches that span multiple length and time scales, including density functional theory, molecular dynamics, continuum modeling, process design and optimization, and system-level techno-economic and life-cycle analysis. Eagerness to collaborate with experimental groups is most desirable.
  • Experimental chemical engineering and materials science research on heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis, polymer circularity and upcycling, polymers for applications in chemical separations, water purification, resource recovery from waste streams, or electrochemical conversions. Transdisciplinary and collaborative approaches are encouraged.  

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, materials science, environmental engineering, or a related discipline. A distinguished record of scholarship, leadership, curricular innovation, entrepreneurship, and an excellent funding record are desired from senior candidates, while junior candidates must demonstrate clear potential to achieve the same. All candidates must demonstrate or show potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring.


Application Instructions

Please submit the following materials electronically at:

  • Cover letter
  • Current CV
  • Research Statement not to exceed 4 pages, including references
  • Teaching statement not to exceed 3 pages, including references
  • A statement of your experience with or knowledge of inclusion, diversity, equity, and belonging  efforts and your plans for incorporating them into your teaching, research, mentoring, and service.
  • Recent teaching evaluations (if available)
  • Names and contact information for three references.

We strongly encourage interested candidates to apply by October 1st, 2023. The review of applicants will continue until we fill the positions. For any questions, please contact: Eray Aydil
