The Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin seeks outstanding applicants for tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level.
A Ph.D. is required and applicants must have an outstanding record of research accomplishments and a strong interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Candidates with research and teaching interests in all areas relevant to the field of chemical engineering will be considered.
There are two potential faculty positions. For the first position, researchers with interests in the areas of energy sciences, materials, polymers and catalysis areas are particularly encouraged to apply. The second position is broadly in the area of nanomanufacturing, and the faculty candidate is expected to participate and complement the expertise in the newly funded Engineering Research Center on Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies (NASCENT) which will develop innovative nanomanufacturing, nanosculpting and nanometrology systems that could lead to versatile mobile computing devices such as wearable sensors, foldable laptops and rollable batteries.
Applications from women and minorities are especially encouraged. A successful candidate is expected to teach chemical engineering undergraduate and graduate courses, develop a sponsored research program, collaborate with other faculty, and be involved in service to the university and the profession.
To apply: Interested persons should submit (in electronic form as a single PDF document): a detailed curriculum vitae including academic and professional experience; statements regarding their teaching philosophy and research plans; a list of peer reviewed publications and other technical papers; and the names, addresses and telephone numbers of three or more references.
