Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Open until filled
Position Start Date
Aug. 15, 2016
Manufacturing & Quality Engineering
Bioengineering (all Bio-related fields)
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (http://engineering.unl.edu/chme) invites applications for one or more positions at the rank of assistant or associate professor.
The UNL College of Engineering is undergoing an exciting period of significant growth, related in part to the University joining the Big Ten Conference in 2011. The College anticipates hiring 100 new faculty members in the next five years. Three research areas of emphasis are: A) biomedical, with opportunities to build collaborations and partnerships with the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Creighton University Medical Center, B) manufacturing science and engineering, including the manufacture of equipment, devices and components, and C) national defense through the National Strategic Research Institute at the University of Nebraska, including research areas such as combating weapons of mass destruction. In addition to these, priority areas for research include energy, nanoengineering, and computational approaches to solving engineering problems.
Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a closely related field, and at least one degree (B.S., M.S. or Ph.D) in chemical engineering. Applicants should have a record of strong scholarly achievement and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. Candidates must have the potential to establish a strong externally funded research program. Preferred candidates demonstrate strong potential in the priority area(s) of emphasis: Biomedical, Manufacturing, National Defense, Energy, Nanoengineering and Computational approaches to solving engineering problems.
Opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska include many state- and federally-funded research centers and programs. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has an outstanding infrastructure for conducting research, including several central facilities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Applications must be submitted via http://employment.unl.edu (requisition #F_150199). Complete applications will include a cover letter (with specialty and position level clearly stated), CV, research and teaching statements (4 pages total), and a list of three references. Review of application materials will begin October 15 and continue until the position is filled.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative action, equal opportunity, work-life balance, and dual careers. See http://www.unl.edu/equity/notice-nondiscrimination.
