Stanford University-Assistant or nontenured Associate Professor

The Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University is seeking applicants for a tenure-track faculty position at the junior level (Assistant or nontenured Associate Professor).  Applicants are expected to have earned a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering or related disciplines.

Applicants knowledgeable in the general area of chemical engineering science will be considered. There are several broad areas of interest, including hydrocarbon chemistry, surface reactivity and catalysis, fuel cells, environmental or atmospheric studies, molecular transport processes and mechanics, soft materials physics and chemistry, computation and simulation, biochemical and biomolecular engineering, and nanomaterials processing.   In general,  the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work is a higher priority rather than the sub-area of specialization. Researchers with interests in the applied life sciences, energy sciences, and environmental sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants whose research programs in chemical engineering will involve the development of sophisticated computational and/or mathematical methods may be considered for a joint appointment in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering .

The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate level, to develop advanced graduate courses in a research specialty, as well as to develop a world-class research program with an emphasis on the fundamental physical, chemical, or biological aspects of chemical engineering science.  Applicants should be seeking a stimulating interdisciplinary environment in which to pursue teaching and research.  We anticipate that the faculty members will contribute to and develop leadership roles and interactions among faculty not only in chemical engineering, but also electrical, mechanical, civil and environmental, and material science and engineering in the School of Engineering; in physics, chemistry, and biology in the School of Humanities and Sciences; in the departments and programs in the School of Medicine, as well as bioengineering located in the Schools of Engineering and Medicine, and at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.

Applicants must submit online their curriculum vitae (including research accomplishments, teaching experience, and publications) a transcript of doctoral graduate study, a detailed research and teaching plan, and three references (name and email address).  Applications are due by November 15, 2011, but we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.  Please apply  online on the Stanford Chemical Engineering website

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty.  It welcomes nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions.
