Syracuse University- Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor- Biomedical and Chemical Engineering

Syracuse University

The Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering (BMCE) in the College of Engineering at Syracuse University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor, scheduled to begin in the fall of 2012. This position is of vital importance to the College’s strategic plan to expand an interdisciplinary faculty cluster in Energy Studies. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: energy production from abundant materials, design and manufacturing of new energy materials, innovative applications of nanoscale science and engineering to energy production and storage, surface science and catalysis pertinent to chemical and energy transformation, green process engineering and advanced manufacturing, and protein/metabolic engineering for energy-related applications. While outstanding applicants in all areas will be considered, preference will be given to those who possess fundamental expertise and scholarly track records in multiscale modeling and simulation.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or in a closely-related discipline and the potential for excellence in teaching and research. Many opportunities for research collaboration exist within the Department, College, University, and neighboring institutions including the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems, the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute, the Center for Advanced Systems and Engineering (CASE), and the SUNY Upstate Medical University. The Department offers ABET-accredited B.S. degrees as well as M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering and bioengineering.  BMCE currently has 14 full-time faculty members including two new hires made in 2011, approximately 250 undergraduate students, and nearly 90 graduate students with one-half of those pursuing doctoral degrees.

For full consideration applicants must complete an online application ((job #028350) and attach electronically a cover letter, curriculum vita, the names of three references, and brief descriptions of their research and teaching interests.  Applications will be reviewed starting November 1, 2011 until the position is filled. For additional information about this position, contact the chair of the search committee, Professor Lawrence Tavlarides.

Syracuse University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer with a strong commitment to equality of opportunity and a diverse work force. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
