The Chemical Engineering Department at Bucknell University invites applications for an open-rank, visiting faculty position to begin August 2021. This position is ideal for candidates considering a career in academia with an emphasis on undergraduate education. Visiting faculty would join a top-ranked, highly selective undergraduate chemical engineering department with small class sizes that facilitate close student-faculty interaction in a hands-on, interactive, learning community. The University sponsors a range of developmental activities for its visiting faculty supported by a well-resourced Teaching and Learning Center.

We seek individuals with enthusiasm for teaching and a desire to engage undergraduates in the classroom and laboratory across a broad range of chemical engineering subjects.

A successful candidate must be ABD or have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a closely related engineering discipline at time of appointment. Clear evidence of the potential for teaching excellence is essential, and a strong interest in continued professional development is expected. The candidate should demonstrate a commitment to working successfully with a diverse student body, utilizing inclusive pedagogies, and fostering highly collaborative environments.
