Assistant Professor - The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions. Individuals with all research directions within Chemical Engineering will be considered.
The first position focuses on experimental or computational research in energy-related fields, for example energy storage, catalytic or non-catalytic processes, sustainability, advanced materials, green chemistry, biomanufacturing, and biomolecular engineering. The second position focuses on computational modeling and simulation in any area of chemical engineering, including machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Additional possible research directions include, but are not limited to, reaction engineering, fluid mechanics, separations, and transport processes.
We strongly encourage applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in Chemical Engineering to apply. The department is committed to maintaining an interdisciplinary and collaborative education and research environment.
Minimum Requirements: Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering or a related field, outstanding record of research accomplishments, commitment to excellence in teaching, research and support of diversity and inclusivity in their scholarly activities. Faculty members are expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, contribute significantly to the advancement of basic science and engineering as evidenced by scholarly publications, and develop a nationally and internationally recognized program of sponsored research. Preferred starting date is September 1, 2024.
Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Applications must be submitted
