The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of
Washington invites applications or nominations for a full-time
tenure-track faculty position (9-month service period) to begin as
early as September 1, 2022. The Department is seeking candidates at
the level of Assistant Professor.
The successful candidate will be expected to build a world class
experimental, theoretical or computational research program in
any area of chemical engineering, especially in the areas of
polymer science and engineering, colloids or other areas of soft
matter that complement our existing strengths.
New hires will join a strong existing network of faculty who are
pioneering this field within the College of Engineering, School of
Medicine, and College of Arts and Sciences. The primary
appointment and teaching responsibilities for this hire will be in
chemical engineering, but adjunct/affiliate appointments in other
relevant departments/institutions will be encouraged.
The successful applicant will be expected to provide innovative,
high-quality teaching; to develop a high-impact federally funded
research program of international repute; develop graduate
courses in their areas of expertise and to contribute to the goals
and missions of the department, college, and university.
The successful applicant will be expected to create innovative
and high-quality research and teaching programs that
contribute to an inclusive and equitable campus environment.
UW has a culture of inter-departmental and cross-college
collaborations, as well as close relationships with regional
institutes, clinics, and industry partners. The University of
Washington is a leader in clean energy (http://cei.washington.edu),
molecular engineering and sciences (http://www.moles.washington.edu),
nano-engineered systems (http://www.nano.uw.edu), medicine
advancing data sciences across all disciplines (http://escience.washington.edu).
Our department offers a highly collegial and collaborative
culture, with broad interdisciplinary research ties across campus.
We are building a culturally diverse faculty and encourage
applications from women and minority candidates, individuals with
disabilities, and people from other underrepresented or minoritized
groups. We look forward to learning how the applicant's values,
experiences, or future plans for teaching, research, and service
would support our commitment to diversity, equity, and
Chemical Engineering plays a leadership role in the development
of educational and research programs in all of these areas.
The department currently has a core group of 20 research, lecturer,
and tenure track-track faculty, 14 joint and adjunct faculty, and
approximately 190 undergraduate, 115 graduate and 15 postdoctoral
