Faculty Position
School of Chemical Engineering
Oklahoma State University

The School of Chemical Engineering seeks nominations and applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor. Candidates shall have an earned doctorate in Chemical Engineering or closely related area and display a strong interest in undergraduate and graduate education. The applicant will build a sustainable research program in an area that augments the OSU research portfolio and has strong potential to attract extramural funding. Industrial experience in Chemical Engineering is considered an asset.

Our thirteen faculty members instruct 300 undergraduates with an emphasis on contemporary industrial practice and focus on scientific fundamentals; as such, they are well-prepared for both careers in industry and graduate education. Currently, 52 graduate students are investigating a broad range of topics in our comprehensive MS and PhD program. Strengths in graduate education and research include biomedical engineering, process engineering (design, modeling, simulation, optimization, and control), thermodynamics and molecular design of chemicals, materials, and separations. The School enjoys strong support from alumni, friends and industry, providing seven endowed chairs and professorships, faculty development endowments, and numerous research and educational partnerships. For more information about the school and its successes, please visit http://www.che.okstate.edu.

Applicants should submit electronically (i) a curriculum vita, (ii) a one-page statement of teaching interests and goals, (iii) a one-page statement of research interests and goals, (iv) a one-page cover letter, and (v) three recommendation letters sent directly by the references. Screening of applicants will begin December 1, 2012 and continue until the position is filled, contingent on available funding. Send applications or nominations to ChEFacultySearch@okstate.edu
