Faculty Position in the Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering at Washington State University

The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering (ChEBE) at Washington State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. The position will be based at the Pullman campus. Successful candidates must hold a doctorate in bioengineering, chemical engineering, or a closely related discipline. Applications are especially encouraged from individuals with a strong record of publication in high impact, peer-refereed and archival journals and evidence for potential to establish an externally funded research program. Applicants with research interests in an area closely related to our current strengths in biomolecular and cellular engineering are encouraged. Preference will be given to researchers working in the fields of biofilm engineering, microbe-host interactions, metabolic engineering, and cellular and molecular research underlying the thin filament regulation of striated muscle contraction.

The Voiland School currently has 300 undergraduate students, 70 graduate students, of whom 61 are PhD students, and 16 faculty. During fiscal year 2012, faculty in the school expended extramurally sponsored funds totaling $4.11 million from NSF, DOE, DOD, NIH, ONR and industry. Faculty also created two new companies from technologies developed as a part of their research. During the next year, we plan to add three additional faculty members, including the individual who will be hired into this position, one in the area of catalysis and one distinguished full professor. Faculty in the Voiland School are conducting interdisciplinary research and have strong interactions with College of Veterinary Medicine, WSU’s newly established School for Global Animal Health, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, as well as other departments in the university. A successful candidate for this position is expected to establish and maintain a funded, innovative and nationally recognized research program, collaborate with others within the School, the University, or other organizations and develop and teach graduate and undergraduate core and elective courses. We are looking for candidates with strong leadership potential, who have exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, and are committed to diversifying the student body.

This position is part of WSU’s priority to build a diverse faculty and, as such, female and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. WSU has “faculty friendly” policies including partner accommodation, and on-site childcare availability.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of application, a detailed curriculum vitae, names and contact information of four references, a statement of research plans and a statement of teaching interests and philosophy online at: www.wsujobs.com/applicants/central?quickFind=57680 The letter should be addressed to Dr. Nehal I. Abu-Lail, Chair Search Committee, The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, Washington State University. Only online applications will be considered.

Screening of application materials will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Preferred starting date of this new position is August 15, 2013.

Washington State University is an EEO/AA/ADA educator and employer. Protected group members are encouraged to apply. WSU employs only U.S citizens and lawfully authorized non-U.S. Citizens.
