The Department of Chemical Engineering at Lehigh University seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor with a preferred starting date of August 2014 or sooner. We are looking for exceptional candidates with research interests in Shale Gas and Hydrocarbon Processing that cut across one or more disciplines related, but not limited, to catalysis, reaction engineering, separations, and process integration. The position will be closely aligned with a campus level initiative involving multiple departments to build technical expertise to exploit the economic benefits of producing value-added chemicals and liquid fuels from shale gas and other hydrocarbons.

The campus has strong interdisciplinary and interdepartmental groups in catalysis, materials, energy technologies, and nanotechnology with which the candidate can interact. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a nationally recognized research program and to engage in enthusiastic teaching of undergraduate and graduate students in chemical engineering. Lehigh University is one of seven recipients in 2010 of an NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Grant to enhance recruitment, retention, and the advancement of women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields at Lehigh.

Candidates should submit electronically a cover letter highlighting their main achievements, a curriculum vitae, a detailed statement of research and teaching plans, and the names and addresses of four (4) references using the on-line application form at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3191. Inquiries should be addressed to: Professor Steven McIntosh (chesearch@lehigh.edu), Chair of the Shale Gas Search Committee, Department of Chemical Engineering, Lehigh University. Review of applications will begin immediately, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
