Lecturer In Chemical Engineering (open rank)

The Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering is seeking applications for a teaching position (Lecturer) to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the area of Chemical Engineering. This is a full- time, benefits eligible faculty position on the non-tenure track. The USC Viterbi School is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and welcomes applications from women, persons from underrepresented minority groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. We are interested in exceptional candidates at all levels.

Competitive candidates will have the training and experience necessary to teach effectively in a highly ranked Chemical Engineering department that advances undergraduate students through an accredited BS degree program and graduate students enrolled in MS and PhD programs. While we are interested in candidates with backgrounds in all areas of Chemical Engineering, we are particularly interested in candidates with a solid background in Thermodynamics, Fluid Flow and Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Transport Phenomena, Separation Processes, Laboratories for Unit Operations Process Dynamics and Controls, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Chemical Plant Design, Process Dynamics and Control.

The position is available August 16, 2019. This is primarily a teaching position; all candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching. Lecturers spend the majority of time on teaching and teaching-related duties, with reduced obligation for research and University service. Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field. While we seek applications at the level of Lecturer, in exceptional cases, applicants with significant teaching experience may also be considered for a commensurate higher level (e.g., Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor of the Practice, Professor of the Practice).

Cover letter describing applicant’s background, area(s) of specialization and teaching experience;
Detailed curriculum vitae;
Statement of teaching interests and philosophy;
