The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering is soliciting applications for two tenure-track faculty positions, one in chemical catalysis and one in biocatalysis, at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level to join 19 collegial, supportive, and diverse faculty. The candidate will have the opportunity to directly engage in significant interdisciplinary collaborations including the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals (http://www.cbirc.iastate.edu) and the Bioeconomy Institute (http://www.biorenew.iastate.edu). Responsibilities will include training of graduate students as well as undergraduate education and service activities.

The chemical catalysis search seeks candidates in the areas of catalysis or catalytic materials synthesis. Interest in converting biorenewable molecules is highly desirable. Applications must be submitted electronically to vacancy 110555 (https://www.iastatejobs.com/applicants/jsp/shared/position/JobDetails_css.jsp?postingId=373651). Questions about this position should be addressed to Professor Kurt Hebert (krhebert@iastate.edu, 515 294 6763).

The biocatalysis search seeks candidates who are interested in the use of biological or integrated chemical and biological processing routes for conversions of biorenewable feedstocks to chemicals. Applications must be submitted electronically to vacancy 110556 (https://www.iastatejobs.com/applicants/jsp/shared/position/JobDetails_css.jsp?postingId=373635). If you have questions regarding this vacancy, please contact Professor Charles Glatz (cglatz@iastate.edu, 515 294 8472).

Iowa State University and the College of Engineering are invested in increasing the participation of those traditionally under-represented among engineering faculty. In this we benefit from funding from NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation, Innovation Through Institutional Integration and Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate.
