Iowa State Seeks Two Chemical Engineering Faculty

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Iowa State University (http://www.cbe.iastate.edu) solicits applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. This person will join 21 collegial, supportive, and diverse faculty. The positions are tenure-track, nine months, full-time, and are proposed to start on August 18, 2014.

All applicants should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a related field. Candidates will be expected to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses, to establish and sustain strong research programs in their area of expertise, and to contribute to departmental and university service activities. Applicants will have demonstrated research accomplishments and the potential for continuing excellence in both research and teaching commensurate with the level of the position. The research area is open. However, applicants that complement and strengthen our existing research programs are especially welcome.

The department has a dynamic research environment that is especially strong in bio-renewables, materials, bioengineering, and computational fluid dynamics and simulation. Many of these programs involve interdisciplinary collaborations across the campus and the strong support of university centers in those areas, including the NSF-funded Center for Biorenewable Chemicals (CBiRC) and the Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory. The department’s research funding for fiscal year 2012 was over $12 million. Iowa State University has 31,000 students (Fall 2012) and is a member of the Association of American Universities. Its campus is considered one of the most beautiful in the U.S. It is located in Ames, Iowa, a city with a 2012 estimated population of 60,000. In 2012 it was named the No. 2 Best College Town, according to the American Institute of Economic Research.
