The Chemical Engineering Department at UCL is an internationally renowned department within one of the most prestigious universities in the world. UCL taught the world’s first course on “chemical technology”, in 1882. Established in 1923, the department is one of the oldest Chemical Engineering Departments in the UK.

The successful candidate will be expected to complement research and education in the department, as well as to establish and lead a vigorous externally funded research programme of international standing. The candidate’s research should use innovative fundamental tools to aid in the engineering of new functional materials and processes, showing leadership in facilitating interdisciplinary links, and strengthening Centre efforts and collaborations, as well as initiate new directions that fit the aforementioned strategy. Teaching and administration duties will be allocated within the present departmental degree programmes, which include BEng, MEng, MSc and PhD.

The ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record in research and have teaching experience in chemical engineering or a cognate discipline. A first degree and a PhD in Chemical Engineering or related discipline are required. The candidate will be expected to engage with industrial and other partners to develop our translational research agenda. An important strategic direction of the Department is working at the interfaces with other science and engineering disciplines to support innovation and evidence of this in candidates will be a significant advantage. All appropriate support will be made available to the appointee to incorporate his or her research programme into the Department.
