Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering (CHE) invites applications for multiple tenure track faculty positions in chemical engineering with a focus on energy and materials. Candidates with interests in one or more of the following areas are preferred:

• fossil resource utilization
• alternative energy sources/processes
• catalysis
• polymer science
• advanced materials synthesis and applications

Applicants will be considered at all faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor). An earned Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a closely related discipline is required. Successful candidates are expected to develop a vigorous, extramurally funded research pro¬gram, build effective collaborations, and are expected to teach traditional chemical engineering and specialty courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

West Virginia University (http://www.wvu.edu) is a compre¬hensive land grant research institution enrolling 30,000 students in 113 degree programs, including engineering, law and health sciences.
