Faculty Position
Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering
Washington University in St. Louis

The School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS, http://engineering.wustl.edu) at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications and nominations for tenured or tenure-track faculty positions at all levels (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor) in the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering (EECE, http://www.eece.wustl.edu). Joint appointments with other departments are also possible.

The faculty search is focused on two areas of emphasis.

1) Solar Energy, Energy Storage, Catalysis, and Chemical Reaction Engineering: Applications are encouraged from candidates with experimental as well as modeling expertise and at multiple scales from molecular-scale investigations to systems-level demonstration. Of particular interest are researchers with expertise in electrochemical engineering as it relates to solar energy conversion, cost-effective energy storage technologies for transportation, grid, and off-grid applications, and integration with other renewable energy systems.

2) Engineered Aquatic Processes: Candidates are especially sought in the areas of environmental biotechnology, environmental transport processes, and advanced water treatment processes. Environmental biotechnology researchers will benefit from existing department and university strengths in environmental chemistry and the life sciences. Reactive transport modeling can contribute to projects on carbon sequestration, water reuse, and remediation. Advanced water treatment processes involving water reuse and the energy-water nexus are of particular interest.

Candidates should have an earned Ph.D. in chemical engineering, environmental engineering, or a related engineering discipline. New faculty will be expected to build and maintain a strong externally-supported research program, teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels, interact with other researchers in the School of Engineering and throughout the university, and participate in department and university service. Candidates for senior-level appointments (Associate or Full Professor) must have a strong record of achievement in research and teaching. The career development of new hires can benefit from participation in school-wide and university-wide initiatives on energy and the environment that include the International Center for Advanced Renewable Energy and Sustainability (http://i-cares.wustl.edu), McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environment Partnership (http://mageep.wustl.edu), Institute for Public Health (http://publichealth.wustl.edu), and Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (http://imse.wustl.edu). The EECE Department is a participant in research centers related to solar energy (http://www.parc.wustl.edu, http://www.seriius.org).

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests (combined not to exceed 5 pages), and contact information for at least three references through Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5924. Questions regarding the process can be directed to the search committee chair Dr. Daniel Giammar (giammar@wustl.edu).

Applications will be considered until the position is filled, but priority will be given to those received by November 16, 2015. Women and members of groups under-represented in engineering are encouraged to apply. Washington University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer, and invites applications from all qualified candidates. Employment eligibility verification will be required upon employment.

Founded in 1853, Washington University is a medium-sized, independent research university dedicated to challenging its faculty and students to seek new knowledge and greater understanding of an ever changing, multi-cultural world. The university is counted among the world's leaders in teaching and research and draws students (with over 12,000 full-time students) and faculty to St. Louis from all 50 states and from more than 100 nations.
