The Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering at The University of Alabama invites applications for a lecturer position.

LECTURER POSITION. Exceptional applicants are sought that have a passion for teaching and curriculum development across the field of chemical engineering. UA’s B.S. degree program attracts outstanding students from across the USA and internationally with an average ACT score of over 31. Seventy percent of the students majoring in chemical engineering are also members of UA’s Honors College. Primary duties of the successful candidate will include teaching in core lecture classes, unit operations laboratory and/or senior design courses, as well as appropriate service roles in the department. Candidates will be considered for appointment at the rank of Lecturer, joining a department of dedicated professors (http://che.eng.ua.edu/people). This is a three-year non-tenure track position subject to annual renewal.

Applicants for the lecturer position must have an earned master’s degree (M.S., with at least 18 hours of graduate coursework in chemical engineering) or doctorate (Ph.D.) in chemical engineering or a closely related field. Experience in the chemical process industry or engineering design is also desirable. The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate a high performance level in the classroom or laboratory, actively engage students, and take a leadership role in curricular matters. Applications for the lecturer position must be submitted electronically (requisition #: 0810436) and should consist of a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching interests and experience, and contact information for at least three references.

Applications will be accepted and reviewed continuously until the position is filled with a possible start date as early as January 2017. Apply online at facultyjobs.ua.edu. Questions about the position can be directed to AlabamaChBESearch@eng.ua.edu.
