Open Tenure-Track Positions in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for two tenure track positions, open rank, in Chemical Engineering, with the earliest start date of September 1, 2024.

The CBE Department is undergoing major growth and rejuvenation, having hired six new senior and junior faculty in the last six years and moving into a newly renovated laboratory space in the heart of Brooklyn. The Department is now eagerly seeking two additional colleagues to join the newly created Sustainable Engineering Initiative to establish a leading ecosystem centered on education, research, and translation of technologies to Avoid, Mitigate, Remediate, and Adapt to Climate Change and Environmental Pollution.

The CBE Department encourages applications from candidates with an interest in establishing research programs with sustainable engineering applications, with emphasis on, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Computational chemical engineering and materials science research with a focus on approaches that span multiple length and time scales, including density functional theory, molecular dynamics, continuum modeling, process design and optimization, and system-level techno-economic and life-cycle analysis. Eagerness to collaborate with experimental groups is most desirable.
  • Experimental chemical engineering and materials science research on heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis, polymer circularity and upcycling, polymers for applications in chemical separations, water purification, resource recovery from waste streams, or electrochemical conversions. Transdisciplinary and collaborative approaches are encouraged.
