Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Chemical 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 earliest start date of September 1, 2023.

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 newly renovated laboratory space in the heart of Brooklyn. The Department is now eagerly looking for two additional colleagues to join the newly created Sustainable Engineering Initiative with the goal of establishing 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 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 focus on approaches that span multiple length and time scales including: density functional theory, molecular dynamics, continuum modeling, process design and optimization, system level technoeconomic 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.  

Application instructions and more information

We will review applications beginning on October 1, 2022 and will continue until we fill the positions. We encourage early submissions of applications.


Teaching Faculty Position in Organic Chemistry

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for a full time, non-tenured, renewable faculty position in Chemistry at the level of Industry Assistant Professor with a start date of January 2, 2023 or September 1, 2023.

An Industry Professor's primary roles are teaching, mentoring, and educational innovation and the position may also entail some administrative work and outreach. We invite applicants for an Industry Professor position whose main duties will include coordinating and teaching organic chemistry laboratory courses. The successful candidate may also be expected to teach introductory chemistry courses or labs, depending on departmental needs. The typical teaching load is 4-5 lab sections per semester or three lab sections and one lecture course per academic semester in addition to the lab coordination duties.

Application instructions and more information

We will review applications beginning on August 1, 2022 and will continue until we fill the position. We encourage you to submit early.
