General Statement of Duties: +Central Michigan University invites applications for three or more research-intensive tenure-track faculty positions in areas of experimental research related to energy storage and conversion such as batteries, supercapacitors and thermoelectric materials. We expect that one appointment will be at advanced rank (Associate or full Professor) and the others at Assistant Professor. These research-intensive positions offer competitive salaries and start-up packages and will begin in August, 2013. Applicants should have established research programs on some aspect of advanced materials relevant to energy storage and conversion, or possess expertise that will allow them to develop such a program. Those with expertise in areas including, but not limited to, solid-state inorganic synthesis and characterization, chemical engineering, and electrochemistry are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants should be qualified to hold a tenure-track position in one of the relevant departments in the College of Science and Technology (Chemistry, Physics or the School of Engineering and Technology). Successful candidates will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program involving undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, and to participate in the activities of the Science of Advanced Materials Ph.D. program, including interdisciplinary research projects and proposals. Additional responsibilities include teaching one course per semester and departmental and university service.
Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, materials science or related area Prior success in obtaining, or the demonstrated potential to obtain, external research funding Demonstrated effective spoken and written English communication skills A commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching and graduate education
