Location: Glassboro, New Jersey
Categories: Faculty - College of Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering at Rowan University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position. Successful candidates will develop and lead a vigorous independently funded research program; teach and advise undergraduate and graduate students and participate actively in the departmental and larger professional community. We seek faculty members who will strive to create an inclusive learning environment by embracing excellence and diversity. Preference will be given to candidates with research areas in growth technologies preferably in soft matter, colloids and interphase phenomena design and characterization, and the development of advanced materials.

The Chemical Engineering Department has a well-established undergraduate program, and is building a dynamic graduate research component. A new Ph.D. program and recently completed facilities expansion and renovation strongly support this endeavor. The new faculty member will join a nucleus of research-focused faculty as we continue to grow. With this support, the candidate is to develop and sustain a nationally recognized externally funded research program, which utilizes and supports Rowan’s multidisciplinary engineering clinics and graduate programs.

A plan for a research program that specifically addresses the above characteristics and enhances the new research mission of the Department needs to be included in applicants’ research statement. Demonstrated ability in writing proposals, presenting and publishing, and mentoring students is desirable. A doctorate in chemical engineering or a related field is required for appointment. The starting date is September 1 2020.

The committee will commence review of applications in October 2019 and applications will continue to be considered until the position is filled.
