Faculty Position Openings

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Ohio State University has tenure track openings in the areas of cancer treatment and renewable energy:

Assistant/Associate Professor - Cancer Cluster

The successful candidate will become part of a synergistic group of engineering faculty developing novel approaches to targeted cancer detection, characterization, imaging, and treatment.  Research emphasizing personalized medicine in diagnosis and treatment, signaling pathways in cancer, and tumor microenvironment are especially encouraged.  Applications with previous clinical interactions and/or a record of funding by NCI or cancer-related organizations will be given priority. Members of this cluster are expected to collaborate closely with each other, as well as with medical researchers in the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center (https://cancer.osu.edu).

Assistant/Associate Professor - Green Chemistry/Sustainable Engineering

This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s Discovery Themes Initiative (www.discovery.osu.edu), a substantial faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas. The candidate should be capable of building a strong program in the broadly defined area of chemical reaction engineering that relates to OSU’s Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program (www.discovery.osu/SRE) and be interested in participating in interdisciplinary research teams.
