Faculty Position Openings

We are in the process of creating an application portal for THREE TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITIONS in the William G. Lowrie Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Ohio State University. Position descriptions are as follows:

1)  CANCER CLUSTER -  ENDOWED; Associate or Full Professor. This is a senior endowed position for a mid-career chemical engineer doing outstanding research in cancer. Position will involve strong collaborations with faculty in medical-related disciplines and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center developing novel approaches to targeted cancer detection, characterization, imaging, and treatment, with research emphasizing personalized medicine in diagnosis and treatment given priority. 

2)  REACTION ENGINEERING - Assistant or Associate Professor. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: molecular simulation, electrochemical reactions, catalytic and non-catalytic reactions, polymers, multiphase reactors, computational fluid dynamics, particle science and technology. 

3)  SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING - Assistant or Associate Professor in Process Systems Engineering. Areas of interest include but are not limited to process control and process design. Candidate should be working in the area of process systems engineering with a track record and strong interest in contributing to efforts toward sustainable manufacturing. 

The application portal for these positions, as well as full details, should be posted within the week.  Please check back!
