Faculty Position Openings

As our most senior, long-time faculty begin to retire while student enrollment in chemical engineering continues to grow, the greatest need within the William G. Lowrie Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Ohio State University is for new, high-quality faculty and continued support for existing faculty. Quality faculty provide the backbone of education, core knowledge, and key experiences that shape students into successful chemical engineers.

The department will post TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITION openings when faculty lines are approved.


The Ohio State University is located in Columbus, Ohio, a thriving, multicultural Smart City that offers a low cost of living and a stable economy, vibrant neighborhoods, outstanding medical facilities, and a multitude of recreational, cultural, and intellectual opportunities. Discover why College of Engineering Dean David Williams believes that Ohio State Engineering is a driver of economic development and what makes Ohio State and Columbus stand out.
