Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering - University of Iowa


The University of Iowa invites outstanding applicants for a tenure-track 
faculty position in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical 
Engineering. The position is targeted at the Assistant Professor level 
but all ranks will be considered. Applicants must have a PhD or 
equivalent degree in Chemical Engineering or in an engineering or 
scientific discipline appropriate to their research focus. Potential for 
excellence in research and teaching is essential. This position is 
targeted to those working in research focused on the application of 
informatics to climate, energy, air pollution, environmental systems and 
related topics (e.g., energy systems design, sensor networks, 
combinatorial design, cheminformatics, etc.).The successful candidate is 
expected to develop an internationally recognized research program and 
to contribute fully as a scholar through teaching of undergraduate and 
graduate courses and through service to science and engineering.

For more than 100 years, The University of Iowa has been preparing 
students for careers in chemical engineering. Today, with approximately 
200 undergraduate and 35 graduate students, the Department of Chemical 
and Biochemical Engineering is a thriving program with strong ties to 
medical and environmental sciences. Interdisciplinary research is a 
strength, with close interactions with chemical and health science 
departments throughout the university. This position builds upon a new 
Informatics Cluster hire described below coupled with strengths within 
the department and college related to renewable energy, air quality, 
environmental engineering, and environmental change.

Informatics is a strategic priority of the university, College of 
Engineering, and the department.The current position is a part of the 
University of Iowa Informatics Initiative, which includes the recent 
"cluster hire" of 20 new interdisciplinary faculty members to advance 
informatics education, training, research.The candidate will join a 
growing cluster of faculty working on applied issues in informatics and 
big data, supplementing existing faculty and recent additions to the 
cluster working in both fundamental and applied informatics.The 
candidates are expected to develop independent research programs, become 
part of the anticipated Institute of Informatics 
(http://informatics.uiowa.edu/), and collaborate closely with one or 
more additional centers or research institutes at the University of Iowa 
(e.g. IIHR Hydroscience and Engineering http://www.iihr.uiowa.edu/, 
Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research 
http://cgrer.uiowa.edu/). Participation in the Informatics Cluster will 
be an important component in performance evaluations.

The target starting date for this position is August 2015. The search 
committee chair is Charles O. Stanier. Send nominations or questions to 
charles-stanier at uiowa.edu <mailto:charles-stanier at uiowa.edu>. Initial
