The Department of Chemical Engineering at Penn State (http://www.che.psu.edu) invites applications for a tenure-line faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or Professor level. While the area of research and scholarship is open, applicants who can develop and maintain a vibrant sponsored research program in life cycle assessment (LCA) and environmental impacts will be given greater consideration. In addition to research and scholarship, the successful applicant will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. There is a preference for applicants with a B.S. and/or Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering. Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering or a related field at the time of starting the position and a strong record of scholarly achievement. The successful candidate will assume a key role in interdisciplinary research collaborations. This position is co-funded through Penn State University’s Institutes of Energy and the Environment (IEE), http://www.iee.psu.edu/. Penn State’s College of Engineering strives to build a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for students, staff, and faculty. We rely on the expertise, sensitivity, and commitment of an inclusive faculty to enhance diversity, seek equity, and create a welcoming environment within our community. We are committed to nurturing a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation. In welcoming every candidate, we strive to meet the needs of professional families by actively assisting with partner-placement needs.
