Chemical and Biological Engineering

These positions are part of the Drexel Engineering Faculty Cluster Hiring initiative.

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) at Drexel University invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant Professor, effective as early as September 1, 2022. The search is open to candidates with research expertise in the general area of biotechnology, including biomanufacturing, pharmaceuticals, systems biology, and/or cell biology, as part of not only the College of Engineering’s Cluster Hiring Initiative, but also a University-wide faculty hiring initiative around cell engineering and gene therapeutics.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in Chemical Engineering or a related field by the September 1, 2022 start date, demonstrated excellence in academic research, and a strong commitment to teaching and advising undergraduate and graduate students.

CBE at Drexel boasts a total of 12 faculty members including one PECASE and 10 NSF CAREER award winners, one ONR Young Investigator, and one Fulbright Fellow. Research activity falls in four principal areas: Polymer Science and Engineering, Multiscale Modeling and Process Systems Engineering, Energy and the Environment, and Biological Engineering.

Applications should include: (i) a cover letter; (ii) curriculum vitae detailing educational background, research accomplishments, and work experience; (iii) a research plan; (iv) teaching and service plans; (v) names of at least three professional references; and (vi) a statement on fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. Particularly for candidates who hold BS degrees outside of chemical engineering, the teaching plan should address their ability to teach core undergraduate courses in CBE.

Applications should be submitted by the primary consideration date of November 8, 2021 or until the position is filled.
