Stephanie BryantNow seeking applications for tenure-track faculty positions

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder is currently seeking applications for tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of synthetic biology, systems biology, biomolecular transport and regenerative medicine with applications to energy, medicine and advanced materials.  The openings are targeted at the level of Assistant Professor, but experienced candidates with outstanding credentials will be considered for Associate or Full Professor Appointments. The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering is undergoing a period of unprecedented faculty growth and expansion to match an ambitious vision of research and teaching excellence that now also includes a new PhD degree in Biological Engineering as well as new state-of-the art facilities in both the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building and the Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community Building.

Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree in chemical engineering, biological engineering, bioengineering or a related field, where qualified candidates will contribute through their interdisciplinary research, undergraduate and graduate teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. Each new faculty member will be expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded research program that synergizes with others in the University of Colorado system. Candidates whose expertise cuts across engineering and related disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants must submit their applications online. Submit a PDF file containing a cover letter stating your research areas (1-pg), names and contact information for 3 to 5 references, curriculum vitae, and statements describing your goals related to teaching and research (3-5 pgs). For the research and teaching statements, applicants should describe their plans to develop a recognized research program based on scholarly work in their particular field, their ideas for interdisciplinary collaboration, their experience and interests in teaching undergraduates and graduates, and their future plans for inspiring diverse students to conduct research. In addition, please indicate in the cover letter if you plan to be at the AIChE or BMES annual meeting and provide the details of the sessions and talks scheduled (if any).  Please apply by November 1, 2019 for primary consideration; however, the position will remain open until filled. Applications from women and minorities are especially encouraged. The College of Engineering and Applied Science is eager to accommodate the needs of dual career couples.

The University of Colorado Boulder is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to fostering and maintaining a diverse work culture that respects the rights and dignity of each individual.  We encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.  Alternative formats of this ad can be provided upon request for individuals with disabilities by contacting the ADA Coordinator at
