The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position. Exceptional Candidates in all areas of specialization will be considered, with preference given to those with expertise in Chemical and/or Environmental Engineering. The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering enrolls approximately 450 undergraduate and 100 graduate students. The 22 tenure-track faculty include one NAE member, nine NSF/DOE/DOD early career awardees, and multiple elected fellows in professional societies. This productive and collaborative faculty led $12 million of active research projects in 2016-17. Opportunities for collaboration exist through multiple college-level and campus-wide initiatives, including the Center for Agriculture and Food Enterprise (CAFÉ), the Water Resource Center (WRC), the School of Medicine (SOM), the School of Public Policy (SPP), the Winston Chung Global Energy Center (WCGEC), UC-KIMS Center of Innovative Materials for Energy and Environment (UC-KIMS CIME) and the College of Engineering's Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT).
Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for, developing a vibrant externally-funded research program and developing a portfolio of high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. UC faculty will be expected to maintain an active research agenda and record of publications; teach a regular course load at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and to participate in service activities at department, college campus, and professional levels. They should also demonstrate clear potential for complementing and/or synergistically leveraging existing research activities within the department, college and campus. Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
