The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at University of California, Riverside invites applications for a faculty position in the area of Environmental Engineering at the Associate or Full Professor rank beginning the 2016/17 academic year. Candidates with an exceptional research, teaching, and service record will be considered at both levels. We are seeking a highly motivated and interdisciplinary researcher and teacher with a strong background and experience in chemical and environmental engineering and a commitment to developing solutions to global grand challenges. The successful candidate is expected to launch and maintain an independent, externally funded research program within the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Department, with a preference for expertise in the broader field of air or water quality engineering. Multiple, campus-wide collaborative initiatives are available for further leverage, including the College of Engineering’s Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT), California Air Resources Board (CARB) impending move to the UCR campus, the Center for Agriculture and Food Enterprise (CAFÉ), the Water Resource Center (WRC), the School of Medicine (SOM), and the School of Public Policy (SPP).
The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering has approximately 425 undergraduate students, 110 graduate students, and 22 tenure-track faculty. Candidates are expected to contribute to research, teaching and service loads of the University Senate. Specifically, candidates should be able to teach chemical and environmental engineering courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. We seek candidates who are firmly committed to both undergraduate and graduate education, and who will engage in a rigorous research program.
The successful candidate should hold a doctoral degree in engineering or a closely related field by the start of service with an outstanding academic record. He/she will conduct independent research, advise undergraduate and graduate students, and collaborate with other BCOE faculty and research staff. Post-doctoral experience is desirable but not required. We are particularly interested in attracting academically and culturally diverse candidates, especially those who can contribute to the growing diversity and excellence of the community through their teaching, scholarship, and service.
