The Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering (www.eece.wustl.edu) at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure eligible faculty position at the Lecturer rank to begin August 2018. The Lecturer will teach classes in the undergraduate and masters program in the department in the areas of environmental engineering science. In addition, this person would be in charge of the shared laboratory facilities in the department, and a background and expertise in the experimental (laboratory) areas of environmental engineering are desirable. The position is a full time appointment. With several initiatives in the Department, the Lecturer can also participate and help in other activities (e.g., ABET, Student Chapters, and International Programs) to support the educational mission.

Candidates should hold a BS degree in an engineering or science discipline from an accredited engineering program. Preferred candidates will have an earned Ph.D. in environmental engineering, chemical engineering, or a related engineering discipline. Candidates with other degrees would be considered if they have experience in managing shared instrumentation laboratories or have prior teaching experience. Experience in laboratory teaching and course development is desired. Related industrial experience will also be considered. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications, and the position is benefits eligible as per university guidelines.

The department is vibrant with many active research and educational programs. Founded in 1853, Washington University is a medium-sized, independent research university dedicated to challenging its faculty and students to seek new knowledge and greater understanding of an ever changing, multi-cultural world. The university is counted among the world's leaders in teaching and research and draws students (with over 13,000 full-time students) and faculty to St. Louis from all 50 states and from 125 nations.

Applicants should send a cover letter outlining their experience and interest, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and names of two references by email as a single file in PDF format to: kcole@wustl.edu. If you have any questions, please contact John Fortner (Chair of the Search) at jfortner@wustl.edu or the Chair of the Department, Dr. Pratim Biswas at pbiswas@wustl.edu.

Applications will be considered until the position is filled, but priority will be given to those received by January 30, 2018. Women and members of groups under-represented in engineering are encouraged to apply. Washington University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Employment eligibility verification will be required upon selection.
