The University of Florida (UF) and Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering (HWCOE) have launched ambitious initiatives to position UF among the top five of the nation’s premier public research universities. UF is currently ranked #8 among public universities by US News and World Report (2018). A component of this initiative is significant expansion of faculty, with the HWCOE in particular growing to 300 faculty members in the next few years.
In line with this goal, the Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Florida will be hiring 5 new tenure track faculty, including an endowed professor in energy, and two lecturers over the next 2-3 years. We invite applications for tenure-track faculty and lecturer positions at all levels (see attached ad). The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Florida has a long history of excellence in research and education, and has had an impact in the formation of many professional and intellectual leaders in Chemical Engineering. Areas of current research in the department include advanced materials, bioengineering, catalysis and surface science, complex fluids, electrochemical engineering, energy, and chemical engineering fundamentals. Chemical Engineering faculty and students benefit from close collaborations with other Engineering disciplines, as well as with faculty and students from the College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Chemical Engineering research takes advantage of a wide array of state-of-the-art instrumentation housed in service centers throughout UF, including the Nanoscale Research Facility, the College of Engineering Research Service Centers, the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research, the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy facility, and others. The Department is also exceptionally positioned to contribute to translation and commercialization of technologies because of the world-renowned resources for entrepreneurship and commercialization, including the Sid Martin Biotechnology Incubator, UF’s 40-acre Innovation Square, and the burgeoning entrepreneurial community around Gainesville.
Candidates working in all areas of chemical engineering will be considered, particularly those areas that build on existing strengths within the department and across campus.
