I want to bring to your attention two openings in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University.
Position 1: broad area search, due date December 3, 2018
Position 2: interdepartmental search in School of Engineering on computational science at quantum level for catalysis and materials, due date November 15, 2018.
Department of Chemical Engineering
The Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University is seeking applicants for a tenure-
track faculty position at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). Applicants
are expected to have earning a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering or a related discipline.
There are several broad areas of interest, for example, biochemical and biomolecular engineering,
including synthetic biology, bioprocess engineering, protein engineering, biomarker
developments, chemical and biological sensors and metabolic engineering; surface reactivity and
catalysis: fuel cells, solar energy, and batteries; environmental or atmospheric studies; membrane
science; molecular transport processes and mechanics; soft materials physics and chemistry;
nanomaterials processing and computation and simulation. In general, we give higher priority to
the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather than to the sub-area of
specialization. Researchers with interests in the applied life sciences, energy sciences, and
environmental sciences are particularly encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate level, to
develop advanced graduate courses in a research specialty, as well as to develop a world-class
research program with emphasis on the fundamental physical, chemical or biological aspects of
chemical engineering science. Applicants should be seeking a stimulating interdisciplinary
environment in which to pursue teaching and research. We anticipate that the faculty member will
contribute to and develop leadership roles and interactions among faculty not only in Chemical
Engineering, but also Electrical, Mechanical, Civil and Environmental and Materials Science and
Engineering in the School of Engineering; in Physics, Chemistry and Biology in the School of
Humanities and Sciences; in the departments and programs in the School of Earth, Energy and
Environmental Sciences and in the School of Medicine, as well as Bioengineering located in the
Schools of Engineering and Medicine; and at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.
Applicants must submit online their curriculum vitae (including research accomplishments,
teaching experience, and publications), a transcript of doctoral graduate study, a detailed research
(no more than 5 pages) and teaching plan (1 page), and three or more references. Applications are
due by December 3, 2018, but we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.
Please apply online at http://cheme.stanford.edu/.

Computational science at the quantum level for catalysis and materials
The School of Engineering at Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track
faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the
field of computational science at the quantum level for heterogeneous and electro-catalysis
and materials. Applicants are expected to have earned a Ph.D. degree in chemical
engineering, materials science and engineering, or related disciplines. Priority will be given
to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any particular
specialization area or department affiliation.
The successful candidate is expected to develop a world-class research program within a
stimulating interdisciplinary environment and demonstrate a strong commitment to
teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. We seek applicants with expertise
in materials and chemical/physical processes for applications such as catalysis and energy,
with research that focuses on computational approaches at the quantum level, i.e.
simulations at atomic and molecular scales. An ideal candidate would work well in teams
with other scientists and engineers at Stanford and at SLAC National Accelerator
Laboratory to achieve breakthrough results relevant to new technologies in the areas of
catalysis, materials, and energy, with promise of translation to scaled-up practice.
The appointment of the successful candidate is envisioned to be in one of the departments
of Chemical Engineering or Materials Science and Engineering, although a joint
appointment with these or other departments in the School of Engineering will also be
considered, as well as possibilities with the Photon Science Faculty at SLAC.
Candidates should apply online at https://www.applyweb.com/cgi-bin/app?s=STANFAC.
The application website may also be reached via the webpages for the Department of
Chemical Engineering (http://cheme.stanford.edu), the Department of Materials Science &
Engineering (http://mse.stanford.edu), or the Stanford University School of Engineering
(http://soe.stanford.edu). Applications are due by November 15, 2018, but we will continue
to accept applications until the position is filled. Applications should include a research
and teaching plan (not to exceed five pages), a detailed resume including a publications
list, and the names and addresses of three references. Questions may be directed to search
administration at firstname.lastname@example.org.
