Faculty position opening at Carnegie Mellon

The Department of Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position. 

Applicants must have earned a PhD in chemical engineering or a closely related field of engineering or science. We are open with respect to rank and research area; applicants with an experimental focus on biological, biomedical, or bioengineering aspects of chemical engineering will be of particular interest. For senior level applicants, teaching experience and an internationally recognized record of research are expected. Carnegie Mellon promotes collaboration, and thus we welcome applicants with an interest in a joint position with another Department. We highly value applicants who are driven to nurture an inclusive and culturally diverse environment in our department and, more broadly, at Carnegie Mellon. We will actively seek a diverse applicant pool in terms of gender, sexual orientation, race, veteran status, and disability.

Application Instructions
Interested candidates should submit applications electronically, which should contain a cover letter, curriculum vitae and three statements: a statement of research experience and interests; a statement of teaching experience and interests; and a statement describing how the candidate has contributed to and plans to contribute to diversity, inclusion, and equity. The Search Committee will solicit names of references and their contact information after the initial review, and only for a subset of applicants. These applicants will be notified in advance before letters are requested.

Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. The expected start date is August 1, 2023. E-mail inquiries concerning this position may be sent to the Search Committee by emailing Samantha Seroka ( ).

MSGC Graduate Fellowship Application Support at Michigan Tech

The Graduate School is offering support services to assist graduate students in applying for the Michigan Space Grant Consortium’s (MSGC’s) Graduate Fellowship, including a workshop and one-on-one writing support.

MSGC’s Graduate Fellowship opportunity supports graduate students from affiliate institutions who are conducting research and public service projects relevant to NASA’s strategic interests as expressed in NASA’s 2014 and 2018 Strategic Plans — specifically, research focused on aerospace, space science and earth system science.

Graduate students working in these fields and related science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields are eligible to apply. MSGC is also piloting an expanded definition of STEM to include support for interdisciplinary projects that include art, so graduate students conducting research and projects relevant to NASA’s strategic interests in disciplines not traditionally considered STEM, such as the humanities or social sciences, are likewise encouraged to apply.

Fellowship recipients are awarded $5,000. To be eligible, applicants must identify a mentor, be U.S. nationals, have a good academic record and be in good academic standing. Women, underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Students currently receiving MSGC Fellowships are eligible to reapply.
