Faculty Recruitment -Meet the faculty poster session at the AICHE 2018 Annual Conference

As the faculty recruitment season begins, many of you are starting to post ads and consider faculty candidates (or post-doctoral candidates).  We want to remind you about the “Meet the Faculty Candidates” Poster Session at the 2018 AIChE Annual Conference organized through the Education Division of AIChE.

If you have a faculty opening (or post-docs) and want to send your advertisement to all the participants, please send your announcement as a pdf attachment to us.  We will send them directly.  AIChE staff may contact you for additional help you may need.

Please click this link to see the list of participants.  The candidates are clustered by their research keyword.

An important change we want to bring to your attention is that participants submit their resume on-line for free.  They could incorporate digital media such as LinkedIn while creating their resume.  Departments can browse the database by creating an AICHE account, if they don’t have one. Here is a link:  In addition, this source can be found at two other locations

If you or search committee member are planning to attend the session, it would help the candidates if you wear something that identifies (e.g., badge, ribbon, school t-shirt).  The attached documents give similar information about the session with contact details.

We appreciate your help and support.
