The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the Florida A&M University (FAMU)-Florida State University (FSU) College of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in biomedical nanomaterials. While our preference is for an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, appropriately qualified applicants could be appointed at the Full Professor Level.
The Department has a dynamic group of faculty active in research across various areas of chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, and materials science and engineering. Moreover, the successful candidate will have many opportunities to interact and collaborate with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, FSU College of Medicine, FSU Interdisciplinary Program in Materials Science and Engineering, FSU Institute of Molecular Biophysics, FSU Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship, and FSU Departments of Scientific Computing, and Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as the FAMU Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. (Details can be found at the Department web page: www.eng.fsu.edu/cbe).
The College is unique in combining two outstanding universities with overlapping but distinct missions - the nation’s top Historically Black College/University with one of the nation’s ~100 Highest Research Activity Universities. As such we provide an outstanding research and entrepreneurship based education to one of the most diverse student populations in the US. Faculty are employed by one or the other of our partner universities but hold joint faculty privileges at both universities.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a related discipline.
Priority will be given to candidates in the area of biomedical nanomaterials but outstanding candidates in related areas such as biomaterials and cellular engineering will be considered. The successful candidate is expected to create a research program that is internationally-recognized and well-funded, collaborate with interdisciplinary researchers across campus, and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in education through teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and the supervision of undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral researchers.
Applicants should submit: 1.A cover letter 2.A full curriculum vitae 3.A 2-page research statement 4.A 1-page teaching statement 5.No more than four selected publications for review 6.The names and contact information of three potential references 7.An EEOC form (web reference)
Application documents should be sent in pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions about the position should be directed to Dr. Jingjiao Guan at email@example.com.
Review of applications will begin mid- November 2017, but applications will be accepted until December 15th or later if the position is unfilled.
