Tenure Track Faculty Positions in Chemical Engineering
The College of Engineering at the University of Toledo invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Chemical Engineering. Successful candidates must have demonstrated abilities in, or evidence of outstanding potential for, research and teaching in Chemical Engineering. Exceptionally qualified candidates with a record of sustained scholarship and funding will be considered for tenure at the rank of associate or full professor.
The Department has a dynamic research environment with thrusts in biofuels processing, advanced materials, membrane separations, catalyst development, and biotechnology/biobased products. The primary area of interest is in the energy field – including but not limited to the areas of clean technologies, biocatalysis, biofuels, reaction engineering, fuel processing and fuel cells, advanced materials from renewable feedstocks, photovoltaics, and systems engineering approaches for energy and sustainability. One position will focus on the effective and sustainable conversion of bio-renewable resources and bio-based materials.
The Department has 11 faculty, ~200 undergraduate and ~30 graduate students. In 2004-05 the Department ranked 34th in the US in number of BS degrees awarded.

The University of Toledo is one of only seventeen US public universities to offer professional and graduate academic programs in business, education, engineering, health and human services, law, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy. The University is state assisted, with an enrollment of approximately 19,000 students of which about 4500 are graduate and professional students. Known as the “Glass Capital of the World”, Toledo is home to multiple Fortune 500 companies and has established itself as a global leader in photovoltaic manufacturing and research. The metropolitan area offers a world-class art museum and a wide range of recreational opportunities on Lake Erie.
Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Chemical Engineering or a closely related field. Postdoctoral or industrial experience beyond the Ph.D. degree is highly desirable. Consideration will also be given to candidates who are in the final stages of completing their doctoral programs. Rank and salary are negotiable and attractive startup packages will be provided.
The positions will remain open until appointments are made. Applications will be screened continuously until the positions are filled. The start date for new appointments is negotiable but no sooner than January 2009.
