Assistant/Associate/Full Professor Faculty Positions

The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering (VSCEB) at Washington State University (WSU) invites applications for up to three full-time, permanent, tenured/tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant/associate/full professor levels commensurate with qualifications. We anticipate these new hires will assist VSCEB at WSU to further grow our vibrant research and educational programs. We strongly encourage applicants from groups underrepresented in engineering to apply for the positions. The positions will be located at the WSU/Pullman campus.

Summary of Duties:

The successful candidate is expected to establish a dynamic, externally funded, nationally recognized research program, teach core and elective undergraduate and graduate courses in chemical engineering and/or bioengineering, mentor a diverse group of students, perform professional service at a level commensurate with rank, and publish scholarly work. VSCEB welcomes strong candidates who can complement departmental strengths in catalysis, bioengineering, and biochemical engineering. Priority will be given to candidates whose work shows significant promise and the potential to uniquely strengthen existing programs.  Successful candidates will be able to build collaborations with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as well as other departments at WSU.

About The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering:

The individual hired for this position will join existing faculty members in the VSCEB. As of Fall 2022, 290 undergraduate students, 4 MS students, and 58 Ph.D. students are enrolled in programs offered by the VSCEB. We currently graduate about 49 BS students and 18 graduate students each year. We plan to grow our undergraduate and graduate programs through new and innovative research and educational offerings.

The VSCEB has an exceptionally strong focus on the development and use of catalysis for energy and environmental applications. We also have strengths in electrochemical energy conversion, electrochemically active biofilm systems, and human health-related protein and tissue engineering research. With over $4 million in recorded annual research expenditures, the VSCEB faculty has an outstanding track record in receiving 6 NSF CAREER awards and acquiring several multi-million dollar collaborative research grants and many individual project grants from NSF, NIH, DOE, USDA, ONR, DTRA,  and other federal and private funding agencies. In addition, the bioengineering faculty has established strong synergy with other faculty in biology, chemistry, microbiology, neuroscience, and materials science as well as the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine and the medical community in Spokane, WA, on human health-related research. Furthermore, our chemical engineering and bioengineering faculty are integral to one of the nation’s longest-running, NIGMS-sponsored Ph.D. training programs, which is focused on protein biotechnology.
