The Ohio State University is seeking an established scholar to be the inaugural holder of the ENGIE Endowed Chair in Sustainable Materials. Sustainable energy production, storage, conversion and distribution are fundamentally dependent on the development of new materials. Future energy systems will require the simultaneous development of novel fluids, materials, and architectures as well as the evaluation of those novel materials on sustainable practices, the climate, and the planet. The successful candidate will have a national and international research and education record in the broad area of sustainable materials. It is expected that the candidate will have a tenured faculty appointment in one or more departments spanning the natural materials systems (e.g. physical, biological, chemical, geological...) and engineered materials fields (e.g. electrical, infrastructure, metallic, ceramic, polymeric, environmental…).

This Chair is one of a cohort of four ENGIE endowed positions that collectively address challenges in sustainable materials, resilient energy systems, energy and ecosystem policy, and energy and environmental humanities. These four faculty members will be expected to work collaboratively and to collectively play leadership faculty roles in Ohio State’s Energy Advancement and Innovation Center (https://www.osu.edu/energymanagement/Visionary%20project.pdf), and to partner with the dozens of faculty hired through the university’s recent investments in two allied Discovery Themes: Materials and Manufacturing for Sustainability (https://discovery.osu.edu/materials-and-manufacturing-sustainability) and Sustainable and Resilient Economy (https://discovery.osu.edu/sustainable-and-resilient-economy). The ENGIE endowed positions are part of a $150M academic investment in the area of sustainable energy as part of the 50-year partnership between Ohio State and Ohio State Energy Partners, a consortium of ENGIE North America and Axium Infrastructure; see https://www.osu.edu/energymanagement/index.php?id=67.
