|The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Tulane University invites applications for a Professor of Practice with a specialty in Engineering Design. This is a non-tenure track faculty position with a three-year renewable term. The successful applicant will lead our undergraduate capstone design course, as well as other key courses, including our service-learning course, which is one of the greatest strengths of our undergraduate curriculum.
Applicants should have a graduate degree in engineering (PhD or PE desirable), with experience in engineering design. Industrial experience is preferred. The Professor of Practice is a teaching intensive position, and direct student contact through mentorship of student design projects is expected. Candidates should demonstrate an interest in taking a leadership role in enhancing the undergraduate experience of our students.
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, founded in the late 1800â€™s, is the third oldest department in the country, has an ABET accredited undergraduate program with approximately 100 undergraduate majors and 45 graduate students. Located within the new School of Science and Engineering, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering benefits from strong interdisciplinary interactions and an administrative structure that reduces the overhead associated with these interactions.
We seek candidates who will contribute to a rapidly growing department with strong links to the physical, mathematical, and biological sciences. More information about the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering can be found at: www.tulane.edu/sse/cbe
Interested applicants should send a .pdf application of their curriculum vitae, a brief description of their engineering design experience, teaching and leadership interests and how your interests might enhance Tulaneâ€™s Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department to:
