|JOINT FACULTY POSITION in CHEMICAL AND BIOMOLECULAR ENGINEERING AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE at VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY
The Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Vanderbilt University (VUChBE and VUEECS) together with the Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) invite applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position, with preference for appointment at the assistant or associate professor rank. We seek an outstanding candidate with demonstrated expertise at the intersection of energy, nanotechnology, and devices. Applicants must demonstrate the ability to develop a vibrant, externally funded research program, along with an equal commitment to outstanding teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. All junior faculty members hired in VUChBE (http://engineering.vanderbilt.edu/chbe/) and VUEECS (http://engineering.vanderbilt.edu/eecs/) in the past decade have received prestigious young investigator awards, such as NSF CAREER, PECASE, and DARPA CSSG. VINSE is the nucleus for nanoscale materials and device research at VU, and offers access to comprehensive and state-of-the-art core facilities. This opportunity is part of the School of Engineeringâ€™s strategic direction in â€˜Energy and Natural Resourcesâ€™ and coincides with the construction of a new building slated for occupancy during the summer of 2016.
Ranked in the top 20 nationally, Vanderbilt University is a private, internationally renowned research university located on 330 park-like acres one and one-half miles from downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Its ten distinct schools share a single cohesive campus that includes a co-located medical center and nurtures interdisciplinary activities. The School of Engineering currently comprises 91 tenured and tenure-track faculty, operates with an annual budget of over $100 million, including $70 million from externally funded research, and serves 1,300 undergraduate and over 450 graduate students. In the 2013 rankings of graduate engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report, the School ranks 5th among programs with fewer than 100 faculty.
With a metro population of approximately 1.5 million people, Nashville has been named one of the 15 best U.S. cities for work and family by Fortune magazine, was ranked as the number one most popular U.S. city for corporate relocations by Expansion Management magazine, and was named by Forbes magazine as one of the 25 cities most likely to have the country's highest job growth over the coming five years. Major industries include tourism, printing and publishing, technology manufacturing, music production, higher education, finance, insurance, automobile production and health care management.
Applications should be submitted electronically here and must include: a cover letter with names and contact information of at least three references, a CV, a statement of research, and a statement of teaching philosophy. Applications received prior to 15 November 2013 will receive priority in evaluation.
