Faculty & Postdoc Openings

Faculty Positions


The School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia seeks candidates for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels (hiring level commensurate with experience). Successful candidates will develop internationally recognized research programs while contributing to the School’s educational excellence via teaching and mentoring.

Candidate selection is weighted, in general, toward the potential impact and innovation of the proposed research program. All areas of chemical and biomolecular engineering are of interest, including but not limited to: chemical and synthetic biology, biotechnology and bioprocess engineering, catalysis and separations, energy and sustainability, process intensification and systems engineering, nanoscience and self-assembly, materials processing and nanomanufacturing, and soft matter physics and chemistry.

Candidates must have a doctorate in chemical engineering or related discipline. To apply, send a single PDF file to faculty.candidates@chbe.gatech.edu that includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae, description of proposed research, statement of teaching plans, and list of at least three professional references.

The School is part of Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering, where all undergraduate and graduate programs are ranked in the top ten by U.S. News and World Report. Visit www.chbe.gatech.edu for more information.

Postdoctoral Positions

The School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech will offer multiple fully funded Eckert postdoctoral fellowships in 2019. Recipients of these positions will be designated Eckert Postdoctoral Fellows. Applications for this position are open for researchers interested in working with any of the 35+ core faculty in the School.

Features of this fellowship include:
