Faculty positions in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Johns Hopkins
The Johns Hopkins University's Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering seeks applicants for tenure-track/tenured faculty positions. Candidates with research and teaching interests in all areas relevant to chemical and biomolecular engineering will be considered, including, but not limited to, efforts addressing fundamental societal challenges in health and climate, chemical engineering opportunities related to aging, diseases such as cancer, data science and machine learning, catalysis/separations/energy storage and harvesting, decarbonization, process synthesis and optimization, process systems engineering, laboratory automation, high-throughput experimentation, nanomanufacturing, soft matter, computational approaches to chemical and biomolecular engineering problems, and biomolecular engineering/synthetic biology, including applications in biomanufacturing, immunoengineering, cell and genome engineering, and multi-omics engineering.
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is a highly collaborative and innovative department. It has an established track record of national leadership and developing new disciplines within chemical and biomolecular engineering. This year, Johns Hopkins announced a major new investment in data science and the exploration of artificial intelligence that will be include in a new data science and translation institute, a new state-of the-art facility and recruitment of 110 new faculty over the next five years. The institute will bring together world-class experts in artificial intelligence, machine learning, applied mathematics, computer engineering, and computer science to fuel data-driven discovery in support of research activities across the institution including within the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department.
In addition to its role in this initiative, the department is a leader in other major research centers and institutes at Johns Hopkins, including the Ralph O'Connor Sustainable Energy Institute (ROSEI), the Institute for Nanobiotechnology (INBT), MINDS (Mathematical Institute for Data Science), the Maryland Area Research Computing Center (MARCC), and the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI). Faculty collaborate frequently with scholars in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Applied Physics Laboratory, Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. The chemical and biomolecular engineering department has large, vibrant educational programs at the undergraduate, master's, and Ph.D. levels.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a related field, a track record of outstanding research, and a commitment to excellence in education and student mentoring. The Johns Hopkins Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering recognizes the value and experience of individuals of different backgrounds. The department and Johns Hopkins University are strongly dedicated to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming environment for all faculty, staff, and students, and to improving and sustaining equitable structures throughout our community.
Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering or a related field
Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
