Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering invites applicants for two tenure-track faculty openings, in the areas of Air Quality Engineering, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics and/or Climate Change.
Potential areas of interest include remote sensing, instrument development, exposure and health effects, air quality policy, climate modeling and cloud physics.
Successful applicants will join Carnegie Mellon’s Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies (http://caps.web.cmu.edu), a multidisciplinary center involving faculty and students in the College of Engineering and the Mellon College of Science. CAPS has internationally recognized strengths in theory, measurement and modeling of atmospheric aerosol physics and chemistry and regional/global air quality modeling.
We expect candidates for tenure-track positions to have strong commitment both to research and to teaching, at the Undergraduate and Graduate levels. Successful candidates should have earned Ph.D.s in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or closely related disciplines, at the time of appointment. Initial appointments are anticipated to be made at the rank of Assistant Professor, but appointments at the ranks of Associate Professor or full Professor may be available for exceptional candidates, having commensurate experience.
Of the two positions, one position is in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (http://www.cmu.edu/me); applicants for the Mechanical Engineering position must have strong technical credentials, but need not have policy interests or accomplishments. The second position is joint (50:50), between the Department of Chemical Engineering (http://www.cheme.cmu.edu) and the Department of Engineering and Public Policy (http://www.epp.cmu.edu). For the Chemical Engineering/Public Policy position, applicants at the junior level must have strong technical backgrounds and clearly articulated policy interests. More senior applicants for this joint position must have substantial technical accomplishments and clear records of policy-analytic accomplishments.
Applicants should submit cover letters, Curriculum Vitae, contact information for three to five professional references, copies of two research papers and statements (limited to 3 pages), that describe research and educational interests.
Applicants must apply online, at:
