The Linda and Bipin Doshi Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in Rolla, Missouri is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of bioengineering including but not limited to drug and gene delivery, nanomedicine, biomaterials, biomanufacturing, biopharmaceuticals, and tissue engineering. Candidates at the Assistant Professor rank are preferred; however, candidates with exceptional experience and qualifications may be considered at the rank of Associate Professor.
Missouri S&T’s Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering occupies the new Bertelsmeyer Hall that accommodates state-of-the-art research laboratories related to energy (including multiphase flow and reactors engineering, renewable fuels, and batteries), environmental applications including carbon capture and conversion, and biomedical applications such as biomaterials and drug and gene delivery. It also houses recently renovated teaching laboratories and classrooms. The Department received a $10M naming gift from Mr. Bipin and Mrs. Linda Doshi in the fall of 2020, the largest gift to an academic program at S&T. With the gift, three endowed professor positions were created. Currently, the department has 11 faculty members including three AIChE fellows. Six current and former faculty are among world’s top 2% scientists according to the latest Stanford University report. The department's vision and strategic plan, activities, and research may be found at: https://chemeng.mst.edu.
