Position Description: The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate or Full Professor rank faculty appointment in the School of Engineering & Applied Science with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024. This search is a partnership between the CEE and the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture (YCNCC). Areas of interest include research related to climate change with a focus on the design and characterization of natural or engineered processes for greenhouse gas emission reductions and removal, as well as carbon capture, storage, and valorization. These areas complement the traditional strengths of the environmental engineering field in inorganic aquatic chemistry, (electro)chemical and microbial process engineering, atmospheric sciences/chemistry, materials and membrane sciences, and green engineering, and reflect the focus of YCNCC, which is to foster research to create reliable and scalable strategies to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations while leveraging co-benefits. While the appointment will be in Environmental Engineering, candidates are expected to play a critical role in the development and success of the YCNCC (https://naturalcarboncapture.yale.edu/).
Qualifications: Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in environmental engineering or a related discipline at the time of hire and will be expected to teach and mentor students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, and to facilitate interdisciplinary research and contribute to building an inclusive and equitable academic environment. Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, LGBTQ community members, and persons from racial/ethnic groups historically under-represented in engineering and the environmental sciences.
Application Instructions: Applications should include a cover letter with a discussion of how the candidate’s work advances the mission of YCNCC specifically through environmental engineering; a CV; three representative publications; research, teaching, and diversity statements; and the names and email addresses of three references. All applications should be submitted through Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/126993. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until November 1, 2023. Please address questions to Julie.Zimmerman@yale.edu.
