Through the recently announced $150 million investment in research excellence, Rice University, located in Houston, Texas, seeks new faculty members at all ranks, starting as early as July 1, 2017, in the broad area of molecular nanotechnology (MolNan). Successful candidates will drive a dynamic, innovative, and independent research program and will excel in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, while embracing Rice's culture of excellence and diversity. MolNan faculty hires are expected to make original and impactful contributions in nanotechnology and in chemical engineering as an enabling discipline. The search will consider applicants from all engineering and science disciplines, with emphasis on those with research programs in sustainable energy (carbon-based, electron-based, water-based), catalysis, and polymers/soft-matter. The ideal candidate will pursue research with strong intellectual overlap with chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and other related disciplines.
Candidates should submit the following: (1) cover letter; (2) curriculum vitae; (3) research plan (not to exceed six pages including figures); (4) teaching plan; and the names, professional affiliations, and email addresses of three references.
Applications will be evaluated beginning on October 1, 2016. Those submitted by November 30, 2016 will receive full consideration. Later applications may still be considered at the discretion of the faculty search committee. Recommendation of candidates or questions regarding this opportunity can be directed to the committee at RiceMolNanSearch@rice.edu.
