Faculty Positions

The Departments of Chemical Engineering (ChemE) and Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) at the University of Washington invite applications for one full-time tenure-track faculty position (9-month service periods) that will be jointly appointed in the two departments. The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of high impact research that is advancing the battery chemistry and materials fields, as well as an outstanding scholarly vision for innovative research and education as a faculty member. We are primarily focused on hires at the rank of Associate or Full Professors. Applications received by January 1, 2016 will receive full consideration, though the position will remain open until filled.

There are no faculty positions currently open. Please check back in the future for new openings.

The Washington Research Foundation has provided a six-year gift of $6.74 million to support nine new faculty hires, six postdoctoral researchers and the creation of a new experimental manufacturing facility on campus that will help move discoveries from the laboratory to the marketplace. This investment in the CEI is truly transformational.”
