The Northeastern Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology invites faculty applicants for a tenure-track position as Assistant/Associate Professor in biomaterials and/or bioinspired materials chemistry. Candidates are sought with research interests in emerging sub-areas in this area that can both close gaps of needs and strengthen existing expertise within the Department, the College of Science, or the wider University, and interfaced with the local academic and biotechnology environment. Any individual with a biomaterials focus is encouraged to apply. Areas of strength at Northeastern include the design of synthetic or natural materials for applications in biosensors, tissue engineering, drug delivery, implantable/assistive devices, cancer immunotherapy, as well as sub-areas in bioinspired materials that include peptide or biopolymer self-assembly, DNA nanotechnology, bio-inspired photonics, and additive manufacturing.
The potential hire should develop research cross-cutting the fields of chemistry, chemical biology, and materials science. Specifically, the ideal hire should strengthen ties between the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, the Department of Physics, and the Department of Bioengineering, building upon existing strengths in bioimaging, biosensors, and bionanotechnology.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemistry or a related field by the start of the appointment and a record of research commensurate with rank.
Qualified candidates should have experience in, or be able to demonstrate a commitment to, working with diverse student populations and/or in a culturally diverse work and educational environment. The College of Science is strongly committed to fostering excellence through diversity and enthusiastically welcomes nominations and applications from members of groups that have been, and continue to be, underrepresented in academia.
All application materials must be submitted through this online recruitment system, where applicants should be prepared to upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement, a statement on diversity and inclusion (to be added under “other”), and up to two representative publications. Applicants should also be prepared to provide information, including an email address, for three references. The references will be contacted upon request.
