Job Description

The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at West Virginia University invites applications for a non-tenure track teaching faculty position in chemical engineering. Applicants will be considered at the rank of Teaching Assistant or Teaching Associate Professor. This is a nine-month, non-tenure track faculty rank position that is eligible for promotion and merit raises with contract lengths of 6 years and 9 years upon promotion to associate and full teaching professor, respectively. The position anticipates a level of effort of 80% assigned to teaching and 20% assigned to departmental service.

Requirements include an earned Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a closely related discipline and a B.S. in chemical engineering at the time of appointment. The B.S. degree should be from an ABET accredited institution in the US or the candidate should possess at least three years of experience teaching undergraduates at such an institution. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to teach traditional, core chemical engineering courses mainly at the undergraduate level, advise students and assist with the ABET accreditation process. Candidates for the rank of Teaching Associate Professor must have a sustained record of outstanding teaching and service for a minimum period of 5 years at an ABET accredited institution.

Responsibilities include teaching at the undergraduate level, assisting in the ABET accreditation process, engaging in professional service to the Department and College, advising students, and participating in professional development activities that advance the engineering education field by making presentations at national meetings and authoring papers in education journals. The development of a limited research program in the general area of education research either alone or in conjunction with existing faculty in the Department and College is also encouraged.
