Description

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for a full time, non-tenured, renewable faculty position in Biochemistry/Biomolecular Engineering with a start date of September 1, 2019. New York University (NYU) is one of the top private universities in the United States. We have an illustrious past as Brooklyn Poly and NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.

Our mission is to excel in research, teaching and entrepreneurship. We aim to inspire and educate engineers for the 21st century. We are committed to quality, integrity, and respect for each other. We take pride in our high numbers of women students and students who are the first in their family to go to college. We seek faculty who have a real passion for a culturally diverse environment. Tandon belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), which assists with dual-career searches.

We foster innovation and entrepreneurship that make a difference in the world:

  • We support four “future lab” business incubators that connect our students and faculty to today’s innovation economy.
  • We collaborate closely with other universities throughout NYC.
  • We maintain strong partnerships with NY city and state governments and with industry and corporate communities.

With NYU's unrivaled global network of campuses, we promote a truly global engineering education. We are deeply committed to teaching and learning, and we lead in online education and in K-12 STEM outreach. Our students conduct Vertically Integrated Research projects and participate in an extensive undergraduate summer research program.
