PROFESSOR OF PRACTICE IN THE DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL AND BIOMOLECULAR 
ENGINEERING, LEHIGH UNIVERSITY


The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Lehigh
University seeks applications for a nontenure-track Professor of
Practice faculty position with a preferred starting date of January 1,
2015 or earlier. The primary responsibility for this Professor of
Practice will be the two semester capstone senior Process Design
course. The design course covers both steady-state and dynamics/control
in an integrated design setting. The course requires co-ordination of
lecture material and invited speakers on specialized topics; and
management of multiple industrially guided capstone design team 
projects for CHE seniors over a two semester period. Additional
responsibilities include involvement in the Unit Operations Laboratory, 
industrial outreach for the Opportunities for Student Innovation (OSI)
program in CHE, serving as academic advisor for CHE majors and primary
liaison for industry relations with the department. We anticipate the 
candidate to be strongly involved in curriculum enhancements, 
professional development programs for students, and to provide a strong
and visible representation in Chemical Engineering and related
professional organizations such as AIChE, Center for Chemical Process 
Safety (CCPS) and ABET.

A doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering, prior industrial or academic 
experience relevant to teaching design, and working knowledge of
process control are strongly preferred.

The campus has strong interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research
and educational programs in a range of topics that include 
bioengineering, catalysis, materials, energy technologies, and 
nanotechnology, and industrial systems. In particular, the candidate is
expected to interact closely with the Integrated Product Design and
Technical Entrepreneurship programs and translate relevant best
practices to the capstone process design course.

Lehigh University is one of seven recipients in 2010 of an NSF ADVANCE
Institutional Transformation Grant to enhance recruitment, retention,
and the advancement of women faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics (STEM) fields at Lehigh.

Candidates should submit electronically a cover letter highlighting
their main achievements, curriculum vitae, a detailed statement of
their teaching philosophy and professional interests, and the names and
addresses of four (4) references using the on-line application form at
