The Linda and Bipin Doshi Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in Rolla, Missouri is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of bioengineering including but not limited to drug and gene delivery, nanomedicine, biomaterials, biomanufacturing, biopharmaceuticals, and tissue engineering. Candidates at the Assistant Professor rank are preferred; however, candidates with exceptional experience and qualifications may be considered at the rank of Associate Professor.
Missouri S&T’s Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering occupies the new Bertelsmeyer Hall that accommodates state-of-the-art research laboratories related to energy (including multiphase flow and reactors engineering, renewable fuels and batteries), environmental applications including carbon capture and conversion, and biomedical applications such as biomaterials and drug and gene delivery. It also houses recently renovated teaching laboratories and classrooms. The Department received a $10M naming gift from Mr. Bipin and Mrs. Linda Doshi in the fall of 2020, the largest gift to an academic program at S&T. With the gift, three endowed professor positions were created. Currently, the department has 11 faculty members including three AIChE fellows. Six current and former faculty are among world’s top 2% scientists according to the latest Stanford University report. The department's vision and strategic plan, activities, and research may be found at: https://chemeng.mst.edu.

The University and Community
Missouri S&T is one of the nation’s leading research universities with 98-degree programs in 39 disciplines. Founded in 1870 as one of the first technological institutions west of the Mississippi. Located about 100 miles west of St. Louis in the multicultural community of Rolla, Missouri S&T is an accessible, safe and friendly campus surrounded by Ozarks scenery. Missouri S&T offers degrees in engineering, the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business, with master’s and Ph.D. programs available in many of the science and engineering programs and master’s degrees in biological sciences, business administration and technical communication. With nearly 9,000 students enrolled on campus and online, Missouri S&T is big enough to accommodate a diverse population, yet small enough for individuals to build high visibility, impactful careers.
Missouri S&T’s Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, the campus, and the greater University of Missouri System are deeply committed to inclusion and valuing diversity. S&T has undertaken a number of initiatives to improve campus life and work life balance for its faculty and staff (see http://hr.mst.edu). Missouri S&T seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples.
