  • Chemical and Biological Engineering
  • Assistant/Associate Professor
    Full details Position Summary
    The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Colorado State University seeks applications and nominations for a tenure-track chemical and biological engineering faculty position at the assistant or associate professor level. The successful candidate will develop, or will have developed, a well-funded research program and actively participate in education and scholarship activities. This search is focused on applicants with interests and expertise in microbiome engineering applied to human, animal, plant or soil biology or environmental systems. Microbiome engineering is an emerging field that aims to move beyond characterization of microbiomes, to manipulate, recombine, and control the collective properties, behaviors, and functions of interdependent microbial communities (i.e., viruses, bacteria, archaea, and microbial eukaryotes, including fungi). 
    
    This position is part of a University-wide microbiome cluster hire of faculty focused on the functional and structural aspects of microbiomes, and their ecological relevance and applications to human, animal, plant and soil biology and environmental systems. Faculty hired in this cluster will complement and extend ongoing microbiome research in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering, the Warner College of Natural Resources, and the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Agricultural Sciences, Health and Human Sciences, and Natural Sciences. The candidate hired for this position will be expected to collaborate with other microbiome researchers across campus to enhance interdisciplinary microbiome research.
