The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at KAIST invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at all levels. Applicants are welcome in all areas of chemical and biomolecular engineering, but preferences will be given to those applicants with backgrounds and research experiences in energy, catalysis, polymer, and biotechnology. We have multiple positions available and will accept the applications until September 15, 2018 for the first round of review. The review of the applications will begin immediately upon receipt with the aim of extending on-site interview offers by November 1, 2018. However, we will receive the applications continuously thereafter and until these positions are filled, they will be open.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering or a closely related field by the time of appointment. Applicants must demonstrate strong research potential and commitment to teaching undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates with established track records in research and teaching will be considered for a tenured position. Foreign candidates and female candidates are encouraged to apply.
KAIST offers a competitive salary and a start-up research fund. In addition, all faculty members have joint appointments with KAIST Institutes, with expanded opportunities for interdisciplinary research and funding. KAIST attracts nation-wide top students pursuing B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees. Currently, around 400 undergraduate and 380 graduate students are enrolled in the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering department. The normal teaching load is one course per semester.
KAIST provides faculty housing for the first five years, free of charge for the first two years and for some minimal charge after that. KAIST is committed to increasing the number of female and non-Korean faculty members. Non-Korean faculty members are not required to learn Korean, although some basic Korean language skill will be helpful in everyday life.
Applicants should send the following application documents to the Head of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (email@example.com):
application form including research and teaching plans (English Download)
three recommendation letters including one from the thesis advisor
copies of five key publications
other documents that may support the application
Review of the application will begin immediately when all the required documents arrive. KAIST is an equal opportunity employer. Please visit the web site for detailed information on available positions at KAIST.
