The Chemical Engineering Faculty Jobs List: 6 positions

The Chemical Engineering Faculty Jobs List has 6 positions. It is curated by Lilian Josephson (@lljosephson), who says:
The new cycle has begun for the chem e's! This year we will try to utilize the list further by circulating among the professors, as well as using the hashtags #facultychemEjobs and #MeettheCandidatesChE2020.
 This post will serve as the open thread for this year's search.

  1. Thank you, CJ and Lilian, for maintaining this list; you are saints. A quick accessibility comment -- the fact that you've frozen so many rows of cells makes it nearly impossible to read this spreadsheet on smaller screens. Maybe consider unfreezing the cells? Thanks!

  4. I have applied to 20+ ChemE jobs and have yet to hear anything. Hoping for some good news before Christmas, otherwise... 2020 the great destroyer of naive dreams.

    1. Not yet! I recall someone from the Chem thread saying they were scheduling way back in October, but my guess is that was a one-off and not reflective of their entire search. Chair of the GATech ChE search is Ryan Lively, you could always inquire.

  10. I received email asking RL for the MIT DMSE position this week. Their application deadline was Nov30. Does this mean anything or it's just same for everyone who applied?

    1. Did they send that as a response of your inquiry or on their own?

      Delete
    2. Did they ask for Rec Letters?

      Delete
    3. They sent it on their own, and I didn't hear anything about letters requested, so I assume they did not.

      Delete
    4. I'm 4:35, just received rejection letter (way nicer than others, btw). Looks like they are going through batches of candidates, or trimming down the pool, and sending out letters at every stage.

  21. I know it's a strange year and it is difficult to know anything, but do you think that we are in one of those silent periods, or for this cycle we can reasonably say that it's done?

    1. Also wondering this. The only places I've heard of people interviewing at (in any capacity) in chem eng so far is MIT, University of Washington, JHU, and Georgia Tech. Not sure if this is because my colleagues aren't traditional engineers and thus aren't competitive, or if it's because the engineering cycle is very delayed this year.

  22. I am curious about University of Washington candidate. Any insight on their field? I can't see their seminars posted...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My colleague told me their seminars aren't being publicly posted. Not sure of field, but the hiring ad states its a cluster hire in big-data analysis and high-throughput imaging.

    1. Was curious about penn state as well. Applied in October, had a request for letters right before Christmas, but nothing since then. My field is catalysis and I had some traction elsewhere so thought I might hear something from psu since theyre starting a catalysis center. their posted seminar schedule doesn't include any faculty candidates. would appreciate if anyone knows the status of their search.

  33. Asking again. has anyone heard from UCLA in any capacity?

    1. Have not heard anything. I have applied to three openings at UCLA (related to bioengineering). 2 of those openings didn't ask for LORs at submission. And my writers haven't mention receiving any letter requests... anybody else have letters requested?

      Delete
    2. It's strange that no one has heard. I applied to 3 openings too and didn't hear anything. Same with experience with a few other people I know. I wonder if they cancelled their searches, or if their candidates don't frequent this site.

  34. Anything on Texas Tech?
