Faculty Positions in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Develop and lead a vigorous research program; teach and advise students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; participate actively in the departmental and larger professional community. Applications in all research areas will be considered. We seek candidates that will contribute, through high quality scholarship and teaching, to improve our department’s national standing and visibility.

  • (1) Tenure-track Assistant Professor. Current research in the department encompasses strong efforts in all areas of chemical engineering science, including catalysis, reaction engineering and energy; biomolecular, biochemical, and/or bioprocess engineering; polymers, colloids, and materials; and thermodynamics and transport phenomena. Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related field.
  • (2) Tenure-track Assistant Professor in biomolecular, biochemical, and/or bioprocess engineering. Ph.D. or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related field as well as a demonstrated commitment to diversity and promoting the values of equity and inclusion in the workplace.


THE RIGHT POLYMERS FOR THE JOB: Technology makes fuel cells more powerful, more durable, less expensive

Apr. 08, 2019--Yushan Yan & Bingjun Xu develops technology that makes fuel cells more powerful, more durable, less expensive. Using poly(aryl piperidinium) polymers, the team developed hydroxide exchange membranes and ionomers with favorable properties.

POWERHOUSE CHEMISTRY: UD researchers provide new method to boost clean energy research

Apr. 08, 2019--The powerhouse substances known as catalysts, which are used to accelerate chemical reactions, are key players in these systems. The size and efficiency of fuel cells, for example, could greatly benefit from using high-performance catalysts.


AN EMERGING LEADER IN BIOSECURITY: Chemical engineering professor to participate in highly selective fellowship program

April. 4, 2019--Aditya Kunjapur, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware, has been named to the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security’s Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative fellowship program in 2019.


Future Leaders in Polymers: Two chemical engineering grad students recognized for polymer physics research

Mar. 19, 2019--University of Delaware doctoral students Melody Morris and Thomas Gartner, both of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, were selected as finalists for the American Physical Society (APS) Division of Polymer Physics (DPOLY) Frank J. Padden Jr. Award in 2019.


UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF CATALYSTS: Exploration of metal oxides has potential to drive catalysis research to new heights

Feb. 25, 2019--Recent research conducted by CCEI, published in the newest issue of Nature Catalysis, has further unlocked the mystery on a class of materials that have long been understudied as catalysts: metal oxides. In addition to driving more affordable and stable chemical production, CCEI’s investigation into the nature of metal oxides might potentially lead to the discovery of even better, more selective catalysts.


GOV. CARNEY TOURS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL BUILDING SITE: Part of UD’s STAR Campus, the facility will be a center for research on producing complex medication

Feb. 07, 2019--Sporting white hard hats, bright safety vests and protective goggles, Delaware Gov. John Carney and a small group of officials visited the construction site of the University of Delaware’s Ammon Pinizzotto Biopharmaceutical Innovation Center on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The tour offered a glimpse into the future of growth and innovation at the University.


GradImpact: Improving Battery Performance while Maintaining Safety and Stability

Feb. 01, 2019--Researchers at the University of Delaware-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) and investigators from its partner institutions are working to solve these problems. Their findings report a strategy to create renewable lubricant base oils efficiently from non-food biomass — things like wood, switchgrass and other sustainable, organic waste — and fatty acids, which are present in used vegetable oils and animal fat.
