The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering at Rowan University seeks a collaborative and innovative leader to serve as the next head of the Department of Chemical Engineering.
The Chemical Engineering Department has a well-established and nationally recognized undergraduate education program and is seeking to expand its graduate research focus. The rapidly growing PhD program and recent facilities expansion and renovation will support this endeavor. The successful candidate will lead the Chemical Engineering Department in achieving the growth of the department’s graduate program, research activity and external funding while maintaining and enhancing the ongoing core mission of delivering a first-class undergraduate education. Further information about the College/Department is available at https://engineering.rowan.edu/.
The new Department Head is expected to have demonstrable experience in managing academic programs, working with faculty, staff, students, alumni, industry, other administration officials, and government funding agencies.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree in chemical engineering or a closely related field. The successful candidate should also possess an outstanding record of leadership, undergraduate and graduate teaching, student mentoring and advising, and a sustained and successful externally funded research program to warrant an appointment at the rank of Professor with tenure in the department.
