Cluster Hire at the Interface of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and Computation for Engineering

As part of the cluster hire at the interface of artificial intelligence, big data, and computation, the Department of Chemical Engineering at Michigan Technological University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level, however, senior level individuals with exceptional records will also be considered. Applicants for the position must have an earned PhD degree in chemical engineering or closely related discipline. Research thrust areas of interest include the department’s recent initiative in one of the following fields: (i) first-principles simulations of the molecular scale interactions in materials and in reacting systems, (ii) big data combined with a statistics-based expert system and process simulation using artificial intelligence and/or machine learning tools, and (iii) systems optimization techniques to improve supply chain mechanisms and logistics, while reducing costs. These initiatives are aligned with those being undertaken at the College level. We seek candidates who will help define their discipline by creating and exploiting new digital tools and techniques in the development of their research programs and curriculum development. Successful candidate will be expected to develop externally funded research program in the area of interest while leading collaboration with other faculty, engage in both undergraduate and graduate teaching and contribute to professional service.
