Professor (all ranks) Processes and Systems for Negative Emission Technologies

Location: Arizona State University – Tempe Campus

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) and the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy (SEMTE) and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seek applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the area of process and systems engineering and modeling for negative emission technologies. SEMTE and SEEBE, two of the seven Fulton Schools, house a vibrant engineering research community with existing expertise in sorbent design; negative emission technologies (see the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions (; CO2 separations; biological CO2 utilization; and electrochemical CO2 conversion (learn more at from experimental and modeling (density functional theory, computational fluid dynamics, and continuum modeling) perspectives. We seek applicants who complement our abilities in these areas to solve grand challenges as part of a community of experts. In support of our Negative Carbon Emissions goal, particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to, quantitative modeling (at either the molecular scale or the process/systems scale) or process/systems designs involving novel approaches to combine CO2 capture and cost/energy-efficient sorbent regeneration with purification, utilization, storage, and integration into the built environment and beyond.

We seek applicants who will contribute to our academic programs, promote transdisciplinary teaching and research, and help the University to achieve its aspirations, including enabling student success, transforming society, valuing entrepreneurship and conducting use-inspired research. Faculty members in the Fulton Schools are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program, adopt effective pedagogical practices in the development and delivery of graduate and undergraduate courses, advise both undergraduate and graduate student research and projects and undertake service activities. 

This search is part of ASU’s engagement with the Arizona’s New Economy Initiative (NEI), a bold effort to ensure that Arizona leads the new economy that will rely on engineering, computing and technology to drive sustainable growth, resilience and opportunities for all. NEI investments in the Fulton Schools of Engineering will grow our world class faculty to accelerate research outcomes and to broaden student access to our programs; will establish Science and Technology Centers to foster the growth of new economy Industries; and will expand experiential learning and workforce training opportunities.

The search is open rank, and appointments will be at the rank commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments beginning August 2022. Although the tenure home may be in any of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, SEMTE and SSEBE are currently the most involved in the interest of this research.


Required qualifications:

• Earned doctorate in Chemical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, or related field by the time of appointment

• Evidence of excellence in research, as appropriate to the candidate’s rank

• Evidence of excellence in teaching, as appropriate to the candidate’s rank

Desired qualifications:  

• Commitment to multidisciplinary teaming and collaborative research

• Publications in leading journals related to the applicant’s field

• Evidence of successful proposal construction and submission to diverse funding agencies, as appropriate to the candidate’s rank

• Demonstrated impact to diversity and inclusion for broadening participation in science and engineering

• Evidence of successful implementation of student-centric teaching and engagement
