Tenure-Track Faculty Position at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
and the Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering at the Florida A&M
University – Florida State University College of Engineering

The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) and the Department of
Chemical & Biomedical Engineering (CBE) at the Florida A&M University (FAMU)-
Florida State University (FSU) College of Engineering invites applications
from highly qualified individuals for a faculty position at the NHMFL with an
academic home as a tenured or tenure-track faculty member in CBE through
Florida State University. We are seeking faculty candidates for an associate
professor position, however, exceptional candidates at other ranks will be

The NHMFL is the world's premier magnet laboratory with state-of-the-art high
magnetic field facilities and has a history in development and application of
ultra-high field NMR and MRI/S magnets and instrumentation. The MR User
Facility hosts hundreds of users from around the world each year. We are
seeking candidates with expertise and research in solid-state NMR for analysis
of biological and biochemical systems (biosolids and/or biomaterials) although
other application areas of NMR may be considered. The candidate will be
expected to lead research efforts and user support at the NHMFL in solid-state
NMR, and be a full academic member with teaching duties in CBE. Successful
candidates are expected to develop research programs that are recognized
internationally with significant and sustained external funding, incorporate
interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers across campus and through the
NHMFL user program, and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in
education. Teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and supervising
undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral researchers are expected. In
addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the
barriers preventing full participation of members from historically
underrepresented and marginalized student communities in higher education.

CBE has a dynamic group of faculty members actively involved in research
encompassing various areas of biomedical engineering, chemical engineering,
and materials science and engineering. Several faculty members from CBE have
laboratories and are affiliated with the NHMFL performing research in NMR and
MRI. Successful candidates will have many opportunities to interact and
collaborate with other programs at FSU including the College of Medicine,
Institute of Molecular Biophysics, the Department of Chemistry and
Biochemistry, and the Department of Physics and the FAMU College of Pharmacy &
Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The NHMFL is operated for the National Science Foundation by a collaboration
of institutions comprising Florida State University, the University of
Florida, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The FAMU-FSU College of
Engineering is the unique combination of two outstanding universities with
overlapping but distinct missions - the nation's top Historically Black
College/University and a Tier-1 top 20 public research university.
Candidates must possess an earned Ph.D. in chemical or biomedical engineering,
or a closely related discipline, and demonstrate documented potential for
outstanding research, leadership, and education.

Applicants should submit the following in a single PDF file to:
1. A cover letter
2. A full curriculum vitae
3. A 2 to 3-page research statement. This statement should clearly
indicate how the proposed research efforts will connect to other efforts in
the NHMFL and CBE.
4. A one-page teaching statement
5. A statement on diversity and inclusion plans and experiences
6. No more than three selected publications for review
7. The names and contact information of four potential references
8. An Equal Employment Opportunity Survey for Faculty Applicants

Any questions about the position should be directed to Dr. Bruce Locke, Search
Committee Chair, at locke@eng.famu.fsu.edu. Application review will begin
April 15, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. The appointment
is expected to begin August 2022. Additional information about both
universities and the department may be found at http://www.eng.famu.fsu.edu
