The College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (CNMS) at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) invites applications for a part-time adjunct faculty position for a graduate Biotechnology (BTEC) class being taught in Fall 2021 at its branch campus at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Maryland.
The Master of Professional Studies in Biotechnology educates students on biotechnology management and operational principles, to develop the next generation of leadership in the biotechnology and biopharma space.
Currently, the BTEC program is looking for an adjunct faculty member to teach upstream bioprocessing. This course is heavily reliant on chemical engineering principles, covering basic process engineering, from the milliliter to the kiloliter scale. Topics relevant to the commercial bioprocesses used in the food, pharmaceutical and waste treatment industries will be introduced. Both upstream processes (e.g., fermentation, cell growth, energetics, mass transfer and enzyme kinetics) and downstream processes (chromatographic separations, ultrafiltration, and waste treatment) will be covered.
BTEC classes are typically held once a week for a fifteen-week semester, in the evenings (6-8:30 pm), to accommodate the schedule of the students.
To apply, applicants must have a graduate degree in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, or a related professional field (Ph.D. or other terminal degree preferred). Experience in the biotechnology industry, government, or academia conducting research related to bioprocessing is strongly preferred. Previous university teaching experience is helpful though not required
To apply: Please submit a cover letter, complete CV and teaching statement via Interfolio. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. For best consideration please apply before April 15, 2021.
