Announcement of Faculty Openings for
Chemical Engineering Program
Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering
SBASSE, LUMS

Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) has decided to introduce a new program in Chemical Engineering next year. Faculty positions are available at all ranks, including Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor levels. 

LUMS, established in Lahore in 1985, is one of the premier educational institutions of Pakistan. It is committed to excellence and is slowly emerging as a leading University in the South East Asia. The Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE) at LUMS is a vibrant institution with a vision of “no-boundary” multidisciplinary research and education: see https://sbasse.lums.edu.pk/.  SBASSE aspires to accomplish a paradigm shift in Science & Engineering education in Pakistan by building strong programs in the basic sciences and engineering. The early success of SBASSE is evident from the quality of its graduates and their placements in the top-notch organizations and the graduate programs around the world. A further indicator of its success is the research output in terms of high quality publications in prominent journals by faculty and mentoring of students. The SBASSE was launched in 2008 with programs in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineer. The School offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in all these disciplines.

Following the recommendation of School’s Advisory Board (https://sbasse.lums.edu.pk/advisory-board), the University Management has approved the expansion of the Department of Chemistry to the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering with a vision of establishing a research-intensive science-based Chemical Engineering program to educate tomorrow’s leaders in modern Chemical Engineering and to support Pakistan’s growing chemical industry. We have faculty openings for both junior and senior level faculty members. The senior level faculty appointee is expected to take a strong leadership role in building and guiding the Chemical Engineering program within the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Successful candidates will have a unique opportunity to lead in the establishment of a new accredited BS Chemical Engineering program that covers the traditional basics with an emphasis on engineering science and modern Chemical Engineering practices. The program will also evolve in the future to include graduate level education at the MS and PhD level. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Applicants must possess a PhD in Chemical Engineering with a strong publication record and commitment to both world-class research and creative and effective undergraduate and graduate teaching.  Newly appointed faculty will benefit from the existing state of the art research environment already established within SBASSE. Compensation will be commensurate with experience and position, and successful candidates will also be provided generous startup research funding. LUMS is an equal opportunity employer that offers an excellent work environment for professional growth. Candidates wishing to join should submit their application as a single pdf file including a cover letter, an updated curriculum vitae listing the names of three professional referees, a research statement, and a statement on teaching philosophy via email to:
