The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University seeks outstanding applicants for a tenure-track appointment at the assistant professor level, effective as early as September 1, 2022. The search is open to candidates specializing in any area of chemical engineering.

The Jui Dasgupta Outstanding AI Award for the 2020-2021 academic year went to Nicholas Caggiano, Drew Carson and Madeleine Chalifoux.
Jonathan Conway, an expert in plant-microbe interactions, has joined the Princeton faculty as an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering.
A study published Sep. 22 in Nature details how an established physics theory governing bubble and droplet formation led to a new understanding of the principles organizing the contents of living cells. The work marks a seismic shift in researchers' ability both to understand and control the complex soft materials within our cells.
The Department of Energy has awarded funding to a team of Princeton chemists and engineers as part of its investment in technological solutions to reduce plastic waste. The team includes four CBE faculty members, who received funding for a project that seeks to expand foundational research on a polymer discovered earlier this year.
Princeton researchers have developed a new way to make fuel from cellulose—Earth's most abundant organic compound, found in all plant cells—speeding up a notoriously slow chemical process and in some cases doubling energy yields over comparable methods.
Researchers at Princeton University have built the world's smallest mechanically interlocked biological structure, a deceptively simple two-ring chain made from tiny strands of amino acids called peptides. A paper published August 23 in Nature Chemistry detailed a library of such structures made in their lab—two interlocked rings, a ring on a...
Princeton University will lead a new multi-university National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Corps (I-Corps) hub to foster entrepreneurial startups based on fundamental research in science and engineering, while broadening opportunities for groups underrepresented in entrepreneurship. NSF will dedicate $15 million to establish the I-Corps...
Lynn Loo, the Theodora D. ’78 and William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering and professor of chemical and biological engineering, has taken a two-year leave from the University and stepped down as director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment to join the newly founded Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation, based in...
Sophia Martinez is one of 19 CBE undergraduates to secure University-funded research positions this summer—nearly double the number from last year and a record number for the department. The increase comes as 15 months of pandemic-related public health restrictions give way to normal re-search operations across the campus. For undergraduates, the...
