The successful applicant will benefit from Carnegie Mellon’s interdisciplinary environment and our strengths in environmental, biological, and materials chemistry. Emerging focus areas in the Department include modern data-driven/automated approaches to design and synthesis of new materials. Research that addresses challenges related to the behavior of molecules in complex environments (e.g. catalytic, light-driven and biological processes) are of particular interest. Some envisioned activities include development of molecular-level tools for the environmentally-benign synthesis and lifecycle (preparation, molecular recycling/degradation and remediation) of chemicals, polymers, materials and fuels."
