Position: Faculty candidates for tenured or tenure-track appointments at the assistant, associate, or full professor level in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Institution: Northeastern University - Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Location: Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Deadline: Application review will begin on December 1, 2016
As part of a strategic initiative in the area of Urban Coastal Sustainability and Climate Adaptation, Northeastern University seeks faculty candidates for tenured or tenure-track appointments at the assistant, associate, or full professor level in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering across the broad area of Sustainable Urban Coastal Systems, with particular interest in Coastal Hydrodynamics, Computational Climate Modeling, and Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems. Interested candidates may be considered for joint appointments in the Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences and Marine Science Center, or other university departments commensurate with their areas of expertise. The department is in the midst of a significant, multi-year expansion in size and scope, including faculty, facilities, and programs within several disciplines and across disciplinary boundaries. These positions are part of a series of hires in urban coastal engineering for sustainability and security, global change science, and coastal ecosystems including implications on human health.
Areas of specific interest within Sustainable Urban Coastal Systems include:
Coastal Hydrodynamics related to areas such as computational and environmental fluid mechanics, hydrodynamic model development (e.g., circulation, storm surge, tsunamis, urban flooding), hurricane dynamics, coastal and urban flood risk mitigation and adaptation, coupling of multiple system models (e.g., biological, chemical, ecological and geophysical), and climate or land use change impacts on coastal systems.
Computational Climate Modeling related to areas such as climate modeling or data-intensive climate sciences, atmospheric and land surface modeling, coastal oceanography and circulation modeling, global biogeochemistry, sea level rise or climate change impacts on coastal processes, and adaptation of urban and coastal systems, including coupled natural-engineered-human systems.
Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructure Systems related to areas of civil and environmental coastal systems, including interdependent critical infrastructures and lifeline resilience, design of complex civil engineering systems in the face of global climate challenges, multi-hazard risk assessment of infrastructure systems, network topology optimization and modeling, and sustainable energy solutions.
Qualifications: A Doctorate degree in civil engineering or a related field is required by the start date and demonstrated excellence in research, teaching, and service. Senior-level candidates should have a demonstrated record of developing transformative solutions to global challenges, sustaining a research program with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and translational research, teaching both undergraduate and graduate classes, and being an active, recognized leader nationally and internationally in the discipline.
How to Apply: Visit the College website: http://www.coe.neu.edu/faculty/positions/ and click on Faculty Positions. Applications should be submitted under the position entitled Sustainable Urban Coastal Systems and should include (1) detailed resume, (2) research development statement, (3) teaching statement, (4) copy of one sample journal paper, and (5) list of four references with contact information. Screening of applications begins December 1, 2016 and continues until the position is filled. Questions regarding this position should be directed to Joseph Hebert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
