Job Description: 

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, announces the opening of a tenure-track faculty position in Environmental Engineering.  Preference will be given to candidates falling into one or more of the areas below, and to those at the assistant professor level, but exceptional candidates in any area and at any level will be considered.

Interdisciplinary:  Especially with application expertise in one or more areas relating to priorities of the School, namely smart cities, sustainable communities, and resilient infrastructure systems, particularly with respect to experimental research that addresses existing and future infrastructure needs in the areas of environmental fluid mechanics/hydraulics, at the interface between the built and natural environments (see http://www.ce.gatech.edu/research); and the core research areas of the Institute (see http://www.research.gatech.edu/areas).

Environmental Engineering: Candidates from all areas of environmental engineering are encouraged to apply. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, bioprocess engineering and microbial processes for energy and resource recovery; global-scale air quality modeling and exposure assessment; urban infrastructure and sensing technologies for clean water; and sustainability.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech has approximately 680 undergraduate students, 470 graduate students, and 52 tenure-track faculty.  The 2018 US News and World Report rankings puts both the CE and EnvE undergraduate programs at #2 in the country.  The corresponding graduate programs are ranked #2 and #7, respectively (https://ce.gatech.edu/prospective/profile-and-rankings).

Candidates should have completed a doctoral degree in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, or related field by August 15, 2018, and will have either demonstrated, or shown a clear potential, for creative and independent research that would lead to a strong, extramurally funded research program and national and international recognition.  The teaching load will include both undergraduate and graduate courses. Screening of applications will begin November 15, 2017.  Recruitment will continue until the position is filled. 

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one-page statement of research interests, one-page statement of teaching experience and interests, and names/contact information of four references in a single PDF file to: FacultySearch@ce.gatech.edu. Please format the file name as {lastname,initials}_Faculty_Search_App.pdf and include “CEE Faculty Search” and your area of specialization (e.g., “Structures”) in the subject line of the e-mail.

The Georgia Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, and applications from women and under-represented minorities are encouraged.
