The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rowan University is seeking dynamic applicants for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to: teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels, guide an active scholarly research program involving both undergraduate and graduate students, obtain funding from competitive external funding agencies and engage in relevant service activities.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of academic and research programs and to contribute to the research community. Our particular emphasis in this year’s search focus is in two main areas 1) environmental engineering - (exploring new ideas in water quality in areas such as water and wastewater treatment, chemical and/or microbial public health aspects, and microbial ecology in engineered systems ; 2) water resources engineering with focus on urban/regional water resources management, watershed modeling, computational fluid mechanics, river mechanics, sediment transport, and environmental dispersion. Candidates with exceptional credentials and a promising research agenda in other areas such as structural, geotechnical and transportation engineering will also be considered.
Candidates must demonstrate excellent communication skills and strong commitment to excellence in teaching, research and student mentoring. The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain a strongly-funded research program and collaborate, as needed, with multi-disciplinary groups of faculty and professionals, including personnel at the South Jersey Technology Park and/or the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. The successful candidate is also expected to apply innovative teaching techniques and/or conduct research in the scholarship of teaching.
A Ph.D. in civil engineering and a baccalaureate degree from an ABET? accredited engineering program (or equivalent) are required. Preference will be given to candidates with professional engineering licenses or the qualifications and experience to apply for a PE license.
The anticipated start date for this civil engineering faculty position will be September 1, 2018.
Applications will be accepted through March 31, 2018 but preference will be given to candidates whose application is received before December 15, 2017. Applications should include a letter of application, curriculum vita, a statement of research interests and plans, a statement of teaching interests and plans including efforts to diversify the field of engineering, and contact information for three references.
The story of the Rowan University College of Engineering has a humble beginning that can be traced back to 1953, with the invention by Henry Rowan of the first induction furnace in his home garage. He went on to create Inductotherm, which would become the worldwide leader in induction technology. The generous gift of $100 million by Mr. Rowan in 1992 led to the formation of the College of Engineer...ing and its first freshman class in 1996 under the leadership of Dr. James H. Tracey as founding dean. Dr. Dianne Dorland began her tenure as dean in 2000, transforming a fledgling program into one that is established and well respected today. Dr. Dorland returns to the faculty this fall as a champion for engineering education reform, pursuing her passion for teaching.
