Faculty Positions in UCLA Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering with

Institute of the Environment & Sustainability

and The B. John Garrick Institute for Risk Sciences

Building upon UCLA’s commitment to foster an inclusive environment and promote the success of underrepresented students, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering & Applied Science with the Institute of the Environment & Sustainability and the Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences invite applications for two open rank tenure-track faculty positions.

Tenure Track Faculty in Sustainable and Resilient Energy Systems

Apply at: https://apptrkr.com/2720953

Review of applications will begin on January 16, 2022, and continue until the position is filled.

We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise related to energy systems infrastructure. Of interest is research on methods and means for performance optimization, resilience, and security of existing and emerging (renewable) energy systems. While the focus is not the science and technology of energy generation, the candidate’s research should take an end-to-end integrated perspective of energy systems including storage (fuel cells, batteries, pumped hydro, etc.), renewables (solar, wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal, biomass energy, etc.), emerging energy systems (e.g., net-zero energy cars and buildings), innovative systems integration (e.g., vehicle to grid), and corresponding infrastructure for transmission and distribution. The ideal candidate’s research will have a comprehensive view of the resilience and performance of energy systems considering climate adaptation, natural hazards, and socioeconomic dimensions.

Applicants for the positions must have a demonstrated record of excellence in, or show exceptional promise for, high-quality research, teaching, and professional development. The successful candidate will be expected to advance their active mentoring activities and participate in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (such as our Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity, our Women in Engineering program, and our student organizations listed at (https://samueli.ucla.edu/equity-diversity-and-inclusion/). The successful candidate for this position will enjoy this rich scholarly environment in the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering as well as research support from the Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences and multiple affiliated research centers.

Open Rank Joint Faculty Position in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability

Review of applications will begin on January 17, 2022 and continue until the positions are filled

The Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) are particularly interested in candidates with an expertise on the relationship between society and environmental systems (both engineered and natural), with a particular focus on energy and water systems. Applications for appointments at any level (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) will be considered. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering, or a closely related field, with a track record of publications and collaborations with social scientists, and an ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and graduate courses at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.

Applicants for the positions must have a demonstrated record of excellence in, or show exceptional promise for, high-quality research, teaching, and professional development. In addition, applicants must have a demonstrated record of interest in, and commitment to, the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations, including women. The successful candidate will be expected to advance their active mentoring activities and participate in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (such as our Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity, our Women in Engineering program, and our student organizations listed at https://samueli.ucla.edu/equity-diversity-and-inclusion/). Teaching and service expectations will not exceed those of other faculty positions. Applications will be considered at all levels, with a preference for appointments at the Assistant Professor level.
