The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (IAFSE) at Arizona State University (ASU) and the Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC) within the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seek applicants for a tenured or tenure track faculty position in the field of Construction Management or Construction Engineering.  Appointments will be made at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor, commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments. Successful applicants should have a research and scholarly focus that include, but are not limited to, innovations in technologies and construction methods, robotics, data analytics & modeling, construction workforce/labor, safety and risk, and resilient & sustainable infrastructure construction for extreme environments. The individual will complement or align with the skills and portfolio of existing construction management and engineering faculty.




Job responsibilities include developing and maintaining a scholarly externally funded research program, advising and mentoring graduate students, and delivering in-class and/or online instruction at the undergraduate and graduate level in construction management and engineering.  Other responsibilities include supervising undergraduate design and research projects, participating in course and program assessment, and working with student organizations and competition teams. 




Appointment at associate or full professor level will require a candidate to have considerable experience in Construction Management or Construction Engineering education, a demonstrated commitment to scholarship and research, and an ability to maintain and expand the Del E.

NEI investments in the Fulton Schools of Engineering will grow our world class faculty to accelerate research outcomes and to broaden student access to our programs; will establish Science and Technology Centers to foster the growth of new economy industries; and will expand experiential learning and workforce training opportunities.
