The Albert Nerken School of Engineering at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art seeks outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in civil engineering. Exceptional candidates with additional experience will be considered at the senior Assistant Professor level. The school is consistently ranked among the top ten undergraduate engineering institutions in the nation and is focused on providing an exceptional engineering education through an intimate experience characterized by small class sizes and a student-faculty ratio of 7:1. We value interdisciplinary approaches and the intersection of art, architecture, humanities, and engineering. Our students and faculty collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to create innovative solutions to societal challenges. The successful candidate will be dedicated to teaching and mentoring undergraduate students in a rigorous project-oriented and supportive academic environment and engaging undergraduate and master's students in research and scholarly activities. The ideal candidate should contribute to Cooper Union’s strategic priority of educational innovation and leading-edge pedagogies. The candidate is expected to collaborate with faculty and staff to develop innovative curricular models, modern pedagogical paradigms, and evidence-based assessment techniques.

The candidate is required to have an earned doctorate in Civil Engineering with a specialization in geotechnical engineering and should either have or be willing to obtain professional licensure. Within geotechnical engineering, areas of particular interest include sustainability and sustainable geomaterials, natural hazards engineering, and computational geomechanics. The candidate should be capable of teaching broadly across the undergraduate civil engineering curriculum, including courses such as soil mechanics (including lab components), foundation engineering and design, sustainable and green infrastructure design, and project management. Candidates would be expected to embrace emerging technologies in civil engineering such as augmented and virtual reality and 3D printed structures and models.

The Cooper Union was founded in 1859 by philanthropist Peter Cooper to provide an education "equal to the best" to all who qualify, regardless of race, religion, gender, wealth or social status. Today, The Cooper Union provides a rigorous professional education in the Schools of Art, Architecture, and Engineering, including a broad curriculum offered by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Fostering a culture of collaboration among a diverse student body and faculty, The Cooper Union teaches students that art, architecture, and engineering have cultural, environmental, and ethical contexts and consequences. As students develop their professional abilities, they recognize their responsibility to advance science and art and to create a sustainable future. We encourage and are interested in engaging with candidates from a diversity of experiences and perspectives with the talent to challenge our students to maximize their learning potential.

  • A cover letter. To assist the search committee, all cover letters should address your interest in The Cooper Union and how you envision your teaching and research interests will contribute to the department and the institution.
  • Current curriculum vitae.
  • A statement about your teaching philosophy: describe principles, practices, or experiences that inform the way you teach (typically 1-2 pages).
  • A statement about your research interests, including potential research projects for undergraduates (typically 1-2 pages).
  • A statement about diversity and inclusion: describe your interests, experiences, and future plans for promoting diversity and inclusion in engineering (typically 1-2 pages).
  • Contact information for at least three references. At least one reference should be able to specifically address teaching.

Nominations should be sent to hr@cooper.edu and questions may be sent to Department Chair Cosmas Tzavelis at cosmas.tzavelis@cooper.edu. Review of applications is ongoing with a priority deadline of November 1, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
