Faculty Position, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Rutgers University-New Brunswick
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) of the School of Engineering, Rutgers—New Brunswick, is seeking applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor in the area of architectural engineering and construction management. The hire is a part of the Advancing STEM Diversity in Environmental Engineering cluster supported by funds from the Rutgers Presidential Diversity Hiring Initiative. The strategic diversity cluster aims to advance diversity in environmental engineering, specifically in the areas of urban environments, health, climate change, and environmental justice. The anticipated start date of the employment is September 1, 2023.
The faculty search aligns with the strategic directions of the Department and recognition of the need for building collaborative relationships between engineering disciplines and beyond. Of special interest for this search are candidates who explore and develop radically different and cost-effective building and infrastructure design, construction, and maintenance approaches to reduce carbon footprint and improve urban community resilience. The candidates with interest in new building adaptation methods such as active infrastructure and adaptive buildings to protect existing urban communities, especially vulnerable senior care centers, affordable housing, and historically black towns from flooding, heatwaves, hazardous weather, and/or pandemics, using advanced construction methods such as 3D printing, modular construction, and prefabrication to reduce the carbon footprint of the Architectural, Engineering, and Construction industry; are invited to apply.
Applicants should have an undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering or a closely related field. The successful candidate is expected to develop a well-funded research program, play an essential role in the Advancing STEM Diversity in Environmental Engineering cluster, and build collaborative relationships with research programs within the School of Engineering and, other programs inside and outside the University. The successful candidate is also expected to develop and teach new courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels within the Department that incorporate the state of the art knowledge and innovation. Finally, the CEE Department is committed to promoting and maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture and is, thus, interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.
