Mississippi State University is accepting applications for two faculty positions in the Richard A. Rula School of Civil and Environmental Engineering within the Bagley College of Engineering.  The appointment is anticipated to begin August 2023 at the assistant professor level, though exceptionally qualified candidates will be considered for a higher academic rank.  Candidates are sought who compliment the school’s research and education mission in two positions:


ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (tenure-track) – The ideal candidate would have expertise in innovative construction methods and techniques. Utilities and trenchless technologies, especially innovations in those areas, are of primary interest.


ASSISTANT CLINICAL PROFESSOR – The ideal candidate would be able to teach a diverse array of courses with primary emphasis being courses in transportation, construction materials, and/or geotechnical engineering. This position is devoted mostly to teaching.


Successful candidates will have an earned B.S. and Ph.D., or all but dissertation, in an appropriate engineering discipline from an institution offering ABET-accredited degrees in that discipline.  Professional and academic experience is highly desirable.  The Assistant Professor candidate should have a potential for sustaining a vigorous externally-funded research program and a dynamic portfolio of graduate and undergraduate educational competencies. The Assistant Clinical Professor candidate should have a demonstrated potential for teaching.  Preference will be given to candidates with a Professional Engineering license.  


The school has approximately 600 students.  The school offers an ABET-accredited undergraduate program in civil engineering with an option for a concentration in environmental engineering and maintains a highly-ranked international graduate distance education program.  Research and instruction at undergraduate and graduate levels are offered in construction, environmental, geotechnical, materials, pavements, structures, transportation, and water resources engineering fields.  More information is available at the school web site at or by contacting the search committee at


Applicants must apply online at (PARF #505373, #505372) by completing the Personal Data Information Form and attaching a cover letter describing their background, experience and goals regarding instruction and research. Candidates must also attach a current curriculum vitae and the contact information for three professional references.
