The Department of Civil Engineering (CE) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in snow and ice mechanics (e.g., experimental, modelling, remote sensing, materials characterization) and/or cold regions engineering at the rank of Assistant Professor. Appointments at higher academic ranks will be considered for exceptional candidates. The CE Department offers BS and MS degrees in Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering, and a BS degree in Construction Engineering Technology.

Currently, the University hosts an enrollment of over 16,000 students, including around 2,000 graduate students. MSU is a Carnegie Foundation R1 university for its research activity and is one of only two universities with a very high undergraduate enrollment profile to achieve this designation.


The CE Department has 17 tenured or tenure-track faculty and offers ABET-accredited baccalaureate programs in both civil engineering and construction engineering technology, and graduate programs at the Master’s and PhD levels.
