The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Arkansas invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications. Candidates with an expertise in structural engineering, having experience with large-scale experimental testing, are encouraged to apply.
The Department recently opened the Grady E. Harvell Civil Engineering Research and Education Center. This 37,500 ft2 structural engineering laboratory is a state-of-the-art research and teaching facility. Current research projects at the lab include seismic performance of steel structures, bridge engineering, alternative cements, structural concrete, prestressed concrete, and mass timber. It is expected that the successful applicant will serve with existing faculty in the effective use of the facility.
The Assistant or Associate Professor will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in civil engineering, advise undergraduate and graduate students, publish in peer reviewed journals, and develop and maintain an externally funded research program that will complement existing strengths within the department.
Regular, reliable, and non-disruptive attendance is an essential job duty, as is the ability to create and maintain collegial, harmonious working relationships with others.
