Job Details

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.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in civil engineering or closely related discipline from an accredited institution of higher education conferred by the start of employment.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Earned professional engineer (P.E.) or structural engineer (S.E.) license.


As engineers, we are data-driven decision makers. We are relentless in our attention to results, and our focus is necessarily on the objective outcomes of our methods. After all, how else can we measure our success' The University of Arkansas’ College of Engineering prides itself on being a student-centered, nationally competitive research institution. What does this mean to our engineering students, our faculty and our community' It means we are committed to listening to what the data has to say about: v The depth and breadth of our degree offerings; v The quality of undergraduate and graduate students we are able to attract; v The scholarly reputation of our faculty; v The quality of the facilities that are available; v The accomplishments of our graduates and alumni; and v The resources available to our students and our faculty. Increasingly, the data says the University of Arkansas is a rising star among engineering programs at public universities across the United States. Following the successful conclusion of the University of Arkansas’ Campaign for the Twenty-First Century in mid-2005, the College of Engineering focused on using its strengthened resources to create transformational change at each of the levels listed above. Taken together, the remarkable changes wrought by these investments add up to a premier engineering research and teaching environment. This is the kind of learning experience the University of Arkansas takes pride in offering to each and every student who chooses to study with us. Arkansas has always been a nurturing home to those who seek – like engineers – to combine industriousness with ingenuity to generate great ideas that help to shape the human experience. That spirit inspired J. Walter Keller (’46 BSEE) to develop the modern pacemaker; and it is the same spirit that has made Arkansas home to the world’s largest and most influential company the world has ever known, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. At the College of Engineering, we are dedicated to fostering that spirit, and we invite you and all our friends to learn about the astounding variety of ground-breaking research that has made Arkansas its home. Truly, Arkansas IS where innovation is happening. We hope you will join us as the story of Arkansan innovation continues to unfold. With warm regards, John R. English, Ph.D, P.E.  Dean, Professor & Irma F. and Raymond F. Giffels Endowed Chair in Engineering
