Two Tenure-Track Assistant Professors at the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering, New York University

The Department of Civil and Urban Engineering (CUE) at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions, starting in Fall 2024. The positions are expected to be at the rank of assistant professor, although exceptional candidates at all ranks will be considered.

CONSTRUCTION AUTOMATION: CUE is looking to hire in the area of Construction Automation. CUE has leveraged its long-standing relationships with industry partners and professionals to support its undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and build a strong research program focused currently on construction informatics and automation. Particular interest will be in candidates who work at the frontier of their field towards enhancing the design, construction, delivery, and operation of the infrastructure systems and the built environment through Robotics, Artificial Intelligence(AI), Digital Twins, Sensing, Informatics, Human-technology Collaboration, Safety and Ergonomics, Computational Design, Digital Fabrication, Sustainable and Green Technologies in Construction, and CyberPhysical Systems. Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in civil, architectural, construction engineering, or a closely related discipline. We seek individuals who have the potential to develop a strong record of scholarship, leadership, curricular innovation, entrepreneurship, and an excellent funding record. You should demonstrate potential for excellence in research, teaching and mentoring. Candidates should have the ability to teach in support of both the undergraduate and graduate curricula. Applicants should clearly articulate how they will develop a robust, externally funded research program, their work will achieve synergy with existing construction faculty research areas, and they will create opportunities with existing centers of research at NYU (e.g., C2SMART, CUSP, Robotics, etc.). Please submit all application materials electronically through Interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/132527

ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING: CUE is looking to hire an Environmental Engineering professor with expertise in the design of innovative physical-chemical processes for the treatment or reuse of water and/or wastewater, the fate of emerging contaminants in natural and engineered systems, environmental analytical chemistry, resource recovery from wastewater or other waste streams, or related fields. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering, or a closely related discipline. We seek individuals who have, or have the potential to develop, a strong record of scholarship, mentoring, leadership, teaching and curricular innovation.  Candidates will contribute to the expansion of the environmental engineering program at NYU Tandon, as well as the school-wide Sustainable Engineering Initiative, which aims to develop engineering solutions to avoid, mitigate, and remediate emissions responsible for climate change and environmental contamination, as well as adapt to these environmental challenges, through research, education, and knowledge transfer. Please submit all application materials electronically through Interfolio: http://apply.interfolio.com/132696

In compliance with NYC’s Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary (for 9-month) range for this position is $110,000 - $170,000 for the Assistant Professor rank. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) scope and responsibilities of the position, candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.

We aim to inspire and educate engineers for the 21st century. We are committed to quality, integrity, and respect for each other.

NYU Tandon is committed to substantially increase the proportion of our faculty from historically underrepresented groups in STEM and we encourage candidates from such groups to apply. We aspire to create a climate where diversity and inclusion are not only appreciated but considered an asset for creativity and innovation, and we seek faculty who have a real passion for a culturally diverse environment. We take pride in our high numbers of female students and students who are the first in their family to go to college. Tandon belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), which assists with dual-career searches, and our faculty are supported by a range of services and programs provided by the NYU Office of Work Life.

With NYU's unrivaled global network of campuses, we promote a truly global engineering education. We are deeply committed to teaching and learning, and we lead in online education and in K-12 STEM outreach. Our students conduct Vertically Integrated Research projects and participate in an extensive undergraduate summer research program. We lead and have ties to multidisciplinary centers in sustainable engineering, health, urban science, climate science, smart mobility, urban informatics, construction engineering and management, wireless technology, cybersecurity, data sciences, technology and governance, and the social implications of artificial intelligence, among others.

Applicants should submit:

  • Cover letter
  • Current CV
  • Statement of research interests
  • Statement of teaching interests
  • A statement that summarizes your past or potential contributions to inclusion, diversity, equity, and belonging in research, teaching, and/or mentoring
  • Recent teaching evaluations (if available)
  • Contact information for at least three references

We will review applications beginning on December 1, 2023, and will continue until we fill the position. We encourage you to submit early.
