Clemson University recently created the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (SCEEES) that houses the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences. SCEEES is home to nearly 60 faculty, 200 graduate students, and 575 undergraduates. The School has an established and growing expertise in the following four thematic areas: Smart City Service (managing risk and security); Resilient Communities (natural and technological disasters mitigation); Engineering the Surface and Subsurface (dry land, clean water, and water security); and Engineering the Earth’s Ecosphere (air quality, greenhouse gas removal, managing solid and nuclear wastes). Further, the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering has recently completed a 6-year grant from the National Science Foundation to revolution our engineering department. This grant has resulted in deeper connections between students, faculty and industry, as well as engagement with the community on impactful projects, and created significant improvements in student professional development outcomes.
Clemson University is South Carolina’s public land-grant University. As a Carnegie R1 Institution, the University has excellent research resources, including the Palmetto Cluster, a top 500 global high-performance computing cluster. The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences encourages impactful interdisciplinary work, and this culture of collaboration includes joint appointments in other departments and schools on campus as well as extensive work with several industry partners. The University, College, and Department are committed to building an inclusive community of scholars dedicated to working and teaching in a multicultural environment. Clemson University recognizes that many candidates for faculty positions have dual career needs. The Dual Career Program in the Office of the Provost provides support when considering employment opportunities with the University and in the surrounding community.
Competitive candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering or closely related discipline and be able to teach core civil engineering courses at the undergraduate and graduate level to achieve student outcomes. Development of complementary graduate courses in the candidate’s area of expertise is also encouraged. The candidate will advise both M.S. and Ph.D. students and develop a high-quality and productive sponsored research program. Opportunities exist for collaboration within SCEEES, as well as with other colleagues in the College of Engineering, Computing, and Applied Sciences, and other Colleges and Centers at Clemson. Competitive candidates will have a significant record of academic accomplishments, a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively, a commitment to inclusive excellence, and a willingness to expand disciplinary boundaries to address complex technical and societal grand challenges.
Applications received by January 31, 2024, will receive full consideration, with the review process continuing until the position is filled.
To apply, all application material must be submitted via Interfolio at the position-specific links above.
The application packet should include a cover letter (to include a short statement on the commitment to inclusive excellence), curriculum vitae, research statement, statement of teaching interests/philosophy, and the names and email addresses of five references.
