The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering (IAFSE) at Arizona State University (ASU) and the Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC) within the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE) seek applicants for an assistant teaching professor in the fields of construction management and technology or construction engineering. The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE), one of the eight Fulton Schools, houses a vibrant construction management and technology and construction engineering research and teaching community, comprising a group of faculty members who are leaders in all aspects of construction. 

Job responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses in construction, such as project management, planning/preconstruction, estimating, scheduling, electrical and/or mechanical construction, and construction methods and materials. The individual will be expected to develop and deliver online courses, in addition to traditional in-person courses. Other responsibilities include advising student organizations and competition teams, supervising undergraduate projects, participating in course and program assessment, and engaging with local industry and professional associations to advance student success and program effectiveness. This position is non-tenure track. It is anticipated that the contract will be renewed annually subject to satisfactory performance and university needs.  

As part of its New American University imperatives, ASU seeks candidates whose professional experience and knowledge aligns with addressing critical infrastructure challenges, with a focus on sustainability and resilience. We seek applicants who will contribute to our academic programs, promote transdisciplinary educational endeavors, and help the university to achieve its aspirations, including enabling student success, transforming society, valuing entrepreneurship and conducting use-inspired professional activities. Career track faculty members in the Fulton Schools are expected to develop and implement effective pedagogical practices for the delivery of in-person and online graduate and undergraduate courses, advise both undergraduate and graduate student projects and undertake service activities (e.g., advising student organizations and mentoring student competition teams). Professional engineering licensure or the ability to obtain registration in a timely manner is desirable. 

Successful candidates will support the mission of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and are expected to advance instructional endeavors both within and beyond the Fulton Schools. The selected candidate will be associated with the Del E. Webb School of Construction within the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment. SSEBE offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Civil, Environmental, Sustainable, and Construction Engineering, and in Construction Management and Technology.  SSEBE has 60 faculty members, 1450 undergraduate and 750 graduate students, and generates annual research expenditures of nearly $30 million per year. 

Appointment will be made at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor. The anticipated start date is August 2024, but accommodations can be made for the selected candidate. The selected candidate will be expected to advance construction management or construction engineering education, demonstrate a commitment to pedagogical innovation, and help maintain and expand the Del E. Webb School of Construction’s industry partnerships to advance student organizations and success.  In addition to building strong collaborations with existing faculty within the DEWSC, the candidate will be expected to build strong collaborations with other groups in SSEBE as well as entities within IAFSE and across ASU.
