Requisition Number: 0808479
Position Summary: Filling two tenure track faculty positions, one in environmental and water resources engineering, and one in transportation systems engineering. Research and teaching in the areas of hydroinformatics, hydrometerological and regional earth systems modeling; highway safety performance, transportation sustainability, and traffic flow theory and simulation.
Minimum Preferred Qualifications: The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at The University of Alabama invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions, one in environmental and water resources engineering, and one in transportation systems engineering. Candidates will be considered for appointment at the assistant or associate professor level based on experience and qualifications. Preference will be given to candidates with experience working in an integrated, multidisciplinary environment with expertise in one or more of the following areas: hydroinformatics, hydrometerological and regional earth systems modeling; highway safety performance, transportation sustainability, and traffic flow theory and simulation. The department offers ABET/EAC-accredited Bachelor of Science degrees in civil engineering and construction engineering, and is seeking approval to offer Bachelor of Science degrees in environmental engineering and architectural engineering. The department also offers six minors in the areas of architectural, civil, construction, environmental and water resources, transportation, and structural engineering. At the graduate level, the department offers the Master of Science in civil engineering, Master of Science in environmental engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy in civil engineering. The department also supports two dual-degree graduate programs, a joint MSCE/MBA and a joint MSCE/JD. The department is benefiting from the College and University's rapid expansion in facilities including ongoing construction of a four-building, $300 million Engineering and Science Complex. The third phase of this complex was completed in January 2012, and the fourth phase being completed in Fall 2013. These buildings provide over 900,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research and instructional space, the majority of which is devoted to the College of Engineering. Successful candidates will work within an integrated research community that includes a variety of on-campus research centers such as the Environmental Institute (EI), the University Transportation Center for Alabama (UTCA), and new Center for Sustainable Infrastructure (CSI). Applicants must have a doctorate in civil engineering, environmental engineering, or a closely related field. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a resume, transcripts, statement of research and teaching interests, and a list of at least three references as soon as possible. Applications will be accepted and reviewed continuously until the positions are filled. A start date as early as January 2014 is possible. For additional information regarding this search, please contact Dr. Andrew Ernest, chair of the environmental and water resources faculty search (email@example.com), or Dr. Jay Lindly, chair of the transportation faculty search (firstname.lastname@example.org).
