The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a tenure-line faculty position in engineering for developing communities. This faculty search fits with the overall vision of the college as being a world leader for excellence and innovation in engineering research and education while addressing global societal challenges and improving life.

This is an interdisciplinary search, and candidates would have the opportunity to join the engineering faculty where their research and teaching efforts are aligned with their interests in engineering for developing communities. The position is targeted at the Assistant Professor level, but candidates with exceptional qualifications for higher rank will be considered.

We are looking for candidates who show promise and interest in establishing and leading a research group to explore transdisciplinary fields and paradigms in sustainable community development, produce internationally recognized work, and develop collaborative relationships in academia as well as industry and the community. The candidates should show ability to work across several sectors of the college of engineering working on problems related to engineering in developing communities, including the Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities (, ATLAS (, and other centers across campus.

Successful candidates will be expected to engage in both undergraduate and graduate teaching, contribute to professional service, contribute to service-learning initiatives at the undergraduate and graduate levels, develop externally funded research programs, and collaborate with other faculty, organizations working in developing communities, and community members. Professional registration or an ability to become a registered professional engineer is desired. While the target of hiring is at the assistant professor level, outstanding applicants may be considered at all levels including those who would further strengthen the diversity of our faculty.
