The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) invites applications for a Presidential Scholar position within the Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction.
The Presidential Scholar position will be filled with a full professor who has been exceptionally successful in the academic world. This is a tenured appointment. The candidate will have distinguished themselves as a top researcher in their field, as demonstrated by a body of significant published scholarly work, consistently high levels of external funding from government and/or industry, and by the respect of a wide range of peers within his or her field.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is one of the best employers in Nebraska, according to a list compiled by Forbes and Statista in June 2019.
We seek outstanding candidates in all architectural engineering and construction areas that relate to Building Information Modeling (BIM), healthcare facilities, and smart buildings, as these are growing research thrusts in the Durham School. Applicants must have excellent communication skills and a strong desire to work in a diverse and collaborative environment.
Opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska include the industry, University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), Innovation Campus and other state- and federally-funded research centers and programs.
