Department of Civil Engineering and Construction
Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering & Computing

The Department of Civil Engineering and Construction in the College of Engineering and Computing invites applications and nominations for the position of instructor of Construction. This position will be located on the Statesboro campus.

Georgia Southern University is a distinctive combination of Southern charm and uncompromising academics. We are a Carnegie Doctoral/R2 institution serving about 26,500 students through nine colleges on three beautiful oak-lined campuses in Statesboro, Savannah, Hinesville, and via a growing online program. Throughout its degree offerings at the associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern cultivates community collaboration, world-class scholarship and hands-on learning opportunities.

Georgia Southern University was founded in 1906 as a school for teaching modern agricultural production techniques and homemaking skills to rural school children. Its Savannah campus was established in 1935 as Armstrong Junior College for local youth who could not afford to attend college away from home. The Liberty Center in Hinesville was established in 1998 to serve the military and their families at nearby Fort Stewart, the largest military base east of the Mississippi. All three locations came together in 2018 when Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University consolidated. The "new" Georgia Southern University preserves a passion for serving its neighbors while preparing students for lifelong service as scholars, leaders, and responsible stewards of their communities.

Within this setting, the Department of Civil Engineering & Construction offers a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE), a Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering (BSConE), and a Bachelor of Science in Construction (BSCons). The BSCE program is accredited by ABET and the BSCons program is accredited by ACCE; the new BSConE program will secure initial ABET accreditation after graduating its first cohort of students. The department also offers a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE). Delivery of the curriculum for each program emphasizes hands-on and experiential learning where students develop practical skills valued by employers. State-of-the art equipment and software are employed in both classroom and laboratory/field settings to prepare students to be productive technical professionals when they graduate.

Position Description. Reporting to the Department Chair, the successful candidate will teach in the BSCons program and provide service as needed within the department. The required courses that the successful candidate will teach include the following: Introduction to Construction Management, Construction Graphics, Construction Surveying, Construction Safety, and Construction Finance.
