The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction (http://engineering.unl.edu/durhamschool) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) invites applications for a tenured Presidential Scholar position at the rank of full professor, beginning in Fall 2022. The Durham School is co-located in two cities, Lincoln and Omaha, which are approximately 50 miles apart. With approximately 30 faculty, 500 undergraduate students, and 100 graduate students, the Durham School is the only endowed academic unit ($30 million) in the UNL College of Engineering and has strong ties with several world-class architecture/engineering/construction firms, many of which are headquartered in Omaha, including HDR, DLR, Leo A Daly, Kiewit, J.E. Dunn, McCarthy, and many others. A prime example of the strength of our collaboration with industry is that the capstone course in the school’s architectural engineering program has been a recipient of the NCEES Engineering Education Award in five of the last six years; the Durham School is the only one to have won the $25k Grand Prize more than once. Currently the UNL College of Engineering is building a new $115 million teaching facility named Kiewit Hall that will serve as engineering’s academic hub and house the school’s construction programs in Lincoln beginning in summer 2023 (https://durhamschool.link/KiewitHall).Minimum Required Qualifications:
The successful candidate must have academic credentials commensurate with the rank of full professor with tenure and may be based in either Lincoln or Omaha. The person in this position will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the Durham School; conduct original impactful research; actively participate in service, outreach, and community engagement; support the development of other faculty as a driver of collaboration in the school; and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in all areas of the university mission.
Numerous opportunities for collaborations across the University of Nebraska exist, including with the Nebraska Transportation Center and Midwest Roadside Safety Facility; the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience; Nebraska Innovation Campus; and other state- and federally-funded research centers and programs. Faculty at the University of Nebraska have access to many resources, including the Holland Computing Center, which manages supercomputing facilities.
