Summary of Duties:
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, within the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, at Washington State University in Pullman, WA as part of its strategic initiative on Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure Systems seeks applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions as Assistant or Associate Professors in the areas of Structures, Materials, and Sustainability.
Tenured and tenure-track faculty members at all levels are expected to teach and advise students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in Civil Engineering; conduct funded research; publish in top-tier venues; direct M.S. and Ph.D. student research programs; participating in the continuous teaching assessment activities of the Department; effectively communicate and interact with students; and collaborate with others within the School, the University, or other organizations including regional partners.
Candidates must have expertise in structural design and engineering with an emphasis on sustainability, infrastructure resiliency, or AI / ML. Both positions are located at WSU Pullman, WA campus. Candidates should be able to work at a granular level, as well as a systems level. Candidates with the ability to work within their discipline and across multiple disciplines collaboratively will be preferred. The ability to collaborate in teaching and on projects in soil-structure interaction, sustainable practices in construction, or big data applications in civil engineering will be given preference. AI, VR, and automated off-site construction interests will facilitate productive linkages with WSU’s School of Design and Construction, and therefore are considered favorably.
A successful candidate for the Structural Engineering related faculty positions should have expertise in one or more of the following areas:
Sustainable methods of construction, such as design and engineering hybrid structures that incorporate varying materials based on their strengths (for example, mass timber with steel or concrete reinforcing members) and energy efficient building design and construction
Resilient multi-hazard structural design, wind engineering, and computational modeling
Assessment and mitigation of infrastructure problems related to climate change, natural hazards, geohazards, and soil-structure interaction
Data-driven decision-making for sustainability goals (environment, corporate responsibility, health & safety) towards the bigger vision of smart cities and building design and materials
The ideal candidate should demonstrate high-quality research and have a commitment to teaching excellence. Individuals with demonstrated abilities to collaborate in large projects, especially across disciplines, are highly encouraged to apply. Abilities to teach and mentor a diverse student body, supervise graduate students, and enhance the curriculum in the areas of structural, material, and transportation engineering are desired. An ability to teach core undergraduate fundamental courses in structures, structural analysis, and structural design and modeling is desired. A culture of interdisciplinary research with a diverse group of faculty and students is valued, and the candidate will be encouraged to contribute to existing research strengths within the program and across the university in synergistic areas, such as within the Composite Materials & Engineering Center (www.cmec.wsu.edu), the School of Design + Construction (https://sdc.wsu.edu/) and the National UTC TriDurLE (https://TriDurLE.wsu.edu/).
Suitable candidates must have:
An earned doctoral degree in Civil or Architectural engineering or a closely related field at the start of the appointment.
Ability to develop an externally funded research program leading to national recognition, teach courses pertaining to structural engineering, and contribute to departmental service.
Excellent communication skills and a demonstrated commitment to collaborate with diverse internal and external groups.
Additionally, candidates for the Associate Professor level must have a proven track record in scholarship, grantsmanship, and teaching.
M.S. degree in Civil Engineering.
Strong records of scholarship, teaching, and professional service.
A demonstrated background in multiple targeted areas mentioned above.
Ability to demonstrate the potential for meeting the expectations through activities such as journal publications, professional conference presentations, teaching experience, outreach, and related activities.
Willingness to attain Professional Engineering licensure within 5 years of starting the appointment.
