The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia announces the opening of multiple tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Applications will be considered for Assistant Professors, Associate Professors, and Professors, and all disciplines of Civil and Environmental Engineering will be considered; however, preference will be given to applicants with research interests in the following areas:

Computational Fluid Dynamics: Research areas of interest include turbulent simulations of environmental flow applications; hydrodynamic modeling of rivers, hydraulic structures, estuaries and coastal processes; water quality modeling of surface and subsurface waters; and multi-scale process modeling and integrated assessments.
Construction Engineering and Management: Research areas of interest include sensor systems-based knowledge generation; infrastructure and facility performance monitoring and assessment; information modeling, simulation, and virtual reality; automation, sensor and instrumentation technology; infrastructure data interoperability and network reliability; decision making in complex systems; and capital facility and energy projects.
Environmental Engineering: Research areas of interest include but are not limited to the application of nanotechnology and/or environmental biotechnology to provide basic understanding and sustainable solutions to global problems of energy, water, public health, contaminant removal, or carbon and nutrient cycling; development of next generation sensors and/or exposure assessment tools for air and water quality; green chemistry and/or innovative materials/processes for sustainable water use; environmental renewable energy systems.
Structural Engineering/Mechanics/Materials: Research areas of interest include large-scale experimental testing; structural design to mitigate impacts of natural and man-made hazards; sustainability in structural design; resilient infrastructure systems; and innovative infrastructure materials.
Transportation Engineering: Research areas of interest are all areas of transportation including, but not limited to, multi-modal transportation systems planning and policy; transportation administration and policy analysis; travel demand modeling; public works economics and finance; sustainable development; safety statistics; and integration with cross-disciplinary issues such as energy, climate change, health, and other sustainability/livability issues.
GeoSystems Engineering: Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to sustainability and resilience of subsurface infrastructure systems; new laboratory and field developments at the confluence of sensors, IT and modeling; subsurface solutions to global problems of energy generation, capture, storage and transmission; engineered geomaterials; high performance computing.

Applicants with the ability to work across disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has vibrant programs in Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Water Resources, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering/Mechanics/Materials, and Transportation Engineering. In both Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering, the Schools undergraduate programs are ranked 3rd nationally, and the graduate programs are ranked 3rd and 5th, respectively. The School currently has approximately 790 undergraduate and 400 graduate students.

Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, or a related field at the time of appointment, and will have either demonstrated, or shown a clear potential, for creative and independent research that would lead to a strong extramurally-funded research program and national and international recognition. Incumbents will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. Screening of applicants will continue until Dec. 20, 2013 or until the position is filled.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a one-page statement of teaching experience and interests, a one-page statement of research objectives, and the names of four references in a single PDF file to: Please format the file name as: Burdell.GP_Faculty Search Application (for example) and include Georgia Tech Faculty Search, and your area of specialization (e.g., Structures), in the subject line of the email.

The Georgia Institute of Technology is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, and applications from women and under-represented minorities are encouraged.
