The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University of Minnesota seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of water resources. We are particularly interested in applicants with strong core fundamentals in environmental fluid mechanics that allow them to easily move across disciplinary boundaries and become involved in department, university, and national interdisciplinary research opportunities. The position is expected to be at the rank of assistant professor, although exceptional candidates at all ranks will be considered.
Areas of interest include hydrology, physical limnology, stream hydraulics, computational fluid dynamics, atmospheric boundary layer, and environmental management and sensing. Candidates will be expected to initiate and maintain a strong externally-funded research program. Teaching responsibilities include core undergraduate and graduate courses in water resources engineering, as well as the opportunity to develop new courses in specialty areas. An earned doctorate is required at the time of appointment.
Applications must be completed online at http://z.umn.edu/cegeasstprof (assistant professor) or http://z.umn.edu/cegeprof (professor). Include a letter of intent, CV with a list of publications, complete contact information for three references, and a statement of teaching and research interests. The review of applications will begin December 30, 2015. Applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Expected appointment is Fall 2016.
The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University of Minnesota is affiliated with St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) and the faculty member will have access to the excellent facilities at SAFL. Other major research centers include the National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics 2, EOLOS Wind Energy Research Consortium, Multi-Axial Subassemblage Testing Laboratory, and the Center for Engineered Fracturing of Rock.
