Applications are invited for tenured or tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, including School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering. In addition to regular faculty positions, we are considering candidates for endowed chairs and professorships, Canada Research Chairs, and NSERC Industrial Research Chair programs. Exceptional candidates are being sought in all areas of Civil Engineering (including construction engineering and management, environmental, geotechnical/geoenvironmental, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering), Mining Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. Priority will be given to the areas of mining engineering, petroleum engineering, construction engineering, building science and engineering, pavement and road construction, transportation planning, risk engineering, steel structures, masonry building systems, cold region engineering, and environmental engineering. Most of the positions are due to the major expansion and new opportunities in the Department. The positions in building science and engineering are the results of newly established Nasseri School of Building Science and Engineering; and the positions in steel and masonry structures are the results of major commitments by the Alberta Steel Construction Industry and Masonry Contractors Association of Alberta (Northern Region), respectively. More details of these and other new opportunities and initiatives, please visitwww.civil.engineering.ualberta.ca/en/Employment.aspx.
All candidates are expected to be licensed professional engineers with eligibility for membership in the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) and must have a PhD in Civil, Mining, or Petroleum Engineering, or in related fields. Successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to teaching and research at the university level and are expected to develop a significant independent research program, supervise graduate students and teach graduate and undergraduate courses in their fields of interest.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (including School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering) is committed to securing a position among the leading schools in North America. With a present complement of 57 professors, research in the Department is vigorous and covers all major areas of Civil, Mining, and Petroleum Engineering. Our graduate program attracts outstanding students from the best schools worldwide and presently has an enrollment of over 500 students, including approximately 250 PhD students.
Applicants are invited to submit their curriculum vitae including employment history, a statement outlining research and teaching interests, a brief description of major contributions, reprints of at least three representative research papers, the names of at least three referees, and an indication of the area and position you would like to be considered for.
