HYDRAULIC/HYDROLOGIC ENGINEERING. The Department of Civil Engineering at Auburn University invites applications for an Associate or Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty position in Hydraulic/Hydrologic Engineering beginning Fall 2016. Candidates should have research and teaching interests that complement those of the existing faculty in the water resources and environmental engineering groups. Areas of research interests for the position include, but are not limited to, large-scale hydrologic and water quality modeling, eco-hydraulics, eco-hydrology, socio-hydrology, computational fluid dynamics, turbulence, and/or coastal hydraulics. The selected faculty member is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in hydraulic/hydrologic engineering, develop an externally funded research program, and direct graduate students. The candidate is expected to engage in service activities with professional organizations and the university.
The successful candidate for this position will be expected to participate actively in Auburn University multidisciplinary Cluster Hires Initiative in the cluster of Climate, Human, and Earth System Science (CHESS). New faculty with expertise in Hydraulic/Hydrologic Engineering will complement the University’s considerable existing expertise in these areas to form the core of this new innovative multidisciplinary initiative. Participation in the CHESS will be an important component in faculty annual review. For more information regarding the Cluster Hires please visit the following link:
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in civil engineering/environmental engineering with focus in water resources or a closely related field and meet eligibility requirements to work in the U.S. on the date that the appointment is scheduled to begin and continue working legally for the proposed term of employment. Must communicate effectively in English. The ability to complete requirements for professional engineering licensure in a timely manner is desirable.
