Several tenure-track faculty positions – School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, working with the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (www.cee.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia invites applications for up to three tenure-track faculty positions, with priority in areas Structural, Mechanical and Materials Engineering, and Transportation Systems Engineering. All of the school’s degree programs are ranked among the top five programs in America. Candidates will be considered at all levels in all research areas of the School, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transversal activities. Faculty candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor are sought in two particular areas: (1) Structural, Mechanical and Materials Engineering, with an emphasis on expertise in bridging infrastructure materials, mechanics and structural design. Skills and an interest in advanced experimental techniques and construction methods, additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and/or data analysis are desired. (2) Transportation Systems Engineering, without restriction of research specialty. Outstanding faculty candidates in other areas of civil engineering including Environmental Engineering (ENVE), Building and Infrastructure Systems Engineering (CISE), Water Resources Engineering (WRE) and geosystems engineering (GEO), especially those with expertise in harnessing innovations in materials and data science to solve problems in these disciplinary areas.

Diversity is one of Georgia Tech’s strengths and one of the top priorities identified in our strategic plan. Georgia Tech is an equal educational and employment opportunity institution dedicated to building and sustaining a diverse community. We believe that diversity includes individual perspectives among people of different social, racial or ethnic origins, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, economic circumstances, personal characteristics, philosophical perspectives, different life experiences, beliefs, expectations, physical abilities and aspirations. Each of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contributes to the richness of the Georgia Tech community. Georgia Tech has policies to promote a healthy work-life balance and recognizes that attracting faculty may require meeting the needs of two careers.

Broadly, we seek candidates whose work contributes to the School’s interdisciplinary and cross-cutting research areas of smart cities, sustainable systems, healthy communities, and resilient infrastructure systems. In addition, the School seeks to expand its research and teaching expertise in interdisciplinary areas that address major global challenges. Preference will be given to applicants at the Assistant Professor level, but outstanding applicants at the Associate Professor or Professor level will be considered. Candidates must teach undergraduate and graduate courses and mentor a diverse student body. In addition to undergraduate and graduate teaching, each position requires a balance of research and service responsibilities. Applicants should have demonstrated or shown a clear potential for creative and independent research that would lead to a strong research program funded by extramural funds and national/international recognition.
