The Civil Engineering Program at York College of Pennsylvania invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor position specializing in structural engineering/civil engineering materials science beginning in the fall semester of 2021 (starting on 1 July 2021), with ongoing teaching assignments two terms each year. Successful candidates will have the ability to teach in structural engineering or civil engineering materials science areas and to additionally teach in one or more of the other areas of civil engineering. Preference will be given to candidates who have the ability to teach across a broad range of civil engineering and basic engineering mechanics courses, possess other specialties in civil engineering, and/or who have industrial work experience. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the potential for: outstanding teaching/advising, ongoing college service, and professional development; developing undergraduate courses; and working with industry and undergraduate students in applied research. Graduates of the ASCE ExCEEd Teaching Workshop are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, or a closely related field, and should have a record of successful undergraduate teaching. Registration as a professional engineer (PE) or the ability to obtain a license as a professional engineer is highly desired.
Interested candidates should electronically submit a cover letter with a description of relevant experience (to include professional registration status, i.e. passed the FE, or PE), a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and of research philosophy (related to undergraduates), and names of at least three references.
Review of applications will begin December 1, 2020. While applications will be accepted until the position is filled, for full consideration, applications should be received by January 4, 2021.
The Civil Engineering Program at York College was launched in the fall of 2016 with an inaugural class of 19 students (there are currently 100 students in the program) and is part of a growing and highly successful engineering program at York College housed in the Department of Engineering and Computer Science in the Kinsley School of Engineering, Sciences and Technology. In the falloff 2018 we opened a new civil engineering center with classrooms, labs and office space. The program has an active student chapter of ASCE and is scheduled for our initial ABET accreditation visit this fall (2020). We are seeking a collaborative colleague who is committed to excellence in civil engineering education and interested in contributing to building and growing a state of the art, forward thinking, and progressive civil engineering curriculum that will prepare and develop students to be successful civil engineers or pursue graduate degrees for the 21st Century.
The engineering programs at York College are characterized by small class sizes, a hands-on approach, and extensive student/faculty interactions. All engineering students participate in three semesters of full-time cooperative education, gaining valuable professional experience.
