The Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University is seeking applications for a full-time, tenured or tenure track faculty position with a 9-month academic appointment, and the possibility of an additional summer appointment contingent upon need and availability of funds, beginning fall of 2023. Applicants will be considered at the assistant professor, associate professor and professor level for a position in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering in the broad area of environmental engineering. The successful candidate should demonstrate strong, fundamental knowledge and skill sets in addressing global grand challenges. We are particularly interested in applicants capable of contributing to interdisciplinary teams and working in environmental engineering areas such as: using a data-driven approach to analyze interactions of complex environmental systems; a combination of advanced analytical and computational methods to assess the fate, transport and transformation of emerging contaminants in natural and engineered systems; system-level analysis to enhance infrastructure and community resilience against global climate change; approaches to promote rapid recovery after disasters; and novel carbon-neutral/negative materials for a sustainable environment.
Candidates applying at the assistant professor rank should demonstrate rigorous training in environmental engineering and strong potential to affect the field through original scholarship, excellent teaching and student mentoring, and service to the university and profession. Applicants at the associate professor rank must have an established research record demonstrating the ability to advance engineering through the application of fundamental knowledge, evidence of excellence in teaching and student mentoring, and should demonstrate the potential to become a leader in their field. Applicants at the full professor rank must be a leader in their field with an international reputation for research, teaching, and service.
The successful applicant will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate level; advise and mentor graduate and undergraduate research students; develop an independent, externally funded research program; participate in all aspects of the department’s activities; and serve the profession. Strong written and verbal communication skills are expected. Applicants are invited to consult the department website to review our academic and research programs, including the vision and mission of the Department and the College of Engineering.
