About the Position:
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications from qualified candidates for a preliminary tenure‐track appointment in Engineering with Climate Change at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor beginning July 1, 2021.
The candidate will be expected to have a strong background in civil or environmental engineering or related discipline with a focus on climate change impacts, mitigation, adaptation and/or modelling. The desired candidate should have a research focus on climate change that will complement existing strengths in the department and Carleton. Areas may include but are not limited to: climate change modelling; infrastructure adaptation (e.g. permafrost in the North); water resources and drinking water; transportation; energy performance and efficiency; alternative/renewable energy generation; and/or emerging technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
We encourage applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in Engineering and/or with experience in mentoring students from such groups.
About the Academic Unit:
The Department offers dynamic, innovative, and cross‐disciplinary undergraduate and graduate programs leading to Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees in both Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The Department has diverse expertise over a wide range of experimental, numerical, and analytical research areas in geotechnical, environmental, fire safety, structural and transportation engineering.
Graduate programs are offered through the Ottawa‐Carleton Institutes for Civil Engineering and for Environmental Engineering to provide further strength and opportunities. The research enterprise in the Department includes a Jarislowsky Research Chair in Water and Global Health. Research activities in the Department and Faculty include PermafrostNET, a Carleton led NSERC Strategic Network evaluating impacts of climate change on permafrost, and FlareNet, an NSERC Strategic Network assessing impacts of gas flaring on climate change. Further information on the Department is available at http://www.carleton.ca/cee
Candidates must have a doctoral degree in civil or environmental engineering or related discipline. The successful candidate must demonstrate a strong commitment to research and the ability to develop an externally‐funded, high quality research program; will be passionate about effective teaching with demonstrated or strong evidence of potential of teaching excellence; and will contribute effectively to the academic life of the Department. Synergy to establish collaborative research links with the existing members of the Department and across the University is highly desirable.
Membership in a Canadian professional engineering association is required at the time of or within three years of appointment.
Application packages comprising i) detailed curriculum vitae, ii) description of research accomplishments and future plans (research statement), iii) teaching dossier (teaching statement), and iv) names of three referees should be sent to the Hiring Committee as a single pdf file emailed to CEE.Hiring@carleton.ca. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Please also identify any past experiences in supporting equity, diversity and inclusion in your previous institutional environment such as in curriculum development and in supporting diverse students.
Please indicate in your application if you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
