Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech)
Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering
Assistant Professor, Environmental Engineering
The Civil Engineering program at the Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech) invites applications for a tenure or teaching track faculty position in the area of Environmental Engineering. The position is planned to commence in August 2019 and is intended primarily at the Assistant Professor level. However, exceptional candidates with established scholarly records may be considered for higher-level appointments. While preference will be given to those applying for the tenure track position, candidates with outstanding teaching credentials and versatility in teaching various courses can also apply for the teaching track. The difference between the two tracks would be the relative emphasis on teaching and research.
Applicants conducting research in all areas of environmental engineering will be considered. Qualified applicants are expected to have an undergraduate degree in engineering and a Ph. D. in Environmental or Civil Engineering or a closely related field; excellent potential for teaching and research; and dedication to research, education, service, and professional activities. Duties of a successful candidate include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, mentoring graduate students, developing a strong externally-funded research program, publishing scholarly work, and service. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work with faculty teams in the Indian River Lagoon Research Institute (IRLRI; http://web2.fit.edu/indian-river-lagoon/). Applicants should send a resume, a cover letter, statements of the candidate’s plans and vision for research and teaching, and a list of three professional references via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applicants will begin on March 1, 2019 and the position will remain open until filled. Questions about the positions should be addressed to the Search Committee at email@example.com.
