The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions effective September 1, 2019. These positions are part of the strategic expansion intended to support research and teaching activities in the area of Sustainable and Environmental Engineering (SEE).
For the first tenure-track position, we seek candidates with fundamental expertise, research and teaching interests in the areas of environmental aquatic chemistry, water quality, sustainable water treatment technologies, and the water-health nexus.
For the second tenure-track position, we seek candidates with expertise and research and teaching interests in the broad area of sustainable urban engineering. This includes, but is not limited to, building energy use evaluation and optimization, infrastructure resiliency, big data analytics and visualization for sustainable urban systems.
For both of these positions, we are interested in applicants that build on and will contribute to our current strengths in environmental systems analysis. Applicants with a research program that addresses problems at multiple scales and have the desire to work across disciplinary boundaries are particularly encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to appointees at the Assistant Professor level, but applicants with outstanding credentials will be considered at other levels. We are interested in candidates that can collaborate in interdisciplinary research and teaching within the Department and/or related focus areas in the Swanson School of Engineering. Further, the ability to collaborate with existing centers, such as the Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/MCSI and the Center for Energy http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/cfe, is highly desirable. Candidates will have the opportunity to join our vibrant, diverse and growing department of 24 faculty members, 300 undergraduates and 130 full-time graduate students (including 50 PhD students).
Successful applicants will be expected to develop and sustain a strong, externally funded research program within their area of expertise. We strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented US minority groups and women to apply for this position.
