The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the
University of Pittsburgh invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions
effective September 1, 2017. These
positions are intended to support research and teaching activities in the broad
areas of structural engineering, structural mechanics and civil engineering
materials. Candidates with
specialization in computational mechanics and methods such as generalized finite
element and mesh-free methods, stochastic computational mechanics, inverse
problems, system identification, steel and composite steel/concrete structures,
and structural stability are especially encouraged to apply.
Candidates interested in collaborative and interdisciplinary research within
the department and existing centers (http://www.engineering.pitt.edu/Research)
across the Swanson School of Engineering are encouraged to apply. These
initiatives include nanomaterial fabrication, additive manufacturing,
computational modeling, and advanced materials development. Preference will be
given to an appointee at the Assistant Professor level but applicants with
outstanding credentials will be considered at other levels.
Outstanding candidates will have the opportunity to join our
vibrant and growing department of 23 faculty members, 280 undergraduate and 150
graduate students (50 of which are PhD students). The successful applicants
will be expected to develop and sustain a strong, externally funded research
program within their area of expertise and contribute to the teaching mission
of the Department’s graduate and undergraduate programs.
An earned doctorate in civil engineering or a closely
related field is required prior to appointment.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, a detailed resume,
statements describing teaching and research interests and future plans, copies
of three representative publications, and the names and contact information for
at least three references, all in a single PDF file, to CEE16AIS@pitt.edu.
Applications will be considered beginning
December 1, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled. We encourage
candidates from underrepresented groups and/or woman to apply for these
positions. The University of Pittsburgh
