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. The University of Pittsburgh is an
affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the
basis of age, color, disability, gender, gender identity, marital status,
national or ethnic origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran
An earned doctorate in civil engineering, environmental
engineering and science, earth science or a closely related field is
required. Interested applicants should
submit: (1) cover letter, (2) CV, (3) teaching statement, (4) research
interests and future plans, (5) statement of diversity and inclusion, (6) copies
of three representative publications, and (7) the names and contact information
