Faculty Position in Structural Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at the University of Notre Dame (http://ceees.nd.edu/) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track or tenured position in structural engineering to complement the existing faculty. Qualified candidates at all levels (assistant, associate, or full professor) will be considered, with hiring rank and tenure status commensurate with academic accomplishments. The successful candidate must hold a doctoral degree in an appropriate field and must demonstrate potential for high quality research and teaching. The existing faculty has significant strength in natural hazard risk mitigation and sustainable and resilient civil infrastructure. In accordance with these strength areas, the department is seeking an outstanding faculty member with a research focus on, but not limited to: resilient and sustainable engineering systems, high-performance and innovative civil structures, reliability and life-cycle performance quantification, multi-scale/multi-physics computational mechanics, and advanced manufacturing of novel materials. Candidates for the position should be qualified to teach civil engineering courses, with a strong commitment to teaching excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful faculty candidate is expected to develop and sustain an externally-funded research program and publish in leading scholarly journals. Candidates must have the ability and motivation to participate in collaborative efforts with other researchers. Applications should be submitted online at http://ceees.nd.edu/structural-positions/view as a single PDF with cover letter, detailed CV, statements of research and teaching, and names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will start on December 1, 2016 and continue until the position is filled. The University of Notre Dame is committed to diversity in education and employment, and women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. The University also supports the needs of dual career couples and has a Dual Career Assistance Program in place to assist relocating spouses and significant others with their job search. Inquiries related to this search can be directed to Dr. Yahya Kurama, Chair of the Structural Engineering Search Committee, at struct@nd.edu.
