Qualifications include a Ph.D. or M.Sc. in civil or environmental engineering and previous teaching experience showing an exceptional teaching record. Candidates with professional experience and a Professional Engineering (PE) license or the willingness to obtain the PE are encouraged to apply. Candidates are expected to exhibit dedication to excellence in teaching and professional service. The application should include a cover letter addressing preparation for this position, detailed curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching experience/interests, and names and contact information of at least three references.
