Environmental Engineering Faculty Position, University of Notre Dame.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, University of Notre Dame, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Environmental Engineering. Qualified candidates at all levels will be considered, including endowed chair, with hiring rank and tenure status commensurate with academic accomplishments. Examples of research areas include, but are not limited to: microbiological aspects of water quality and treatment, membrane processes for water treatment and reuse, molecular tools for microbial community analysis, micropollutants in water and wastewater, natural organic matter and its effects on water quality and treatment, environmental effects of nanoparticles/nanoengineering, and fate and transport of heavy metals and actinides. The department has a unique blend of environmental engineering and environmental geoscience faculty, and has outstanding research facilities. Current research strengths include biofilms and biofilm processes, environmental nanoscience and technology, environmental microbiology, environmental surface chemistry, environmental geochemistry and geomicrobiology, groundwater hydrology, environmental and computational fluid mechanics, and environmental actinide chemistry and mineralogy. Information about the department can be found at http://www.ceees.nd.edu/. We seek individuals with dynamic and highly innovative research agendas that may cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Candidates with a Professional Engineering (PE) license, or willingness to obtain one, are encouraged to apply. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in civil or environmental engineering or related field. Candidates are expected to exhibit dedication to excellence in research, teaching, and professional service. The application package should include a cover letter addressing preparation for this position, curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information of at least three references. Applications should be uploaded directly, as a single PDF file, to: http://ceees.nd.edu/positions-available-environmental-engineering.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at the University of Notre Dame has an open one-year position for a post-doctoral scholar, with possible extension to two years. General responsibilities are independent and collaborative, directed, research related to one or more of the following: mesoscale modeling, processes, data assimilation, and predictability in and around complex terrain. The appointee will conduct research, present results at PI meetings and academic conferences, and prepare results for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
- Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences or a related field.
- Familiarity and understanding of the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model, including experience setting up experiments, executing them on massively parallel computers, and analyzing the output.
- An understanding of basic predictability concepts, and knowledge of how to assess predictive skill.
- Strong oral and written communication skills.
Additional experience, not necessary but desirable, may include:
- Mesoscale data assimilation, especially ensemble data assimilation.
- Modeling in complex terrain.
- Observation processing and quality control.
- Analysis of boundary-layer processes, and Earth-atmosphere interactions.
The appointment provides a salary, subject to U.S. income tax, of $60,000.00 and benefits as described at the following link: http://hr.nd.edu/assets/121245/p1_benefit_summary_2014.pdf
