New Jersey Institute of Technology has launched a major faculty hiring initiative to support the university's mission-critical strategic research and technological innovation areas. These new positions are targeted to not only leverage and complement existing faculty strengths, but more importantly, to lead NJIT into new frontiers of research and discovery. In the first phase of this initiative, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering invites outstanding applicants for multiple tenure/tenure-track assistant/associate/full professor faculty positions starting in or before August, 2013. Consideration will be given to higher rank applicants with appropriate levels of academic excellence and demonstrated research accomplishment. Areas include:
-Resilient Infrastructure Systems (sustainable design and materials selection, energy efficient design and construction, green building design and operation, simulation technologies that model societal interaction with infrastructure systems, linkage of material/structural state data with life-cycle models and inclusion of social science and economic models in infrastructure design and construction processes)
-Intelligent Transportation Systems (sensors and digital communications to collect, process, and disseminate information to improve the safety, efficiency and effectiveness).
Successful candidates should have an earned Ph.D. degree in civil, environmental, transportation, or materials engineering or closely-related field and possess a strong enthusiasm and ability to teach broadly within the department. Candidates are expected to sustain a significant externally funded research program in their areas of specialization. We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong research interests with proven research experience and scholarly accomplishment.
Preferred Qualifications: Professional Engineer license. At the university's discretion, the education and experience prerequisites may be excepted where the candidate can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the university, an equivalent combination of education and experience specifically preparing the candidate for success in the position.
