Asst Prof position in Pavements & Geomaterials at FAMU-FSU CEE



Assistant Professor Position in Pavement Infrastructure and Geomaterials
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Florida A&M University – Florida State
University (FAMU-FSU) joint College of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track assistant
professor position in Geomaterials and Geotechnical Engineering. The successful candidate’s expertise is
expected to complement and strengthen existing faculty research and teaching in civil and environmental
engineering. Applicants should have expertise in one or more areas of geomaterials engineering, including
but not limited to:

• Advanced pavement materials such as design and characterization of asphalt materials, application
of nanotechnology or additive manufacturing in pavement materials, Smart and multi-functional
pavement materials, recycling and reuse of pavement materials
• Climate change considerations in pavement engineering and sustainable geo-materials and coastal
• Pavement sustainability, green technologies, and life-cycle assessment
In addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full
participation of members from historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities in
higher education. We expect to hire at the Assistant Professor rank, but exceptional candidates for the
Associate Professor rank will be considered.

The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is unique in combining two outstanding universities with overlapping
but distinct missions—the nation’s top public Historically Black College/University and one of the nation’s
Top 20 Public Universities and Highest Research Activity Universities. As such, we provide an outstanding
research and entrepreneurship-based education to one of the most diverse student populations in the U.S.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has a strong and growing reputation with a special
focus on disaster resilience and sustainability, recently establishing the Center for Resilient Infrastructure
and Disaster Response (RIDER). The successful candidate will join 21 full-time faculty members in a
department with approximately 400 undergraduate and 80 graduate students.
Candidates must have an earned doctorate in civil and/or environmental engineering or closely related
field. Post-doctoral experience in related topic areas is preferred. The successful candidate is expected to
establish and maintain a robust externally-funded research program, have a strong commitment to diversity
and teaching excellence in undergraduate and graduate courses, and participate in college and professional
service. Possession of a Professional Engineering (PE) License or the ability to obtain a Florida PE license is
highly desirable.
