Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Environmental and Water Resources Engineering
The department Civil and Environmental Engineering at UMass Amherst is seeking an assistant
professor, and may consider hiring an associate professor. The position is defined broadly across
the entire scope of environmental and/or water resources engineering. Scholars working across
disciplines or in nontraditional areas of environmental and/or water resources engineering are
particularly encouraged. Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to resilient and
sustainable infrastructure, water chemistry, water and wastewater treatment processes and reuse,
engineering justice, soil and hazardous waste management and remediation, groundwater, air
quality, hydrometeorology, systems engineering, and others.
This broad category reflects our openness to expand the scope of the department beyond our
traditional strengths, and it complements our intent to begin a new undergraduate degree
program in EWRE (offered within the CEE department) within the next two years. Any scholar
with a related interest in environmental and/or water resources engineering should apply.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in civil, environmental, or water resources engineering or a closely
related field or anticipate such a degree by August, 2022. Applicants must also demonstrate
potential for scholarly excellence and developing an externally funded research program, and the
successful candidate will be expected to maintain an internationally recognized scholarly
presence. Candidates should also be prepared to teach existing undergraduate and graduate
courses in environmental and water resources engineering in addition to developing courses in
their area of expertise. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
As a campus with an increasingly diverse student body, we are looking for candidates who can
operate effectively in a diverse faculty and student community, and who value collegiality,
collaboration, achievement, and integrity. We encourage applications from women, minorities,
and individuals with a commitment to mentor under-represented demographics within
engineering. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths,
those who have paused their careers for family or pandemic reasons, or who spent time outside
of academia. We are committed to helping all members of our community reach their full
potential, creating best-in-practice operations to support faculty scholarship and fostering
excellence in student experiences inside and outside our department.
