The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in Environmental Engineering at the assistant professor level. I would greatly appreciate your forwarding this announcement to outstanding applicants and encouraging them to apply. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.
We invite applicants who work at the frontiers of Environmental Engineering and can complement existing research expertise within the Department, the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, and the University. We seek candidates with research and teaching interests in environmental engineering, that are not limited to, but may include one or more of: water and wastewater treatment, environmental epidemiology, renewable energy, air quality, climate change mitigation and resilience, environmental lifecycle assessment, and environmental impacts of transportation systems.
The candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of externally-funded research and contribute to two separate ABET-accredited undergraduate education programs (Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering) as well as teach M.S. and Ph.D. graduate courses in their area of expertise. Applicants should have the ability to pursue an independent research program, collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, and have strong commitment to graduate and undergraduate mentoring. In addition, applicants should hold a PhD or be near completion of a doctoral program, and at least one of their degrees should be in Civil and/or Environmental Engineering or a closely related field.
